The correlation between mortality rates regarding COVID and comorbidities has been a topic of concern – but also rarely mentioned in mainstream media – since the onset of the pandemic in early 2020.
Yet, during a January 7th appearance on Good Morning America, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky admitted that the vast majority of deaths attributed to COVID involved people who hosted “at least four comorbidities.”
When the Good Morning America host asked Dr. Walensky “is it time to start rethinking how we’re living with this virus, that it’s potentially here to stay” the CDC director responded by proclaiming most deaths involved those who were “unwell to begin with” and promoted getting the COVID jab and booster shots.
“The overwhelming number of deaths, over 75%, occurred in people who had at least four comorbidities. So really these are people who were unwell to begin with. And yes, really encouraging news in the context of Omicron – this means not only to get your primary series but to get your booster series. And yes, we’re really encouraged by these results.”
