I’ve noticed that one of the most common conspiracy theories floating about is that we are in a normal flu season during which deaths are strangely skyrocketing and reaching unprecedented levels in April, but all deaths are being attributed to COVID-19 as part of the global conspiracy. There is another argument that posits millions of false positives and undiagnosed asymptomatic cases in order to bring the mortality rate down to the regular flu. Total deaths are the most accurate measuring stick.
Note: Alabama investigates and verifies every coronavirus death. The official death count lags behind the investigations. I’m not sure what it is like in other states, but we are not attributing every death to coronavirus.
