June 27, 2020 — Deaths from coronavirus are rapidly plunging in the United States. The media will have you believe we are about to have a massive surge in COVID deaths this summer, but they have pulled a trick on us.
The “surge” they are speaking of is for cases of coronavirus, not deaths. What is a “case” of coronavirus? If you take a test and it comes back positive, that is considered a “case.” Even if you feel great, have no symptoms and never get sick, that is still considered part of this new coronavirus “summer surge.” The mainstream media and Democrat Governors like Andrew Cuomo are no longer talking about deaths from coronavirus because they are in fact plunging in every state, according to the CDC’s own data illustrated in the graph at the top of this report and below:

Andrew Cuomo recently stated Florida was on the verge of seeing a lack of hospital beds due to surging cases of coronavirus but that is a lie. The only hospital beds that are nearing capacity in Florida are ICU beds. The rest of the hospitals are almost empty and those beds can be used or converted into ICU utilization if necessary, but it is highly unlikely it will be necessary.
Why is it highly unlikely?
The coronavirus is losing its virulence according to Professor Matteo Bassetti, the chief of infectious diseases at San Martino General Hospital in Genoa, Italy. Dr. Bassetti stated, “(The novel coronavirus) was like an aggressive tiger in March and April but now it’s like a wild cat. Even elderly patients, aged 80 or 90, are now sitting up in bed and they are breathing without help. The same patients would have died in two or three days before.” (emphasis added)
This is what all viruses do as they evolve, and it makes logical sense. If a virus kills everyone it infects it will eventually die itself as it will have no habitat to live within. In the long history of virology scientists have found the overwhelming majority of viruses evolve to be less virulent, less deadly, as time passes. Every coronavirus we know of has done this in the past, including MERS and SARS CoV-1. The novel coronavirus we face now – SARS CoV-2 – is behaving precisely the same way, as should be expected.
