Trump supporters knew this truth was being kept hidden from the public.
The media called it a conspiracy theory.
And now CNN just made a stunning public confession that will have Donald Trump seeing red.
From the start of the pandemic, Donald Trump and many of his supporters believed public health officials inflated the number of COVID deaths and hospitalizations.
The corporate-controlled media – led by CNN – called it a conspiracy and claimed Trump was spreading misinformation.
One of the so-called “public health experts” who foisted the fascist COVID lockdown and mask mandate regime on the American people was CNN medical analyst Dr. Leana Wen.
Wen appeared on CNN to discuss her new Washington Post column where she finally admitted – nearly three years after the fact – that Trump and his supporters were right and that officials exaggerated the number of deaths and hospitalizations attributed to COVID.
Leana Wen admits the U.S. has been dramatically overcounting Covid deaths.
Wen says we need to start separating actual Covid deaths from deaths with Covid…

In her column, Wen said she spoke to the attending physician at Emory Decatur Hospital and the former President of Georgia’s chapter of Infectious Diseases Society of America, Robin Dretler, who now felt comfortable telling the truth that everyone in the hospital got tested for COVID no matter what reason they came in for, meaning even gunshot wound victims were being counted in the COVID hospitalization and death numbers.
“Since every hospitalized patient gets tested for covid, many are incidentally positive,” she said.
“People who have very low white blood cell counts from chemotherapy might be admitted because of bacterial pneumonia or foot gangrene. They may also have covid, but covid is not the main reason why they’re so sick,” Dretler told Wen.
Wen also quoted the work of Shira Doran, who found that the use of the steroid dexamethasone – which is standard treatment for COVID patients with low oxygen levels – served as a good proxy for the true number of people who came to the hospital for COVID.
This number showed just 30 percent of hospitalizations were for COVID.
CNN and Wen can admit this truth now because the Democrats don’t want the Republican candidate in 2024 to point out that more people died from COVID in one year under Joe Biden than under Trump.
COVID was always a political hype job by the Democrats and the media to defeat Trump.
It’s only now that the press feels comfortable admitting this fact.
