Move reduced the actual number of COVID deaths that died from comorbidities.
Good Morning America redacted CDC Director Rochelle Walensky’s comments on the percentage of COVID deaths dying from comorbidities, reducing the actual number.
As we highlighted yesterday, Walensky appeared to concede that over 75% of COVID deaths were people “who had at least four comorbidities” and “were unwell from the start.”
However, it has since been revealed that she was referring to a CDC study of 1.2 million vaccinated people which found that of the small number of deaths, 77.8% had four comorbidities.

Walensky spoke about a tiny number of people involved in this particular CDC study, not all of the COVID deaths.
GMA did not issue a correction, merely adding a note at the end of the interview that it had been “edited due to time constraints.”
In reality, the percentage of COVID deaths that die with multiple comorbidities is significantly higher than 75%.
As Chris Martenson PhD explained, based on CDC data, only 0.9% of all COVID deaths were people with zero comorbidities.
Hurry! Explain the nuance behind Rochelle’s comments in case the Holy Narrative gets questioned!! Or, we could note that her comments were accurate when applied to unvaccinated people too. As I outlined when I reviewed the CDC’s OWN DATA in July ’21. https://t.co/rMIQ1F0ShT pic.twitter.com/hK2Hl78Gp9

In August 2020, the CDC also acknowledged that “6% of deaths were attributed to COVID-19 as the sole cause,” meaning that 94% of COVID-related deaths had at least one other comorbidity.
CNN says only 6% of COVID deaths were COVID only

So GMA’s editing of Walensky’s comments was only to minimize the actual number of people dying with COVID and other comorbidities and not of COVID.
