    When considering statistics and numbers reported in regards to Covid 19 it is worth noting that in the UK a recent request for freedom of information from the office of national statistics found that for the number of deaths where Covid-19 was the only cause mentioned on the death certificate, 1 Feb 2020 - 31 Dec 2021, the total number was 6,183 people - average age 82 yrs.

    Just 6,183 died of Covid 19 over 2 years.

    Let that sink in .

    The vast majority of the numbers reported were people who died WITH Covid 19 and not OF Covid 19 and they mostly had co-morbitidies.

    Mentioning that fact will get you de-platformed, demonetized and demonized. There are reliable reports that shed light on the financial incentive to report 'OF', rather than 'with'.
