With COVID fearmongering, the media have literally scared people to death in DC

Despite being a major city, with heavy incoming and outgoing travel (especially to and from New York), Washington, D.C., has to date suffered very little from the coronavirus pandemic.

Yet thanks to the hysteria kicked up by the national media and Democrats, mostly for political purposes, it looks like a lot more people in the nation’s capital have died than ever had to.

D.C. health department director Dr. LaQuandra Nesbitt said this week that, looking at data between Jan. 1 through April 12, deaths in the district were up by 40% from last year. But among the excess deaths, less than half were related to COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus.

Instead, people are dying at higher rates from heart attacks, diabetes, strokes and overdoses, according to WTOP.

Moreover, health officials noticed that in that time frame there was a drastic decrease in 911 emergency calls for chest paints, heart attacks and strokes. They concluded that the change was due to the instilled fear caused by the pandemic.

We need a new category: Pandemic fear-related deaths.

And yes, this has everything to do with cable news blaring out each and every “new case,” incessantly feeding the impression that every man woman and child was at risk of dying in the street.

Imagine being so scared of a virus that all evidence shows is deadly for very few people that you refuse to call 911 as you clutch at your failing heart.

Thanks, media! Thanks, Democrats! You’ve literally scared people to death.
