President Joe Biden, during his first full day in the White House on Jan. 21, released a 100-plus-page report detailing a "National Strategy for COVID-19."

Biden's introductory letter promised his "fellow Americans" that "our national strategy will be driven by scientists and public health experts," and that his administration "will always be honest and transparent with you about both the good news and the bad."

Eleven days later, on Monday, Feb. 1, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the latest "Provisional Death Counts" for COVID-19, which are published daily Mondays through Fridays, and which totally discredit Biden's promise of honesty and transparency.

On Friday, Jan. 29, 2021 the CDC issued these fatality totals:

  • 369,453 COVID deaths
  • 3,446,816 deaths from all causes

(since Dec. 28, 2019)

On morning of Monday, Feb. 1, 2021, these deaths tolls were published on the CDC's website:

  • 413,196 COVID deaths
  • 3,506,691 deaths from all causes

In three days, the COVID death toll skyrocketed by a stupendous 43,743, or 12%. Deaths from all causes jumped by just 59,875, or 2%.

COVID deaths account for a highly anomalous 73% of deaths from all causes added during these three days.

The following tables document the much smaller increases, in the CDC's Provisional COVID deaths and deaths from all causes, over the three previous weekends, when Donald Trump was president for two:

Date               Deaths
COVID All Causes
Friday, Jan. 8 318,786 3,223,437
Monday, Jan. 11 323,148 3,243,684
Increases 4,362 20,247
Friday, Jan. 15 335,585 3,297,716
Tuesday, Jan. 19 (CDC Closed for MLK Holiday) 340,430 3,321,161
Increases 4,845 23,445
Friday, Jan. 22 349,433 3,365,489
Monday, Jan. 25 353,975 3,376,329
Increases 4,542 10,840

The average death increases over these three weekends are:

  • 4,583 COVID
  • 18,184 all causes

Consequently, the increases of 43,743 COVID and 59,875 deaths from possibly other causes this past weekend (Jan. 29 to Feb. 1), are higher, than the average for the three previous weekends, that they are epidemiologically worthless.

An examination of the weekly death tolls, published by the CDC on Jan. 29 and Feb. 1, for the five weeks ending between Dec. 19, 2020 and Jan.16, 2021, may adversely impact President Biden's promise, in his Jan. 21 "COVID Strategy Report," of providing Americans with non-political, scientifically-driven, data about this pandemic.

This table shows the weekly death tolls on Jan. 29, 2021:

Week Ending COVID Deaths Deaths All Causes
12/19/20 18,020 72,086
12/26/20 15,365 66,404
1/2/21 10,719 57,344
1/9/21 6,540 45,724
1/16/21 3,899 37,622

This table shows the updated death tolls on Feb. 1, 2021:

Week Ending COVID Deaths Deaths All Causes
12/19/20 19,857 74,271
12/26/20 19,292 71,081
1/2/21 17,706 65,381
1/9/21 16,164 55,973
1/16/21 13,779 48,997

This table shows the weekly increases in COVID and deaths from all causes, between Jan. 29, and Feb.1, and the highly-suspicious ratios of the former to the latter:

Week Ending                     INCREASES  Ratio
COVID All Causes
12/19/20 1,837 2,185 84%
12/26/20 3,927 4,677 84%
1/2/21 6,987 8,037 87%
1/9/21 9,624 10,249 94%
1/16/21 9,880 11,375 87%
In conclusion, while I have written a number of articles in Newsmax since April 2020, documenting the "Fake COVID Epidemiology" disseminated by leading Democrats, including New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, New Gov. Phil Murphy and Joe Biden, the mind-boggling increase of 43,743 COVID deaths, reported by the CDC between Jan. 29 and Feb. 1, is the most brazenly dishonest and invalid.
