CDC Director Rochelle Wallensky said the agency will release the distinction between those who died from COVID and those who died with COVID. During an interview on Sunday, she was pressed on how many of the more than 800,000 deaths linked to COVID, died from the virus or other comorbidities.

The CDC head deflected by talking about how much the vaccines reduce severe illness and death. When pressed, however, she did say that many in hospitals with COVID came in with other issues.

“In some hospitals that we’ve talked to up to 40 percent of the patients coming in with COVID are coming in not because their sick with COVID, but because they’re coming in with something else and have have had the COIVD Omicron variant detected.”

The CDC chief’s comments came amid dwindling public trust and confidence in the agency as the organization is seen as issuing guidance based on politics instead of science.
