When you see the “only 6%” trend on Twitter, the next obvious question is “only a 6% percentage?” Only 6% of dogs wear shoes? Only 6% of cats plan to plot a coup in your home? 6% of what Tinder profile says is true?
Do not. In the following paragraphs on the “2019 Coronavirus Disease Temporary Death Count (COVID-19)” page of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website, various tweets are derived from the 6% value:
“Table 3 shows the types of health conditions associated with deaths from the corona virus disease (COVID-19) in 2019 and the contributing causes. For 6% of deaths, the only cause mentioned is COVID-19.”
For example, a Twitter account called Mel Q posted the following:
Yes, Q does not stand for “quahog” or “fast, Yosemite.” It seems to represent QAnon, which is a far-right conspiracy theory, the argument claims, among other things, a pedophile who worships Satan The Internet is selling children on a global scale and is engaged in a “secret war” with US President Donald J. Trump. , As Mike Wendling stated in BBC News.
Speaking of Trump, is it Donald J. Trump who retweeted Mel Q’s tweet? It looks like this because the account is called @realDonaldTrump, not @notreallyDonaldTrump. So if the president retweeted Mel Q’s statement, then it must be credible, right?
One small problem with @littellmel Tweet is that it does not accurately describe what the CDC says on its website. Therefore, if you search for the original Tweet now, you will receive a message stating that “This Tweet is no longer available because it violates Twitter rules.” Well, what is Mr. President doing?
If you want to know why the original Tweet was incorrect or misleading, just read the rest of the CDC instructions after 6%: “For deaths caused by conditions or causes other than COVID-19, there are on average 2.6 conditions or deaths Reason.” Understatement on these other situations or reasons. They include adult pneumonia, respiratory distress syndrome, respiratory failure, respiratory arrest, other diseases of the respiratory system, and sepsis. Well, these sound a lot like the things that Covid-19 can cause, and the people who ultimately lead to serious Covid-19 deaths.
