The State of Alaska recently revealed that nearly 80% of Alaskans who died of COVID had at least one to three additional underlying comorbidities that contributed to their death, and 21% had four or more.

According to a Dec. 1 report from Alaska’s Section of Epidemiology, there were 658 deaths which the state ascribed to COVID from Jan. 1, 2020, to Sept. 30 of this year. That’s 0.09% of the overall population, and 0.59% of the 109,749 COVID cases recorded by the state.

The vast majority of deaths occurred among those older than 70 years, and the highest death rate was among those 80 years or older. Deaths in licensed long-term care or assisted living facilities accounted for 13% of overall COVID deaths.

Not a single COVID death was reported among Alaskans who are under age 20.

The most common underlying comorbidities were cardiovascular diseases (including hypertension) (59%), diabetes mellitus (31%) and chronic respiratory diseases (25%). This data was obtained from contact tracers and analysts during interviews and hospital record reviews.

At the conclusion of the report, the state suggests only six ways to prevent COVID deaths – get vaccinated, get a booster, control medical problems, wear masks and social distance. Nowhere does the state recommend early treatment options such as ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine and vitamin D and C supplements, all of which have been shown to provide benefits in treating the virus.

  • JR says:

    One of the comorbidities is the fact that ‘orthodox’ medicine has no early treatment protocol in place. Something that there should be but there isn’t any money in that.

  • Brandon says:

    If you have an android, look up Covid-19 exposure.
    Be sure to turn it off.. while you still can.

  • David+Shoemaker says:

    Keep up on these articles. Short, to the point and informative.

    How many people got hit by a bus, but had
    Covid. Wait they died because of covid Lie’s
    What happened to the common flu we’ve had around forever. Wait they died because of covid not the flu they had a positive Ful/covid test, more lie’s

    • Larry says:

      Same amount of people that got a vaccine, and something with their health went badly. Don’t worry though, they were 300lbs. Bad diet. Diabetic. Hypertension.. which are the VERY large % of comorbidities listed in COVID deaths.. But you’ll blame the vaccine.. Lol.
      But when those people die of COVID it’s fake news, and it’s their health issues, right? You people are idiots.

  • Wisdom Cries in the Streets says:

    How about maintaining a healthy weight, eating a balanced diet, and moderating alcohol? I kind of get the feeling those are, and have long been, excellent preventatives against early death and disease.

  • Kaye says:

    They weren’t paid to push anything but the fake vaccine, period!!

  • david Boyle says:

    Joel, does the State maintain any data on the success rates of hospitals treating Covid patients? How many Covid patients have survived hospital treatments? I also noted that there is virtually no information re vitamin D unless one does a very deep dive. There is no information on the State’s Covid web page.

  • Elizabeth Henry says:

    Follow the money. No profits to be massively reaped with the, readily available before Covid, therapies, hence no motivation to do the necessary blind studies to prove ‘officially’ they work. So of course they are not included. Billions have been made from the vaccines. Boatloads of funding for studies.

  • Wendy says:

    How many of those deaths involved remdesivir? I’m gonna take a wild guess and say, if they were admitted to the hospital, 100% of them!!

  • Natural Alaskan says:

    So, the average age of patients who died with Covid-19 was older than their life expectancy. They were vitamin D deficient, and we’re denied any early medical treatment. Many were isolated from family caregivers, and died of thirst or starvation. Alaska sounds like New York.

  • dalton stokes says:

    Is anybody ever going to expose the fact that this virus has never been isolated. They haven’t even isolated it enough to make a blood test. I have been screaming it for two years but everybody is scared to say it. Baby boomers are dying, people are eating bad food, and they called it a new virus. Again, it has never been isolated. No one has ever seen it with their damn eyeballs. Please wake up

  • kris spencer says:

    When a medicine is KNOWN to work, and such treatments are readily available to a hospital, that hospital bares some of the responsibility for the patient’s death. Ventilators and remdesivir certainly caused a great deal of damage to internal organs. The mom of an acquaintance of mine got the virus and had to go to hospital. Family inquired about hydroxy but was told “it didn’t work”. A week and 1/2 later, she had died.” Family said the doctor told them that she had a collapsed lung and had such severe tissue damage that even if she did live, it would be a long, hard painful recovery. I thought to myself…a Virus did this???? Many months later the facts are coming out and we now know what really happens. And the hospitals seem darn proud of their Covid deaths, many of those deaths totally preventable!

  • Richard Russell says:

    I’m 79. Had COVID and it was no big deal. A couple days of flu-like symptoms, and a positive test the following week. Now, I’m immune.

  • jh says:

    Are all of you covid vaccinated folks scared after the FDA requested 75 years to process safety information data over the mRNA vaccine, that FOIA requested? (FOIA is a law that gives you the right to access information from the federal government). We have to wait 75 years to find out if the mRNA experimental Pfizer covid vaccine is safe? Johnson & Johnson Vaccine now causes an Elevated Risk of Guillain-Barré Syndrome. What are they hiding from you? Are you safe? If you have a severe reaction from the mRNA covid experimental shot, (bell’s palsy, blood clots, heart problems, autoimmune problems and other side effects), you cannot sue the manufacture for any liability. This is very scary. Currently there is a group of 30 or more professors and scientists from universities including Yale, Harvard, UCLA and Brown, ( the plaintiffs) filed suit in September, in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas, seeking expedited access to the records. They say that releasing the information could help reassure vaccine skeptics that the shot is indeed “safe and effective and, thus, increase confidence in the Pfizer vaccine. “The plaintiffs, also include overseas professors from the UK, Germany, Denmark, Australia and Canada. When a SAFER covid vaccine becomes available, like the Novavax vaccine, people will take it, because it is made more like our traditional vaccines. *****WE ALSO NEED EARLY, SAFE COVID TREATMENT NOW! WE NEED TO ADMINISTER HUMAN IVERMECTIN TO PREVENT ALL OF THE UNNECESSARY DEATHS (MURDER) THAT IS OCCURING ALL OVER THE COUNTRY IN HOSPITALS!!!!!!

    Dr. Oz, TV personality on the Dr. Oz Show, who is a Professor of Surgery and a renowned heart surgeon at Columbia University in New York, has announced he was joining the race for the U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania, as a Republican.
    Dr. Oz is calling for Dr. Anthony Fauci to RESIGN.
    He says Americans have lost “faith and confidence” in Dr. Fauci, because he has put political science ahead of the science on COVID-19.

    Another Judge doing his job!!!!! More hospitals will be sued!
    A Virginia hospital was held in contempt of court Monday after refusing to administer ivermectin to a woman who has been battling COVID-19 since early October 2021.
    Kathleen Davies, a 63-year-old northern Virginia woman, became severely ill with COVID in October, and she has been on a ventilator since Nov. 3.
    Davies was prescribed ivermectin by her family doctor, but she could not complete her regimen upon being admitted to the Fauquier Hospital in Warrenton.
    That’s because the northern Virginia hospital refused to administer the ivermectin, “citing medical, legal and practical concerns,” the Fauquier Times reported.
    “They believe it’s a fight between the rights of the hospital and the rights of citizens. They feel their rights trump her rights,” Christopher Davies told the Fauquier Times.
    The hospital claimed because none of its doctors “believe Ivermectin is in Ms. Davies’s best interests and all have refused to prescribe” and because Kathleen’s doctor — Dr. Martha Maturi — did not have privileges to practice medicine at Fauquier Hospital, it could continue to ignore the court order.
    What did the judge’s newest ruling say?
    In a ruling on Monday, Fisher held the Fauquier hospital in contempt of court, ordered the administration of ivermectin, and imposed daily $10,000 fines retroactive to Dec. 9.
    Judge Fisher held the hospital in contempt for “needlessly interposing requirements that stand in the way of the patient’s desired physician administering investigational drugs as part of the Health Care Decisions Act and the federal and state Right to Try Acts.”
    Kathleen Davies was given ivermectin at 8:45 p.m.

    Association of American Physicians and Surgeons9Biden’s Bounty on Your Life: Hospitals’ Incentive Payments for COVID-19
    November 17, 2021
    By Elizabeth Lee Vliet, M.D. and Ali Shultz, J.D. –
    Upon admission to a once-trusted hospital, American patients with COVID-19 become virtual prisoners, subjected to a rigid treatment protocol with roots in Ezekiel Emanuel’s “Complete Lives System” for rationing medical care in those over age 50. They have a shockingly high mortality rate. How and why is this happening, and what can be done about it?
    As exposed in audio recordings, hospital executives in Arizona admitted meeting several times a week to lower standards of care, with coordinated restrictions on visitation rights. Most COVID-19 patients’ families are deliberately kept in the dark about what is really being done to their loved ones.
    The combination that enables this tragic and avoidable loss of hundreds of thousands of lives includes (1) The CARES Act, which provides hospitals with bonus incentive payments for all things related to COVID-19 (testing, diagnosing, admitting to hospital, use of remdesivir and ventilators, reporting COVID-19 deaths, and vaccinations) and (2) waivers of customary and long-standing patient rights by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
    In 2020, the Texas Hospital Association submitted requests for waivers to CMS. According to Texas attorney Jerri Ward, “CMS has granted ‘waivers’ of federal law regarding patient rights. Specifically, CMS purports to allow hospitals to violate the rights of patients or their surrogates with regard to medical record access, to have patient visitation, and to be free from seclusion.” She notes that “rights do not come from the hospital or CMS and cannot be waived, as that is the antithesis of a ‘right.’ The purported waivers are meant to isolate and gain total control over the patient and to deny patient and patient’s decision-maker the ability to exercise informed consent.”
    Creating a “National Pandemic Emergency” provided justification for such sweeping actions that override individual physician medical decision-making and patients’ rights. The CARES Act provides incentives for hospitals to use treatments dictated solely by the federal government under the auspices of the NIH. These “bounties” must paid back if not “earned” by making the COVID-19 diagnosis and following the COVID-19 protocol.
    The hospital payments include:
    • A “free” required PCR test in the Emergency Room or upon admission for every patient, with government-paid fee to hospital.
    • Added bonus payment for each positive COVID-19 diagnosis.
    • Another bonus for a COVID-19 admission to the hospital.
    • A 20 percent “boost” bonus payment from Medicare on the entire hospital bill for use of remdesivir instead of medicines such as Ivermectin.
    • Another and larger bonus payment to the hospital if a COVID-19 patient is mechanically ventilated.
    • More money to the hospital if cause of death is listed as COVID-19, even if patient did not die directly of COVID-19.
    • A COVID-19 diagnosis also provides extra payments to coroners.
    CMS implemented “value-based” payment programs that track data such as how many workers at a healthcare facility receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Now we see why many hospitals implemented COVID-19 vaccine mandates. They are paid more.
    Outside hospitals, physician MIPS quality metrics link doctors’ income to performance-based pay for treating patients with COVID-19 EUA drugs. Failure to report information to CMS can cost the physician 4% of reimbursement.
    Because of obfuscation with medical coding and legal jargon, we cannot be certain of the actual amount each hospital receives per COVID-19 patient. But Attorney Thomas Renz and CMS whistleblowers have calculated a total payment of at least $100,000 per patient.
    What does this mean for your health and safety as a patient in the hospital?
    There are deaths from the government-directed COVID treatments. For remdesivir, studies show that 71–75 percent of patients suffer an adverse effect, and the drug often had to be stopped after five to ten days because of these effects, such as kidney and liver damage, and death. Remdesivir trials during the 2018 West African Ebola outbreak had to be discontinued because death rate exceeded 50%. Yet, in 2020, Anthony Fauci directed that remdesivir was to be the drug hospitals use to treat COVID-19, even when the COVID clinical trials of remdesivir showed similar adverse effects.
    In ventilated patients, the death toll is staggering. A National Library of Medicine January 2021 report of 69 studies involving more than 57,000 patients concluded that fatality rates were 45 percent in COVID-19 patients receiving invasive mechanical ventilation, increasing to 84 percent in older patients. Renz announced at a Truth for Health Foundation Press Conference that CMS data showed that in Texas hospitals, 84.9% percent of all patients died after more than 96 hours on a ventilator.
    Then there are deaths from restrictions on effective treatments for hospitalized patients. Renz and a team of data analysts have estimated that more than 800,000 deaths in America’s hospitals, in COVID-19 and other patients, have been caused by approaches restricting fluids, nutrition, antibiotics, effective antivirals, anti-inflammatories, and therapeutic doses of anti-coagulants.
    We now see government-dictated medical care at its worst in our history since the federal government mandated these ineffective and dangerous treatments for COVID-19, and then created financial incentives for hospitals and doctors to use only those “approved” (and paid for) approaches.
    Our formerly trusted medical community of hospitals and hospital-employed medical staff have effectively become “bounty hunters” for your life. Patients need to now take unprecedented steps to avoid going into the hospital for COVID-19.
    Patients need to take active steps to plan before getting sick to use early home-based treatment of COVID-19 that can help you save your life.
