Abstract

COVID-19, also known as the Corona virus, has been labeled a pandemic based on the number of actual and potential deaths. However, there is mounting evidence from both official sources and unofficial reports that the death count is being inflated, at least in the United States. This paper reviews the evidence and discusses some of the implications.
