World-renowned vaccinologist and SARS-CoV-2 expert Dr. Melvin Sanicas said that the claim that only six percent of the deaths recorded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention citing CoViD-19 as the only cause is “misleading and very dangerous”.
Sanicas, in his Facebook page, said 94 percent of cases people who died of COVID-19 “also developed other issues or had other problems at the same time”.
“For example, someone who gets COVID-19 then develops respiratoryfailure and then dies of kidney failure would have three things recorded on their death certificate: the immediate cause (kidney failure), the secondary cause (respiratory failure), and the underlying cause (COVID-19), not just COVID-19,” he said.
This, he said, is a reminder that the SARS-CoV-2 “can trigger a series of events that can ultimately take a person’s life”.
Sanicas also reminded the public to continue observing health protocols like wearing masks when outside the house, washing hands properly and frequently, continuing with physical distancing, and avoiding closed spaces with poor ventilation, crowded places with many people nearby, and close contact settings.
