Where Have All the Heart Attacks Gone? <https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/06/well/live/coronavirus-doctors-hospitals-emergency-care-heart-attack-stroke.html?algo=identity&fellback=false&imp_id=517932151&imp_id=478355170&action=click&module=Science%20%20Technology&pgtype=Homepage> 



### Heart attacks didn't "go" anywhere. People are still having heart attacks (MI) but because of the 24/7 breathless Chinese virus hype they are more scared of going to hospitals than usual, so many just wait at home until the pain is over. This isn't good, since failing to get promptly treated for MI does increase your mortality and morbidity.





Alternative explanation: the heart attacks are being counted as Covid-19 deaths rather than their co-morbidities.  Dr. Birx has honestly admitted that patients who die with Covid-19 are counted as dying of Covid-19.




I understand the motive for doing that, but it has consequences.
