Coronavirus deaths in New York City suddenly spiked by more than 3,700 people after politically motivated Democrat officials shockingly tacked on a group of victims who were merely suspected of having COVID-19.
New York City now joins a growing list of liberal run states counting “probable” cases as infected.
The additional deaths – 3,778, to be exact – include people who are “presumed to have been infected because of their symptoms and medical history,” according to two sources cited by the New York Times, which reported the deaths on Tuesday.
After last week’s CDC announcement that the number of Coronavirus deaths would be closer to 75,000 which placed it be far below their previous estimate of 100,000 to 240,000.

Democrats Leaders fearing Liberal Governors praising Donald Trump would torpedo any chance of winning the presidency in the November election, started to politically weaponize Coronavirus Deaths, in an effort to make President Trump’s Coronavirus response look far worse.
These “probable” victims suddenly inflated the total number of New York City coronavirus deaths to 10,367 and raise the nation’s Coronavirus death toll by a whopping 17 percent.
according to the New York Times’ highly suspect sources over 26,000 people are now considered to have died from the coronavirus in America.
Expect The “probable” Coronavirus Deaths To Become Even More Weaponized By The Left
New York City is among only a handful of places in the country, including Connecticut, Ohio, and Delaware, that are only now beginning to count people who had died where the infection is presumed but not confirmed.
In California and Washington — locations of early cases in the American outbreak — officials said they included deaths as connected to COVID-19 only when the disease was confirmed by testing. Louisiana and Chicago followed the same protocol.
One must wonder how soon these Liberal-run states will get the word from their Democrat party leaders to start including “probables” to their “Officially Killed” totals.
In any other time in our nation’s history, state governors would never allow people ‘possibly killed by’ to be added to the state’s official death total, fearing they would be held accountable politically.
But as long as the delusional Democrats have their media accomplices pushing the debunked narrative that ‘President Trump responded slowly to the pandemic’ they have nothing to fear politically.
Liberal Democrat and Never-Trump Governors will use their ‘Orange Man Bad’ excuse as a scapegoat for their own failures to prepare for the Coronavirus pandemic.
The weaponizing of Coronavirus death was never became more evident than when New York City’s moronic mayor, Bill de Blasio, suddenly and without notice decided, to have a new round of briefings over the weekend.
Despite never once including these ‘probable’ coronavirus deaths when speaking publicly since no tests had confirmed that the victims had the COVID-19 disease when they passed away.
During his unscheduled weekend briefings Mayor de Blasio suddenly now included these presumptive cases in NYC’s latest Coronavirus death toll.
Freddi Goldstein, the mayor’s press secretary laughably tried to explain de Blasio’s sudden change:
“In the heat of battle, our primary focus has been on saving lives, but as soon as the issue was raised, the mayor immediately moved to release the data.
And if you believe that one, I have a bridge in Brooklyn selling for a great price.
