Did you read how Italy decreased the number of people who actually died OF Covid by 97%? There is a big difference between ‘with’ and ‘of’. I suspect we will see the same in the US.

EDITOR: You must have read the article posted on Like so many others, you must not be aware that is a SATIRE news site. There is nothing truthful about the report that Italy's Ministry of Health decreased the COVID death statistic.  In fact, the death toll number in the post doesn't correspond to how many people have died from the virus. Italy has lost over 132,000 people to this virus.
