I feel a bit lightheaded. Maybe you should drive.
Well it was The Atlantic so I'm sure some lefties saw it, and deemed it "nothing to see here, move along:"

For two separate studies published in May, doctors in California read through several hundred charts of pediatric patients, one by one, to figure out why, exactly, each COVID-positive child had been admitted to the hospital. Did they need treatment for COVID, or was there some other reason for admission, like cancer treatment or a psychiatric episode, and the COVID diagnosis was merely incidental? According to the researchers, 40 to 45 percent of the hospitalizations that they examined were for patients in the latter group.

The authors of the paper out this week took a different tack to answer a similar question, this time for adults. Instead of meticulously looking at why a few hundred patients were admitted to a pair of hospitals, they analyzed the electronic records for nearly 50,000 COVID hospital admissions at the more than 100 VA hospitals across the country. Then they checked to see whether each patient required supplemental oxygen or had a blood oxygen level below 94 percent. (The latter criterion is based on the National Institutes of Health definition of “severe COVID.”) If either of these conditions was met, the authors classified that patient as having moderate to severe disease; otherwise, the case was considered mild or asymptomatic.

The study found that from March 2020 through early January 2021—before vaccination was widespread, and before the Delta variant had arrived—the proportion of patients with mild or asymptomatic disease was 36 percent. From mid-January through the end of June 2021, however, that number rose to 48 percent. In other words, the study suggests that roughly half of all the hospitalized patients showing up on COVID-data dashboards in 2021 may have been admitted for another reason entirely, or had only a mild presentation of disease.

So the covid numbers have been inflated by almost 100% - there you have it. Just like many of us were saying all along. And not a peep out of the lefties who (over) hyped this "pandemic." Deplorables, all of them...

Let's play a little thought experiment game shall we?

We'll make the totally illogical assumption that your story was true and unbiased. Laughable to believe that but this is a thought experiment. Your conclusion, that the hospitalization of COVID patient numbers has been inflated by nearly 100% is true. That means that the REAL number of actual COVID hospitalization numbers is only HALF of what is being reported. Allow me to make the jump to infer that this fact means that roughly half of the COVID DEATHS being reported are false.

That sound fair to you?

Let's continue. Since half of the COVID deaths being reported weren't really from COVID only half of them were true COVID deaths. Since at least 1930 deaths were reported today (9/14/2021 - source https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/ ) we only had 965 real COVID deaths today.

Conclusion: Even giving the OP every misguided assumption as being true the bottom line is that the OP is implying that 965 deaths per day is no big deal. Using the OPs numbers of the 682337 deaths that the US has reported so far only 341,168 are real COVID deaths and that the deaths of nearly 7 times as many Americans as died in the Vietnam War of COVID is no big deal.

And this my dear readers is why I have so much disdain for these right wingers. These same cretins criticize me for posting of the deaths of right wing anti-vaxxers who succumb to this dreaded disease while at the same time demeaning the deaths of those who have died through no fault of their own.

Of course it's BS..........everyone dies now with COVID and never due to heart attacks or cancer.............I just check by BO and it's 92 and I'm neither sick or have covid but I'm sure tired due to another long day

If true you should be questioning why the lie. Cuo bono.

It’s not true though. The observation looks like a product of selection bias given that those most likely to require hospitalization after getting Covid are those with serious underlying medical problems.
