WaEx:Despite being a major city with heavy incoming and outgoing travel (especially to and from New York), Washington, D.C., has to date suffered very little from the coronavirus pandemic.
Yet thanks to the hysteria kicked up by the national media and Democrats, mostly for political purposes, it looks like a lot more people in the nation’s capital have died than ever had to.
D.C. Health Department Director Dr. LaQuandra Nesbitt said this week that, looking at data between Jan. 1 through April 12, deaths in the district were up by 40% from last year. But among the excess deaths, less than half were related to COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.
Instead, people are dying at higher rates from heart attacks, diabetes, strokes, and overdoses, according to WTOP. MORE
