The WHO Announces “Suspected” Cases of COVID-19 Should Be Written As COVID-19 Deaths (No Virus Test Required)

GMI Reporter, GreenMedInfo

In a stunning disregard for medical and scientific integrity, the WHO posted its new guidelines for determining official deaths from COVID-19 which do not require cases be positively confirmed through virus testing, but only that it is suspected to be a cause of death.

Emergency use ICD codes for COVID-19 disease outbreak

  • The COVID-19 disease outbreak has been declared a public health emergency of international concern.

    • An emergency ICD-10 code of ‘U07.1 COVID-19, virus identified’ is assigned to a disease diagnosis of COVID-19 confirmed by laboratory testing.
    • An emergency ICD-10 code of ‘U07.2 COVID-19, virus not identified’ is assigned to a clinical or epidemiological diagnosis of COVID-19 where laboratory confirmation is inconclusive or not available.
    • Both U07.1 and U07.2 may be used for mortality coding as cause of death
    • In ICD-11, the code for the confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19 is RA01.0 and the code for the clinical diagnosis (suspected or probable) of COVID-19 is RA01.1.

    The guidelines above specifically show that under it’s new emergency ICD-10 code “U07. COVID-19, virus not identified,” the case will be “used for mortality coding as cause of death” even where “laboratory confirmation is inconclusive or not available.”

    This means that the world’s most powerful health organization, and presumably most credible, is directing the world’s medical insitutions to define as COVID-19 deaths those which are merely suspected and have no basis in actual virological evidence nor validation.

    This is consistent with the US government’s health statistics agency new guidelines on COVID-19 deaths, which we reported on recently:  The US Gov. Health Statistics Agency Directs Hospitals to Confirm Suspected COVID-19 Deaths As Confirmed.
