Why not wait until the cause of death is known before throwing out “the number killed by covid”? Please?

Conn. Governor Ned Lamont knowingly misled everyone stating the virus killed a six week old. And for what end? Oh yes, he has one. An artificially elevated number does nothing to promote confidence and security. Does it?

So let’s all agree to help one another by speaking only the truth to each other respectfully, clearly, as if we were all American. Sound good?
