FEO NEWS JAN. 4, 2020 - Nov. 20, 2021:
These are Updated and Archived news items, many of them outside of this website.
As of 2021, I extended this color chart to reflect the full CDC mortality count since the U.S. Patient Zero on Jan. 4.*
People will talk and write about the year 2020, 2021, and COVID-19 for a long time. I hope this color-coded chart will be helpful.
(1) Deaths with confirmed or presumed COVID-19, coded to ICD–10 code U07.1
0-1,000 | 1,001-3,000 | 3,001-5,000 | 5,001-7,000 |
So! How well are you doing so far?

As of May 24, 2021, the CDC has yet again decided that no deaths in the U.S. happened in the week of Jan. 4. This following news that the long labeled "Conspiracy Theory Hoax" of COVID-19 originating in a Wuhan, China lab is still the only theory that has any supporting evidence behind it. Further, there was never any science research that conclusively proved otherwise. In fact, as of this writing, there is no evidence to substantiate a counter claim, according to WSJ and MIT.*
"The WHO-led team that visited Wuhan concluded in a joint report with Chinese experts in March that the virus most likely spread from bats to humans via another animal, and that a laboratory leak was "extremely unlikely."
However, team members said they didn't view raw data or original lab, safety and other records. On the same day the report came out, WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the team hadn't adequately examined the lab leak hypothesis, and called for a fuller probe of the idea."
As of July 3, 2021, the CDC has decided that the death of Patient 0 in the U.S.A. DID NOT occur on Jan. 4, but one week later on Jan. 11, seven days before China reported their first COVID-19 death on Jan. 18.
As of May 18, 2021, the CDC decided that the death of Patient 0 in the U.S.A. DID occur on Jan. 4, thirteen days before China reported their first COVID-19 death on Jan. 18.
As of April 3, 2021, the CDC decided that Patient 0 in the U.S.A. DID NOT occur on Jan. 4, but two weeks later in the week of Jan. 18 with three separate Patient Zeros.
As of Dec. 15, 2020
Mutiple media sources report that the first COVID-19 death did not occur in the U.S. until February 3, 2020, but as of April 2021, CDC maintains that C-19 deaths occurred in January.
NYT reports that the first death by COVID-19 in China happened on Jan. 11, 2020. CDC reports three deaths in the U.S. by Jan. 18, 2020. NYT maintains that the first death in the U.S. did not happen until Feb. 29, 2020 - Leap Year day. NYT also maintains that, due to the inherent incompetence of the Chinese Government, precautions, cautions, and other measures to limit the spread of COVID-19 were intentionally bungled by the Chinese bureacracy.
The Center For Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP) of the University of Minnesota, confirms the first two U.S. COVID-19 deaths on Feb. 6 in Santa Clara County, California.
This is not meant to be either a damning or glib statement regarding conflicting news from various sources. What's important to remember is that no one source has all the answers and believing otherwise is a matter of faith. The spread of such faith in single sources for news leads to misinformation.
Throughout the 17 months of doing this graph, and the 10 months of making it public here, I arbitrarily locked the updates whenever I felt a curious change took place. Please note that my curiousity factor in archiving these frozen moments is due to my personal filter and so empirical.
