Obviously, the coronavirus story changes by the moment. But here is a snapshot in time of coronavirus deaths, as reported by CDC and in news reports.
The majority of U.S. deaths to date (31 of 40) have occurred among the elderly, sick in Washington State nursing homes or long term care facilities.
A majority of the Washington State deaths (27 of 31) occurred in King County.
A majority of the King County deaths in Washington State (22 of 31) occurred at the same elderly nursing facility in Kirkland. This large cluster in one facility is under investigation.
There have also been three deaths in Snohomish County, and one in Grant County (Washington State).
There have been four deaths among the elderly in California.
There have been two deaths among the elderly in Florida.
Three deaths have been reported among elderly, sick men in New Jersey, South Dakota, and Georgia.
The average age of U.S. coronavirus fatalities is 80, according to the U.S. Surgeon General.
Pubic health officials have not released the exact ages of some coronavirus fatalities. But all are above age 50. No babies, children, or youths in the U.S. have been reported to have died from coronavirus, so far.
CDC reports that the vast majority of people who get coronavirus have mild symptoms or no symptoms at all, and almost everyone infected with coronavirus will recover.
Consult CDC.gov for the latest government information on coronavirus.

Thank you for your accurate and concise reporting. You have always been a breath of fresh air!
vincent DIGIAN says
What is the average age of an unborn human that dies from the various methods abortion procedures entail?
Died. The word is "died".
Reading the WHO predictions for the US are 100% divergent from where the statistics on this article will lead the US.
WHO says 3026+ people will die daily from now til the end of the year: 700,000-1.5 million.
Time will tell. Wash your hands.
John wojo says
Sharyl Attkinson deserves the MEDal of freedom award for her reporting.
Despite massive govt intrusion she has persisted and continues to do what others refuse to do in the world of media.
People like Sharyl protect our country and it’s peoples rights
Casey Plunkett says
Thank your for objective reporting. A voice of reason out of the sea of insanity. The reckless measures that government is mandating/recommending will likely contract GDP by 10% the next 30 days. Instead, the Government should focus its efforts almost exclusively on protecting those most at risk.
d simpson says
Almost like it is designed to remove the truly useless eaters, those who no longer pay taxes.
Furthermore, WA location in the US is an interesting place for this to explode like that. You'd think it would be where there was a higher population of Chinese, like SF, or LA.
Thomas Kur says
Remember, some day YOU also will be a "useless eater." Have some respect for those who have made it this far through their (probably) difficult lives!
Robert martin Gibbs says
I"m 85 and I paid 18% of my income last year. My guess would be that many of the elderly paid their taxes and still are. How about you?
Nice 😃 Here's to the 100 club. Live well Robert!
There are STACKS of Chinese people in Seattle....
Phillip Whitener says
Maybe the nurses or Doctors.
The highest concentration of US deaths was in Washington State. Sizable Chinese presence all along the US west coast. With the modern free travel in the US, it wouldn't take long to spread thoughout the country.
My "theory" is the bug was released accidently from the Chinese military lab in Wuhan (explaining the delay in notification to WHO). Why would they have developed such a bug? They have aprox 1.3 Billion people to maintain, feed, house, etc. As their population continues to explode, they will run out of resources, food, land etc. What better group to "weed out" than the sick, elderly and less productive citizens (remember their recent Social Merit Plan?). Remove those that ACTUALLY remember their government's past history. Mao killed Millions of citizens who had the education and intelligence to recognize the faults and dangers of Communism. The young were "reeducated". Who controls the present, controls the past. Who controls the past, controls the future.
It could be even darker. Intentionally released as a precursor to their planned world dominance. Why release it in their own country? Deniability. Who would dare acuse them of doing such a thing? They could have a vaccine for all we know. Their Navy is cranking out ship after ship funded by past US trade profits. They have built artificial "islands" in deputed areas of the China Sea to dock and supply their new Navy. The Cyber branch of their military is constantly hacking our government and corporate networks to steal secrets and intellectual property. Trump screwed them with tariffs and the new trade deal, posing an immediate threat to their economy. Their space program (and missile technology) is rapidly advancing thanks to Clinton's buddies at Doral Aerospace selling them multi-stage rocket technology in the 90's. I smell a huge donation to the Clinton Foundation. They donate hugh money to US Universities to influence the "reeducation" of the Millenial Generation. Possible "bribing" of US officials to gain influence in our government....where's Hunter?
All sound like war preparations to me. If not, maybe I should write a fiction novel.
Sorry, that should be Loral Aerospace, not Doral....I had a "Biden" moment.
Sorry, that should have been "Loral" Aerospace, not "Doral". Had a Biden moment.
Just another manufactured Crises to control population by emotion,using panic & fear .Think about that for a moment.we are being conditioned every week with mini crises of doom & gloom,by the MSM,Democrat Politicians.Anymore I stop watching the brain-washing news lies,about Subversion of everything.I don`t trust the W.H.O,U.N. or the C.D.C ask yourself why now is all this happening.You know U.N. Agenda 21, is near,mass Depopulation by two thirds say the Globalists.there`s also U.N. Agenda 2030 & 2050.Corona Virus is a Test,along with the Phony Short selling Stock market,Saudi Oil price drop,more panic & fear. The Deep State,Globalist Left want us Divided,Censored & Silenced. Guess what I just take my high dose Vitamin C,D & Zinc not afraid to go anywhere,I mean this is a Pneumonia Virus which Vitamin C protects lung tissue. (Orthomolecular.org )
You may want to verify that death in Grant County, WA. There are conflicting reports.
Love your work.
Proves that: the press is completely irresponsible and will deliberately create a panic to generate sales/viewership; the sheeple can be lead like, well, sheep, to the abattoir and politicians will manipulate any crisis for their gain. It is sad that our old folk are dying but the elderly have poor immune systems; a natural consequence of aging. It is reasonable to isolate old folk and people with compromised immune systems. It is reasonable to remind people to take simple precautions like hand washing. It is irresponsible to create a panic mode abut a viral syndrome less fatal then influenza. .
As a comparison, the 1918-1919 Spanish Flu infected an estimated 27% of the world's population and about 50M dies (high end estimate). The world population at that time was about 1.9B so about 500M were infected and that is a mortality rate of about 10%. That, folks, is a pandemic/epidemic to be afraid of.
There needs to be a. Law against drug advertising in the media like most other countries. Then maybe we would get some real reporting in mainstream media. Still if you watch "dirty money" the Netflix show series the big biz and government corruption is insane.
Also need to insert that most of these patients have do not resuscitate orders. They are late stage chronically ill and have signed an advanced directive that prohibits any lifesaving measures be taken to prolong their life

There was a followup program that mentioned that Congress refused to provide liability protection for industrial masks to be used in in this medical emergency. The P100
industrial filters are made to perform at far higher standard than the normal N95 masks as documented in numerous, peer reviewed studies.

Where are the MSM interviews of grieving relatives? You'd think there would be mileage there.
Karen McCullough says
Any data regarding races of fatal cases? Looking at a world map of cases, it seems the African continent is only slightly impacted.
A good source of info. You might also consider signing up for updates from Johns Hopkins with the link provided in this LinkedIn post:
Recover could mean permanent lung damage. Please also investigate that. Thank you for all you do.
Sharyl, you should know that there was a death in Kansas. The man had been a resident of a nursing home run by the same people that own the one in Washington State that had all the deaths. https://www.kansascity.com/news/local/article241163111.html?fbclid=IwAR2f4CpBhUcpNWPH18mrQ_ii4NMAUSiHkQQVoegMNheuuhgrRBuG1Mf2Yh0
Sheryl, thank you for your diligent, honest reporting! I'm seeing persistent reports that one of the WA state deaths was a man in his 40s. He had underlying respiratory health issues, and "40s" could mean 49, but he is an anomaly to your graph.
Doug Dibley says
Sorry, I have now added the latest report on this (forgot to do it the first time!).
Poker Online Bengkulu says
Really informative, looking forward to visiting again. http://126.96.36.199/
Sheryl, is there any way to determine the ethnicity of the deceased?
Thank you for who you are and what you do.
Those deaths e.g. last year would had been recorded as flu related, or unspecified virus related but since now they have a test to find a virus that they could not find before those related and unspecified became specific, is very simple. The virus and the disease is not something new, something that just appear NOW and was not existed BEFORE. As per WHO estimates there are more than 100million virus related RTI every year with UN-specified cause/virus. And that is a FACT, now they SEE one that prior they could not SEE, is very very simple and there is not any real virus pandemic. Also 5% to 30% of RTI are related to the Coronavirus family (mostly with unknown members) and with most of them in fragile and elderly people https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article... & https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3185465/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3185465/ Also something very important is to CHECK retrospectively if that virus (by using the new identification test) was circulating and was related to any similar disease previous years (with frozen samples) e.g. as per that procedure for a previous novel coronavirus https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3358201/pdf/10-1381_finalL.pdf .... I haven't find any such study the last 3 months and that tells me that they will not check and they will not retrospectively check for the existence of that NOVEL strain because their pandemic will collapse
I bet we wait a month nothing happens then the media comes out with a statement that the Wuhan virus is no longer a threat. I had to sign a telework agreement authorizing the state occupational hazard agency access to my home with only 48 hour notice or immediately if an emergency. Is that to check on my fire extinguisher? What emergency? Not happy.
