    The Freedom Foundation has discovered an unnerving trend in the COVID-19 death tolls coming out of Washington state. Washington State Department of Health officials confirmed on Thursday that they've been reporting the deaths of all individuals who tested positive for COVID-19, even if the victims died from other causes, such as gunshot wounds.

    “We don’t always know the cause of death for a death when it is first reported on our dashboard," DOH health statistics manager Katie Hutchinson said in a briefing. "That is true. Over the course of the outbreak, we have been monitoring and recording the causes of death as we know it. We currently do have some deaths that are being reported that are clearly from other causes. We have about five deaths — less than five deaths — that we know of that are related to obvious other causes. In this case, they are from gunshot wounds.”
