In March 2020 when the C-19 pandemic began, the World Health Organization announced that the death rate for people who contract C-19 is "about 3.4%," while Anthony Fauci said it was "around 1%," and Donald Trump said it was "way under 1%." Oxford University's Center for Evidence-Based Medicine currently estimates that the fatality rate for C-19 is "somewhere between 0.1% and 0.35%," which accords with Trump's estimate of "way under 1%." Likewise, the CDC's current best estimates for the C-19 fatality rate are 0.003% for people aged 0-19 years, 0.02% for people aged 20-49 years, 0.5% for people aged 50-69 years, and 5.4% for people aged 70+ years. Despite the World Health Organization's false statement about this matter and others regarding C-19, Google/YouTube adopted a policy in May 2020 of censoring people who post anything "that contradicts the World Health Organization (WHO) or local health authorities' medical information about Covid-19."
