It takes extra time to code COVID-19 deaths. While 80% of deaths are electronically processed and coded by NCHS within minutes, most deaths from COVID-19 must be coded by a person, which takes an average of 7 days.
Oh, so the "other guys" are reporting unofficial results. And other groups can get data faster than the Federal department with an $8B budget and responsible for American health and Disease Control.....ya thats you guys, the CDC. Shameful.
