John Hopkins University published an article that showed that despite the hoopla about Covid 19 deaths, the total death toll in the US did not actually increase at all. This points to misclassification of deaths. That means deaths that were heart disease in 2019 became Covid 19 in 2020. And that is exactly what the data points to…
According to new data, the U.S. currently ranks first in total COVID-19 cases, new cases per day and deaths. Genevieve Briand, assistant program director of the Applied Economics master’s degree program at Hopkins, critically analyzed the effect of COVID-19 on U.S. deaths using data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in her webinar titled “COVID-19 Deaths: A Look at U.S. Data.”
From mid-March to mid-September, U.S. total deaths have reached 1.7 million, of which 200,000, or 12% of total deaths, are COVID-19-related. Instead of looking directly at COVID-19 deaths, Briand focused on total deaths per age group and per cause of death in the U.S. and used this information to shed light on the effects of COVID-19.
12% of total deaths from a new disease, that would be a pandemic. But only if there are increased deaths. Read on for the facts…
She explained that the significance of COVID-19 on U.S. deaths can be fully understood only through comparison to the number of total deaths in the United States.
That means, if more people didn’t die, then there is not a pandemic. But we are being led to believe that more people are dying. Anyone who is told that 200,000 covid 19 related deaths occurred in the US naturally believes these deaths happened due to covid 19. And by implication, these are deaths that would not otherwise have happened.
And of course, loads of extra old people will have died, right? Wrong.
After retrieving data on the CDC website, Briand compiled a graph representing percentages of total deaths per age category from early February to early September, which includes the period from before COVID-19 was detected in the U.S. to after infection rates soared.
Surprisingly, the deaths of older people stayed the same before and after COVID-19. Since COVID-19 mainly affects the elderly, experts expected an increase in the percentage of deaths in older age groups. However, this increase is not seen from the CDC data. In fact, the percentages of deaths among all age groups remain relatively the same.
So here is the first suspicious red flag: no increase in deaths in older age groups as a percentage of deaths. But we were told that Covid 19 is literally decimating people over 65.
“The reason we have a higher number of reported COVID-19 deaths among older individuals than younger individuals is simply because every day in the U.S. older individuals die in higher numbers than younger individuals,” Briand said.
In other words, older people are more likely to die. So more older people are dying anyway. So more deaths are being classified as Covid 19, hence the majority are old.
And here is the big shock:
Briand also noted that 50,000 to 70,000 deaths are seen both before and after COVID-19, indicating that this number of deaths was normal long before COVID-19 emerged. Therefore, according to Briand, not only has COVID-19 had no effect on the percentage of deaths of older people, but it has also not increased the total number of deaths.
These data analyses suggest that in contrast to most people’s assumptions, the number of deaths by COVID-19 is not alarming. In fact, it has relatively no effect on deaths in the United States.
What? Wait. Covid 19 had no effect on deaths? How can that be? We are told of the numbers of dead from Covid daily. How could this dreadful pandemic not be causing extra deaths?
Analysis of deaths per cause in 2018 revealed that the pattern of seasonal increase in the total number of deaths is a result of the rise in deaths by all causes, with the top three being heart disease, respiratory diseases, influenza and pneumonia…..
When Briand looked at the 2020 data during that seasonal period, COVID-19-related deaths exceeded deaths from heart diseases. This was highly unusual since heart disease has always prevailed as the leading cause of deaths. However, when taking a closer look at the death numbers, she noted something strange. As Briand compared the number of deaths per cause during that period in 2020 to 2018, she noticed that instead of the expected drastic increase across all causes, there was a significant decrease in deaths due to heart disease. Even more surprising…, this sudden decline in deaths is observed for all other causes.
Second red flag: Decline in deaths from other causes.
And guess what, the decline in deaths from other causes just happened to match the death toll for Covid 19. What a co-incidence.
This trend is completely contrary to the pattern observed in all previous years. Interestingly, as depicted in the table below, the total decrease in deaths by other causes almost exactly equals the increase in deaths by COVID-19. This suggests, according to Briand, that the COVID-19 death toll is misleading. Briand believes that deaths due to heart diseases, respiratory diseases, influenza and pneumonia may instead be recategorized as being due to COVID-19.
The CDC classified all deaths that are related to COVID-19 simply as COVID-19 deaths. Even patients dying from other underlying diseases but are infected with COVID-19 count as COVID-19 deaths. This is likely the main explanation as to why COVID-19 deaths drastically increased while deaths by all other diseases experienced a significant decrease.
“All of this points to no evidence that COVID-19 created any excess deaths. Total death numbers are not above normal death numbers. We found no evidence to the contrary,” Briand concluded.
We are being told that so many people are dying from a deadly pandemic. But there is no such evidence. People are dying with covid 19. That means they died within 28 days of the notoriously inaccurate PCR test.
But people are not dying OF Covid 19, as evidenced by the fact that no extra deaths have occurred.
This is confirmed by the decline in deaths by other causes which matches the deaths with Covid 19.
This entire hysteria is fuelled by misclassification of deaths.
After John Hopkins University published the paper quoted above, they then retracted it, as they felt it could be misused. In other words, they didn’t want to bother people with the facts. It can still be found in archive.
