Excess Mortality: Thousands More Than Usual Are Dying – But Not From COVID


The term excess mortality refers to the number of deaths from all causes during any given period of a crisis or epidemic – above and beyond what we would have expected to see under ‘normal’ conditions.

During the so-called ‘global pandemic,’ it is important to look at the number of total deaths which have happened during the COVID-19 pandemic compared to the year-on-year number of deaths expected had the pandemic not occurred, and then try and ascertain what could be the true source of the excess mortality in that timeframe.

Excess mortality is regarded as a more comprehensive picture of the total impact of a pandemic than simply the number of “COVID deaths” attributed by public health officials. It has now been proven beyond any doubt that the official ‘COVID death count’ has been wildly over-exaggerated due to new ‘state of emergency’ relaxed administrative protocols which allowed for COVID to be deemed the cause of death even when it was purely incidental and where the person had no serious symptoms. These inflated numbers have been exacerbated by the widespread fraudulent use of the non-diagnostic PCR test used drive-up the number of cases and “death with COVID.”

But beyond all this, it is crucial to now look at the most recent spike in excess mortality and ask what is driving it.

As it turns out, this latest surge in non-COVID deaths is a direct result of the reactionary pandemic policies, driven by mass-panic in the mainstream media and by draconian measures put into place by government and medical institutions.

The Telegraph reports…

While focus remains firmly fixed on Covid-19, a second health crisis is quietly emerging in Britain. Since the beginning of July, there have been thousands of excess deaths that were not caused by coronavirus.

According to health experts, this is highly unusual for the summer. Although excess deaths are expected during the winter months, when cold weather and seasonal infections combine to place pressure on the NHS, summer generally sees a lull.

This year is a worrying outlier.

According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS), since July 2 there have been 9,619 excess deaths in England and Wales, of which 48 per cent (4,635) were not caused by Covid-19.

So if all these extra people are not dying from coronavirus, what is killing them?

Data from Public Health England (PHE) shows that during that period there were 2,103 extra death registrations with ischemic heart disease, 1,552 with heart failure, as well as an extra 760 deaths with cerebrovascular diseases such as stroke and aneurysm and 3,915 with other circulatory diseases.

Acute and chronic respiratory infections were also up with 3,416 more mentions on death certificates than expected since the start of July, while there have been 1,234 extra urinary system disease deaths, 324 with cirrhosis and liver disease and 1,905 with diabetes.

Alarmingly, many of these conditions saw the biggest drops in diagnosis in 2020, as the NHS struggled to cope with the pandemic.

A report released last week by the Government detailing the direct and indirect health impacts of the pandemic reported that there were an estimated 23 million fewer GP consultations – both in-person and online, in 2020 compared with 2019.

Diagnosis of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) fell by 51 per cent, atrial fibrillation 26 per cent, heart failure 20 per cent, diabetes 19 per cent, coronary heart disease, 17 per cent and stroke and transient ischemic attack by 16 per cent.

Struggling to access the NHS

Since the start of the pandemic, charities and health bodies have warned that people were struggling to access care as the NHS switched to fighting the pandemic.

Now, 18 months of delayed treatments may be starting to take their toll.

Dr Charlotte Summers, an intensive care consultant from Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge, told a Royal Society of Medicine (RSM) event this week that patients were arriving at A&E with serious conditions that had worsened during the pandemic.

“There is an increase in non-Covid emergencies that are arriving at the front doors of hospitals from all the delays the pandemic has created already. Things like people presenting later with tumours, and therefore having bowel perforations and aneurysms and lots of other things that were delayed,” she said…
