Exclusive: Covid Vaccines Failed to Lower America's Excess Mortality Rates
Plus: New reports out of the U.K. show that deaths are currently higher among the vaccinated than the unvaccinated. Here is a closer look at that data.
There is a possibility that 2021 ends up as worse than 2020 in terms of all-cause excess mortality rates for many nations, regardless of the vaccines. This includes the United States.
One of the most direct metrics for evaluating the effectiveness of Covid response policies, including the overwhelmingly preferred tool of “vaccines,” is the excess mortality rate.
While there were mask mandates and lockdowns in 2020, vaccines were just introduced for some Americans on January 4, 2021.
Therefore, it is the one major new tool for fighting Covid in 2021. It is an excellent proxy variable for assessing the effects of vaccines on excess mortality.
The Centers for Disease Control explains the value of excess mortality rates when evaluating all-cause mortality.
"Estimates of excess deaths can provide information about the burden of mortality potentially related to the COVID-19 pandemic, including deaths that are directly or indirectly attributed to COVID-19."
Given the public health community’s mantra on vaccinations, as well as the vaccine mandates and "passes,” one would expect that they would do a serious dent to the excess mortality rates.
Most nations are well over 50% “fully vaccinated,” and as a telling confession of their (lack of) efficacy, the health officials are already pushing “boosters.”
The CDC's website shows the excess mortality from 2018 to present (but the expected mean is based on 6 years of data, the CDC notes).
What we find from an examination of the evidence provided by the CDC itself is that the vaccines have failed to lower excess mortality rates; particularly, the average percentage of excess mortality in each reporting period year-over-year.
As you can see, starting from January 2021, there was a peak around the time of President Biden's inauguration on January 20, followed by a decline in the weekly excess mortality figures. Then there was a second wave that came with Delta variant.
The average weekly excess mortality rate, expressed as a percentage in 2020: 15.65%. In 2021, that figure has been 16.31%. In other words, slightly higher.
All-cause excess mortality is a more holistic snapshot than focusing merely on “Covid excess mortality.”
This is because it helps us assess if people are dying from the impact of Covid response policies, such as increased suicide rates, missing vital health screenings, and other public health tradeoffs.
New reports out of the United Kingdom, which is more reliable and transparent with their data than the United States, also show that the death rate is currently higher among the vaccinated than the unvaccinated.
