Excess Deaths Show Coronavirus Deaths Are Undercounted

Dead bodies do not lie.

Have more people been dying than normal at this time of year or not? It is really that simple. Excess all-cause mortality data, not faulty tests with small samples and high false negative and false positive rates, is the best way to discern the true impact of the coronavirus.

Washington Post:

“In the early weeks of the coronavirus epidemic, the United States recorded an estimated 15,400 excess deaths, nearly two times as many as were publicly attributed to covid-19 at the time, according to an analysis of federal data conducted for The Washington Post by a research team led by the Yale School of Public Health.

The excess deaths — the number beyond what would normally be expected for that time of year — occurred during March and through April 4, a time when 8,128 coronavirus deaths were reported.

The excess deaths are not necessarily attributable directly to covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. They could include people who died because of the epidemic but not from the disease, such as those who were afraid to seek medical treatment for unrelated illnesses, as well as some number of deaths that are part of the ordinary variation in the death rate. The count is also affected by increases or decreases in other categories of deaths, such as suicides, homicides and motor vehicle accidents. …”

ABC News:

“Emergency calls for cardiac arrest began to climb in mid-February, in close-knit neighborhoods of Brooklyn and Queens, some of the same local areas that would soon form the “epicenter of the epicenter” of America’s coronavirus pandemic.

“I’ve never seen anything like this,” New York City Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Chief Lillian Bonsignore told ABC. “It was astounding. We went from normal to wartime EMS in a week. And then it was just explosive and it continued.”

For nearly three weeks, she said, calls escalated exponentially, particularly cardiac arrest emergencies.

“We went from about 70 or 80 [cardiac arrests] a day which is what we normally do, to almost five times the amount,” Bonsignore said. “I really was very surprised. I’ve never experienced a global pandemic.” …

He said that the inflammatory response from the virus is so severe to the heart that there were reports of “seeing what looked like a classic heart attack.” A majority of heart attacks are associated with clogged arteries, but Singh’s team was surprised to find that in these patients “their arteries were actually normal.”

Dr. Siyab Panhwar, cardiology fellow at Tulane Medical Center, also warned that it was “very possible” that blood clotting triggered by the coronavirus could be to blame and “causing more cardiac arrests.”

As the coronavirus spread, Panhwar was brought in as a cardiology consult for COVID-19 patients and said he has seen the same patterns playing out as found around the world: an unexpected prevalence of blood clotting, sometimes followed by sudden events like cardiac arrest. …”

It is even worse than it looks because the lockdown has decreased mortality for many other normal causes of death: traffic accidents, mass shootings, homicides, etc.

Dozens of states didn’t see a huge spike in mortality in late March/early April and even saw a slight decrease in all-cause mortality. This is because there wasn’t a large scale outbreak at the time in those states. Similarly, the same pattern shows up in in England in London vs. the Southwest. It can also be seen in Italy where northern Italy had a much larger outbreak than southern Italy.

The virus is also killing people in other ways through heart attacks, kidney damage and strokes which are still barely understood and which lead to coronavirus deaths being attributed to other causes. It is not a straight up respiratory disease. It attacks multiple organs in the body.

Note: The massive surge in heart attacks caused by inflammation and blood clots from the virus is why ambulances were swarming around New York City. Presumably, the flu causes cardiac arrest though. In your normal flu season, it is common to be taken to the hospital in an ambulance.

    • Judy, I appreciate your info but many here will not. Despite Covid-19 consisting of what appears to be a standard flu-like virus (hence Corona label) along with MERS, SARS, and HIV attached and God knows what else – something nature does not do – they ignore the obvious. Everything is a conspiracy theory. They either go along to get along or their fear of stepping outside the box is simply too much of a burden to bear. The real problem is that they are cowards and cannot face the implications of things not being organic. Even with voting, they explain away the betrayals as simple payoffs or moral corruption. It’s a control mechanism and our controllers don’t even have to do much for we police ourselves and shame ourselves into believing all the lies.

      Government does not serve the people and never will. We got a measly $1,200 when – behind the scenes – they bailed out the banks AGAIN! Nothing will be done.

      I am starting to believe our reality is some form of purgatory. Certainly not heaven and not yet hell.

    • Conspiracy theory nonsense. The US authorities are not THAT evil or reckless. That theory is a last ditch effort, if so where was the deep state demonization campaign against China for the past decade? I don’t remember much, they did demonize Putin, so why didn’t they unleash this in Moscow? Nope this is an accident, either from close contact with animals, or an accident at the lab due to typical Chinese carelessness. Another thing not mentioned is it’s routine for farmers to go into caves and dig bat guano out for fertilizer, this is another natural possible route of infection although the fact this occurred not in Yunnan with Karst topography where the bats live but right next to their virus lab makes the lab accident theory quite possible. If Ebola broke out in Atlanta who in their right mind would take a look at the CDC lab there first?

  1. The strokes thing I what makes me think, even more strongly, it’s biological warfare made in a lab. I saw that come across my news screen last week while the news-wonks were talking about something else, saying several people had covid related strokes because they’re blood was clotting, one had died, and all three were young-ish in age to be having strokes.

    What kind of virus makes the blood clot?

    I update myself at lunch-time so I’ll know what’s going on, and that was particularly creepy. It’s as if they’re letting us know this is an abnormal thing unleashed on us, didn’t occur in nature like other pandemics. And that affects it’s fading away factor, which otherwise would occur within a few years if this is not bio-warfare.

    • Buying anything from a Chinese company is like dealing with the Ferengi on Star Trek. They don’t care about quality, all they want to do is get your money and run.

  2. While I generally agree with the need for lockdowns, I also feel the need to be even handed and not hysterical about the opinions of people who are against the lockdowns. Sometimes, imbedded in the story, are gems that indicate that the lockdown is (potentially) doing more harm than good. For instance, in the article you posted here:

    “The excess deaths are not necessarily attributable directly to covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. They could include people who died because of the epidemic but not from the disease, such as those who were afraid to seek medical treatment for unrelated illnesses, as well as some number of deaths that are part of the ordinary variation in the death rate.”

    If hospitals were not seen as dangerous places to be, some of these deaths might have been prevented by people seeking treatment instead of forgoing it.

  3. The incontrovertible math of excess all-cause mortality will not change the little minds of the “economics uber alles” pinheads here.

    I’m losing respect for you, HW. Putting up with the nonstop abuse from commenters turns you into a punching bag. That makes you look pathetic and sad, which will turn off some supporters. Enough is enough. If they aren’t patrons of yours, banish the saboteurs of your site and reputation.

    • I addressed this a few days ago.

      The CDC estimated that 61,000 people died in the record 2017/2018 flu season. The flu truthers and conspiracy theorists have until that number is reached to continue to make their case.

      • That “number” doesn’t mean anything except for the juvenile game being payed here. Apparently we now trust all the “numbers” being doled out by the state’s officials and associated experts. How do you know that the number of flu deaths aren’t being under reported? Maybe it’s a record flu season this year? Maybe the new bug is simply more lethal for those with crap immune systems and underlying pathologies? You have no idea one way or the other. Leftism (Judaism) is the root issue no doubt, but tyrannical lock downs of a free people is not the solution in any case.

        • Interesting.

          For the past two months, the flu truthers have held up as gospel the CDC estimates of annual flu season deaths to argue that coronavirus is “just the flu,” but now that confirmed deaths from coronavirus (read: not an estimate) is already barreling past the record 2017/2018 flu season in which 61,000 people died it is suddenly no longer reliable and cannot be trusted.

          • Many of us have been saying over and over again, it’s NOT just the flu.“ But there’s something else going on that you are not addressing, that’s what angering so many of us. It’s not the medical diagnosis – it IS a bio- engineered virus.

            But it’s more- it’s also the political/economic attendant issues. And don’t jump to some stupid conclusion that we are more concerned about our stock portfolios then we are about the disease. I’m a middle-class person. I’m concerned that my neighbors, church members, colleagues are losing their jobs, and will not get them back! That’s what’s not being addressed.

          • NPC and John’s comments are proof of what I wrote. They couldn’t help themselves; they couldn’t wait to continue shitting on you. Even though I just wrote about how people are so disrespectful towards you, they had to pile on, which just shows how right my comments were. This is turning into a really messed-up situation.

        • Ooh, yeah, I love watchin’ you move those goalposts, baby!

          The official numbers also show that Whites will soon be a minority in this country if nothing is done. In fact, the media gloats about it openly from time to time. Luckily, though, those numbers are fake too, and we’ll have a White supermajority forever! Yay! We’re saved!

    • The idiots are the ones looking pathetic. Letting people have their say is an honorable thing to do. Censorship is weakness. Flat-Earthers simply have to be laughed at.

      • Essentially, the same things are being repeatedly said, and the vitriol level is exponentially growing. How is that anything but an anchor around the comments section? How does this situation help anyone? Websites aren’t democracies. No one is owed space on someone else’s blog. People can have their say when they run their own sites.

  4. I still haven’t heard anything about funeral homes, medical examiners and crematoriums reporting an unusual increase in death rates. I’m not saying this is all a hoax – Marcus Cicero’s description of what happened to him certainly sounded real – but it’s being hyped way out of proportion.

  5. The disease mimics malaria down to a T. Only malaria is a DNA based infection and this is RNA. Anyone who’s been in a malarial zone knows how similar they are.

    Also, I’d like to know if they think Cheltenham Races and the Livsepool v ATHLETICO matches wee vectors for transmission. No one has dared to investigate.

    • Malaria is a protozoa that bursts your blood cells in cycles every few days, leading to periodic recurrent fevers and chills with intermediary periods of wellness. Absolutely nothing like this virus that targets the ACE2 receptor in various organs with it’s prime mode of death being severe acute respiratory syndrome.

  6. I just received a letter from the President informing me that a Covid19 compensation check in the amount of $1200 has been electronically deposited into my bank account. Too bad “Silver” isn’t eligible to receive anything, because there’s a warrant out for that nigger’s arrest. Something to do with same-sex partner domestic abuse and refusing to pay child support for his adopted nigglets.

  7. Mortality : observed case – fatality ratio in the USA with 965,785 cases and 54,881 deaths is 5.7% ( John Hopkins University )

  8. Where are the bodies? Why are nurses making slut videos on tik-tok during a pandemic? Does anyone know one person directly who has gotten this disease?

      • Astro-turfed? The videos are being posted on Tik-Tok, Twitter, and Facebook etc. by the hero nurses themselves. By the way, where’s that empty 1,000 bed hospital ship headed? Georgia maybe?

  9. Have you seen the wuflu toes?
    In some ppl wuflu causes a strange rash on their toes.
    Seems wuflu is particularly damaging to anyone wi micro-vascular damage, like diabetics.

  10. We should start calling this website, Corona Virus Dissent. Every day we have the writers spreading panic and hoaxery about a flu like disease. Instead of admitting they were wrong, they continue to push it everyday and insult Nationalists and Populists who are upset at the force memed changed coming our way. The implementation of the AI surveillance state, forced immunity certificates to go outside, combined with Gill Bates micro-tattoos and injectable microchips in his mystery syringe of doom. They are now saying ILLEGALLY, that you have no constitutional right. In order to suspend the constitution you need to declare martial law, emergency legislation doesn’t count because all law need to be constitutional and since martial law was not declared, they are de facto unconstitutional laws. We are close to sitting at 50% unemployment and they are still promoting this idiotic flu hoax. Corona, although separate from the flu has a similar or lower death rate, it does spread quicker though. They are fudging the numbers claiming every dying is dying of Corona. Why? Because the Technocrats white papers say we are behind the curve on the institution of a new Technocratic Oligarichal Dictatorship, with mass surveillance and top down control. They are using the Corona lockdown to push for their technocracy. This website doesn’t get it, instead it spreads retard tier MSNBC hoaxery that even MSNBC is now backing away from. Because its practically over. Now the question remains, are you going to let these entitle twats destroy everything or are you going to protest against the technocratic takeover?!?

    • It’ll lap the global dead for Malaria. Easily.

      The main thing being that the humans are now the mosquitos.

  11. No, people are staying away from hospitals because they’ve been infected with fear porn and are dying because they’re not going to get help when they need it. Meanwhile we have dancing nurses.
