Scottish Excess Deaths reach 29%
And other Covid news
Week 2 of 2023 has seen a staggering amount of deaths in Scotland. 2,020 in fact, which is the highest level for decades. It is higher than any peak during the pandemic which saw peaks of 1,978 deaths in April 2020 and 1,720 deaths in January 2021. At that time, we had death figures on the TV 24/7. Lockdowns were brought in to cope with that amount of death. Heard any outcry about these latest death peaks on TV recently?
450 of the Scottish deaths are above the 5 year average, or 29% higher. And this is provisional data so will be revised upwards as always.
Scottish Unity looked at the data and, due to its volatility, produced an average of Scottish deaths over the Christmas period (weeks 51 - week 2). This Christmas is 14% higher than 2020/21.
Overall, in December there was a 10% increase in deaths and a 15.6% decrease in births.
Travel south to England and Wales and excess deaths in week 1, according to the ONS, are 14.1% higher than usual (1,847 excess deaths). However, they have recently changed how they calculate the five year average and now include 2021 and 2022, even though these were abnormal years. Danny Walker has used the previous way the ONS were calculating the five year average (using 2015-2019 data) and produced a table of excess death percentages.
This corroborates with the Scottish data giving England and Wales an excess death rate of 23.1% in week 1 or 2023. In fact most of 2022 looks pretty terrible.
Europe as a whole (including UK and Israel) isn’t looking great.
This winter has seen a peak almost as high as the 2020/2021 Covid peaks and this is lagged data so likely to be higher.
Fortunately, young people were barely affected by Covid but something is causing excess deaths in these age groups now.
All of the other age groups are also seeing high peaks which is strange after a pandemic.
Could this be, in part due to mRNA vaccines? We don’t know but it is unscientific to not look into it. However, albeit too late, more and more doctors are speaking out.
NHS doctor, Bob Gill said he’s “hearing concerns from reputable voices about damage done by the vaccine” and called for an investigation.
The Australian edition of the Spectator reports that Dr. Richard Ennos, a retired professor of evolutionary biology at Edinburgh University, is the latest eminent academic to call for the immediate withdrawal of mRNA Covid vaccines. He says “glaring safety signals are apparent, indicating harm to the lymph system, the heart and to female reproduction”.
And another sign that the tide is turning is that the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) are trying to shift the blame of vaccine approvals onto government ministers. In a Freedom of Information response, obtained by the Daily Sceptic, the MHRA say that “all the Covid vaccines and therapeutics authorisation decisions were taken by the Licensing Minister and were not delegated”.
Something is up. But we have known that for years now. Will a proper investigation into excess deaths be conducted (including looking at mRNA vaccine harms)? Or as the floodgates start to open, will a new crisis emerge to distract people?
Hopefully these excess deaths will start to disappear but, if not, how long can people continue to ignore them?
