Something that we have suspected for a long time has been confirmed. The death toll from COVID-19 has not resulted in a real spike in deaths this year. In fact, we’ve seen the number of deaths from other causes like heart disease and other medical conditions go down. This is no coincidence. There is a reason for this happening. A study by Johns Hopkins University supports this.
What makes this very strange and extremely suspicious is that not long after it was published on the internet, it was removed. However, most things that go onto the internet are never deleted, you’ve just got to know how to find them…and we did.
According to the study,
When Genevieve Briand, assistant program director of the Applied Economics master’s degree program at Hopkins, 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.
This trend is completely contrary to the pattern observed in all previous years. Interestingly, 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.
