Covid-19 Vaccines May Have Contributed to Excess Deaths, Researchers Suggest

A recent study by researchers from Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam, has raised concerns about the potential link between COVID-19 vaccines and the rise in excess deaths since the onset of the pandemic. The study, published in the BMJ Public Health, analyzed data from 47 Western countries and found that more than three million excess deaths had occurred since 2020 despite the rollout of vaccines and containment measures.

5 Key Points

  1. The study found over three million excess deaths across Europe, the US, and Australia since 2020.
  2. Researchers suggest that Covid-19 vaccines may have contributed to the rise in excess deaths.
  3. The study calls on governments to investigate the underlying causes, including possible vaccine harms.
  4. Side effects linked to the Covid-19 vaccine include cardiovascular diseases, blood clotting, and brain hemorrhage.
  5. Delayed healthcare and socioeconomic upheaval during the pandemic may have also contributed to excess deaths.

Unprecedented Excess Deaths Raise Concerns

The researchers described the excess death figures as “unprecedented” and stated that they “raised serious concerns.” They emphasized that governments should thoroughly investigate the underlying causes, including potential harms associated with Covid-19 vaccines. The study found that there were more than one million excess deaths in 2020 at the height of the pandemic, 1.2 million in 2021, and 800,000 in 2022, even after the implementation of containment measures and vaccine rollouts.

Potential Vaccine-Related Side Effects

The authors of the study noted that while Covid-19 vaccines were intended to protect individuals from morbidity and mortality caused by the virus, suspected both medical professionals and citizens have reported adverse events to various official databases in the Western World. The side effects linked to the Covid-19 vaccine include ischaemic stroke, acute coronary syndrome, brain hemorrhage, cardiovascular diseases, coagulation, hemorrhages, gastrointestinal events, and blood clotting.

Calls for Further Investigation

German researchers have pointed out that the onset of excess mortality in early 2021 coincided with the rollout of Covid-19 vaccines, which the Dutch research team said “warranted further investigation.” However, the experts warned that more recent data regarding side effects has yet to be made available to the public, with countries maintaining their own individual databases of harms that rely on self-reporting by the public and doctors.

Other Potential Contributors to Excess Deaths

While the study suggests a potential link between Covid-19 vaccines and excess deaths, researchers also acknowledged that other factors, such as the impact of containment measures, restricted healthcare, and socioeconomic upheaval during the pandemic, may have contributed to the increased mortality rates. Gordon Wishart, chief medical officer at Check4Cancer and visiting professor of cancer surgery at Anglia Ruskin University, warned that delaying cancer diagnosis due to limited access to healthcare for non-Covid conditions would lead to excess deaths from these conditions.

The Need for Transparency and Comprehensive Investigations

The study by Dutch researchers raises essential questions about the potential role of Covid-19 vaccines in the rise of excess deaths since the pandemic. While further investigation is needed to establish a definitive link, the findings underscore the need for governments and health authorities to closely monitor and transparently report any adverse events associated with the vaccines. Additionally, it is crucial to address the indirect effects of the pandemic, such as delayed healthcare and socioeconomic challenges, to mitigate their impact on mortality rates.

 

Covid-19 Vaccines & Rise in Deaths FAQ

 

What did the study by Dutch researchers find regarding excess deaths since the pandemic?

The study found that there had been more than three million excess deaths across Europe, the US, and Australia since 2020, despite the rollout of vaccines and containment measures.

 

What do the researchers suggest may have contributed to the rise in excess deaths?

The researchers suggest that Covid-19 vaccines may have played a role in the rise of excess deaths, along with the impact of containment measures, restricted healthcare, and socioeconomic upheaval during the pandemic.

 

According to the study, What side effects have been linked to the Covid-19 vaccine?

The side effects linked to the Covid-19 vaccine include ischaemic stroke, acute coronary syndrome, brain hemorrhage, cardiovascular diseases, coagulation, hemorrhages, gastrointestinal events, and blood clotting.

 

What did German researchers observe regarding the onset of excess mortality in the country?

German researchers pointed out that the onset of excess mortality in early 2021 in the country coincided with the rollout of Covid-19 vaccines, which the Dutch research team said warranted further investigation.

 

What did Gordon Wishart, chief medical officer at Check4Cancer, warn about the impact of delaying cancer diagnosis during the pandemic?

Gordon Wishart warned that limited access to healthcare for non-Covid conditions during the lockdown period would lead to delays in the diagnosis and treatment of time-critical conditions such as cancer, leading to excess deaths from these conditions.
