Scientists ‘Baffled’ Due to Biggest Jump in Excess Deaths in 100 Years

Scientists baffled at biggest jump in excess deaths in 100 years

Scientists say they are concerned over the staggering number of excess deaths that has occured since the COVID-19 vaccine rollout.

Over 174,000 deaths were registered in Australia in 2022 – 12 per cent more than was predicted.

This represents one of the largest excess death levels outside of the pandemic 80 years, according to data from the Actuaries Institute.

Thesun.co.uk reports: Karen Cutter, from the Institute’s Covid-19 mortality working group, said the levels are “not within normal levels of fluctuation in non-pandemic times”.

She said the Institute believed that the virus played a role in many of the excess deaths – even those that weren’t directly attributed to Covid.

“Firstly, mortality risk is higher subsequent to an acute Covid infection, and most Australians have now had Covid-19,” she told news.com.au.

Previous research has found anyone who’s had Covid is at risk of dying 18 months after infection.

Scientists from China discovered all those who contract the virus have an increased risk of deadly heart issues including heart failure, stroke, atrial fibrillation, myocardial infarction and heart disease.

Other studies have found the bug increases risk of developing venous thromboembolism (VTE), which is a condition when a blood clot forms in a vein.

Many people couldn’t get healthcare during the pandemic, as many services closed their doors or offered reduced services, which Karen said could have also contributed to the surge in excess deaths.

“People have not accessed medical care when needed, either through inability (in emergency situations) or through fear or lack of opportunity (thus missing routine care earlier in the pandemic),” she said.

There have been rare cases of myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) following the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines in the UK.

Excess deaths in the UK

Australia is not alone in this phenomenon, with other countries like the UK also battling an unprecedented rise in excess mortality.

The UK recorded nearly 40,000 excess deaths in 2022, according to the Office of National Statistics.

The births and deaths figures, for the year ending December 2022, show there were 38,574 deaths in 2022, 10.4 per cent (3642) more than in 2021.

This increase is the biggest jump in excess deaths since the 1918 flu pandemic.
