Investigating Rise in Excess Deaths

June 30, 2024


  • One insurance company executive estimated that death rates are currently up 40 percent over what they were pre-pandemic.

Insurance Companies Saw A 40% Increase In Excess Mortality in Their Group Life Policies in 2021

The increase is so great since 2021 according to Insurance Company Executives that it is "off the charts."

Life Insurance CEO Scott Davidson was the first to report the increase in January 2022 that death rates among working-aged people between the ages of 18 and 64 were “up 40 percent over what they were pre-pandemic.”

Davidson compared a 10 percent rise in deaths to a once-in-200-year flood but a 40 percent rise is “off the charts.”

Davidson also mentioned that the bulk of these excess deaths among the 18 to 64 age group in 2021 were non-COVID deaths.

Society of Actuaries Research Report Shows Increase in Excess Deaths

The Society of Actuaries Research Institute report regarding 2020-2021 excess deaths in the U.S. general population compares aggregate mortality during the COVID-19 pandemic to pre-pandemic expectations and does not address or consider vaccine status. The research does not validate any claims made that suggest a causal relationship between COVID-19 vaccines and mortality.

The report's data shows a remarkable increase in the deaths of younger Americans in recent years since the Pandemic.

Former BlackRock Manager Calls for Investigation

Edward Dowd was a Wall Street executive working as a growth portfolio manager for BlackRock. Utilizing his skills in recognizing fraud and interpreting statistics, he started compiling and analyzing data on injury and death associated with the COVID-19 genetic vaccines.

“Every regulator, every health authority, every government should be screaming from the top of their lungs: ‘This is a problem. This is a national [and] global crisis. We should look into it.’ But there’s silence on it, and I believe they’re silent because they know the answer.”

“We applied what we did in finance to what we’re seeing in the populations across the globe in disability. So, we’re just measuring using our statistical tools to figure out when trends change. We saw excess death trend up in ‘21 and ‘22 and ‘23, and disabilities just really take off in ‘21,” says Mr. Dowd.

He recently testified in the Senate about his findings, which are documented in his book, ‘“Cause Unknown:” The Epidemic of Sudden Deaths in 2021 & 2022.’ “If you look at the the stock prices of Pfizer and Moderna ... they’re at critical junctures in their technical stock prices,” says Mr. Dowd.

“In fact, Pfizer, I think, is now below its pre-COVID price.” How have the number of excess deaths and disabilities changed given the low booster uptake in America today? What about in other countries? “The booster uptake in the U.S. is quite low now. So, the good news is there seems to be a declining trend in excess mortality—not [in] disability so much, unfortunately,” says Mr. Dowd.

Excess Deaths in Portugal

In 2021 Portugal lead Europe with the highest vaccination rate against COVID-19 with almost 100% of citizens receiving two shots. As of 2024, Portugal is now recording the highest excess deaths in Europe.

“According to data from the Instituto Ricardo Jorge, published this Thursday in Expresso, between December 18 and January 14 there was a 28% excess mortality,” explains Gustavo Tato Borges, President of the National Association of Public Health Doctors.

Doctors are baffled as Portuguese citizens continue dying in numbers previously considered unthinkable. For example, in January this year, more than 2,800 citizens died above the baseline level.

So many people are dying in 2024 that hospitals and emergency health care facilities are totally overwhelmed.

The leader of Chega, André Ventura, believes parliament should investigate a possible link between the joint administration of the flu and Covid-19 vaccines and the increase in mortality in Portugal.

Speaking to journalists in Braga, on the sidelines of a meeting with the board of the Minho Business Association, André Ventura said that the investigation should be carried out “without excesses or fantasies”, but also “without fear or ideological taboos“.

“I hypothesise that the vaccines may have had some impact on the immune system that could make the traditional flu vaccines taken at this time less effective. Parliament should investigate without fear and without ideological or any other taboos. I think we should talk about it with various experts,” he said.

Official figures from January 12 showed that Portugal recorded 5,542 deaths in the first two weeks of 2024. A figure such as this has not been seen since 2021, during the worst phase of the Covid-19 pandemic in the country, writes Lusa.

The Death Certificates Information System (SICO) show that 513 people died on New Year’s Day, a figure that has never been reached on January 1 in the last 10 years.

Today, news channels are reporting that Portugal has reached “the highest levels of excess mortality in Europe”.

Health authorities’ response has been to increase the number of citizens eligible for flu and Covid vaccines. But suggestions elsewhere of possible links with the administration of vaccines and excess deaths have been coming, bit by bit, since the mass-Covid vaccine roll-out began.
