Two Studies Provide Evidence that CDC Is Still Both Overcounting COVID-19 Deaths and Undercounting COVID-19 Vaccine Deaths
The Manipulation of Evidence Breeds Distrust
Early in the COVID-19 pandemic, word went out that autopsies were too risky to perform on the cadavers of people who had died from suspected SARS-CoV-2 infection. The claim that CDC has not been overestimating deaths and cases has been repeatedly debunked, and yet random people on the internet perpetuate these myths.
With both SARS-CoV-2 viral infection and vaccination lead to a similar array of reported pathological conditions, and mounting evidence of vaccine failure, it is imperative that the correct portion of weight be attributed to virus and vaccine-attributed casualties.
Here I review the evidence that the number of cases of COVID-19 and deaths attributed to COVID-19 is still overestimated and that COVID-19 vaccine-related deaths are woefully underestimated.
Autopsies Show COVID-19 death overestimation
First, we’ll start with the serial postmortem investigation undertaken by Romanova et a., 2021. "Cause of death based on systematic post-mortem studies in patients with positive SARS-CoV-2 tissue PCR during the COVID-19 pandemic".
COVID-19 was determined have caused or contributed to death in only 71% of clinical and only 83% of forensic autopsies. This means that the PCR test false positives and the non-involvement of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in 17% to 29% of deaths that otherwise (without autopsy) would have been attributed to COVID-19. Given that SARS-CoV-2 infection is unrelated to the vast majority of deaths that occur each day from other causes, widespread PCR-testing (screening) of hospitalized patients who are asymptomatic and not otherwise exposed to sequencing-confirmed COVID-19 cases could be overwhelming the death attribution.
Autopsies Show Vaccine Death Underestimation
A similar study undertaken by responsible and ethical physicians in Germany (Schneider et al.,, 2021), published in the Internal Journal of Legal Medicine) but on deaths following COVID-19 vaccination. The study, entitled Postmortem investigation of fatalities following vaccination with COVID-19 vaccines, determined that the vaccine could not be ruled out or was determined to have caused the deaths of 5/18 27% of deaths that occurred following vaccination. I’ll drop their Abstract here for the reader’s convenience.
These two studies, contrasted, mean that in the US, the denial of vaccine-related deaths is occurring (stunningly misleading official count = 0), and the number of deaths attributed to COVID-19 infection are overestimated.
Thorough postmortem investigations of fatalities following vaccination with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) vaccines are of great social significance. From 11.03.2021 to 09.06.2021, postmortem investigations of 18 deceased persons who recently received a vaccination against COVID-19 were performed. Vaxzevria was vaccinated in nine, Comirnaty in five, Spikevax in three, and Janssen in one person. In all cases, full autopsies, histopathological examinations, and virological analyses for the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 were carried out. Depending on the case, additional laboratory tests (anaphylaxis diagnostics, VITT [vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia] diagnostics, glucose metabolism diagnostics) and neuropathological examinations were conducted. In 13 deceased, the cause of death was attributed to preexisting diseases while postmortem investigations did not indicate a causal relationship to the vaccination. In one case after vaccination with Comirnaty, myocarditis was found to be the cause of death. A causal relationship to vaccination was considered possible, but could not be proven beyond doubt. VITT was found in three deceased persons following vaccination with Vaxzevria and one deceased following vaccination with Janssen. Of those four cases with VITT, only one was diagnosed before death. The synopsis of the anamnestic data, the autopsy results, laboratory diagnostic examinations, and histopathological and neuropathological examinations revealed that VITT was the very likely cause of death in only two of the four cases. In the other two cases, no neuropathological correlate of VITT explaining death was found, while possible causes of death emerged that were not necessarily attributable to VITT. The results of our study demonstrate the necessity of postmortem investigations on all fatalities following vaccination with COVID-19 vaccines. In order to identify a possible causal relationship between vaccination and death, in most cases an autopsy and histopathological examinations have to be combined with additional investigations, such as laboratory tests and neuropathological examinations.
The CDC has been getting away with their “died with = died from” policy since April 2020 and “zero deaths from COVID-19 vaccination” since the summer of 2021. This erodes public trust in public health and in allopathic medicine in general. This abuse of the public trust won’t end until those who are doing are held responsible.
The public deserves to know the balance of risks involved, and the obfuscation of reality is entirely harmful to the ability of physicians and patients alike to make truly informed decisions about COVID-19 and COVID-19 vaccination.
