Study suggests Covid vaccines may have contributed to excess deaths

June 07,2024

New Delhi: A recent study conducted by researchers at Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam has called for thorough investigations into the potential side effects of Covid-1919 vaccines and their links to mortality rates. The study, published in BMJ Public Health, reports over three million excess deaths in Western countries during the first three years of the pandemic.

According to the study, 3,098,456 excess deaths were recorded across 47 countries between January 1, 2020, and December 31, 2022. The breakdown of excess deaths is as follows:

2020: 1.03 million excess deaths.

2021: Over 1.25 million excess deaths, coinciding with the rollout of Covid-1919 vaccines.

2022: Over 808,000 excess deaths, even as Covid-19related restrictions were lifted.

The researchers highlighted that “excess mortality has remained high in the Western World for three consecutive years, despite the implementation of containment measures and Covid-1919 vaccines.” They described the figures as “unprecedented” and emphasized the need for policymakers to investigate the “underlying causes of persistent excess mortality.”

As per a Russia Today report, the study noted that adverse events following vaccination have been recorded in various official databases. These adverse events included ischaemic stroke, acute coronary syndrome, brain haemorrhage, cardiovascular diseases, coagulation issues, gastrointestinal events, and fatal blood clotting. Despite vaccines being intended to protect against severe illness and death due to Covid-1919, medical professionals and vaccine recipients reported “serious injuries and deaths following vaccination.”

The researchers pointed out the challenges in differentiating the causes of excess mortality due to varying national statistics, different testing policies for Covid-19, and disagreements on what qualifies as a Covid-19 death. They stressed that, “during the pandemic, it was emphasised by politicians and the media on a daily basis that every Covid-19 death mattered and every life deserved protection through containment measures and Covid-19 vaccines. In the aftermath of the pandemic, the same moral should apply.”

The World Health Organization (WHO) declared in May 2023 that Covid-19 was no longer a global health emergency. However, Covid-19 cases and related deaths continue to be reported globally, with the WHO tracking 36,014 cases in the week before May 19, showing a week-on-week rise of 2,336.
