Is There a Link between the 2021 COVID-19 Vaccination Uptake in Europe and 2022 Excess All-Cause Mortality?

the new york times newspaper

Jarle Aarstad & Olav Andreas Kvitastein Purpose: We primarily study a possible link between 2021 COVID-19 vaccination uptake in Europe and monthly 2022 excess all-cause mortality, that is, mortality higher than before the pandemic.  Methods and Results: Analyses of 31 countries weighted by population size show that all-cause mortality during the first 9 months of 2022 increased more […]

Denis G. Rancourt et al. We make a quantitative comparison between the COVID-19 mortality statistics of the Government of Canada (Public Health Agency of Canada; managed by the Chief Public Health Officer) and calculated total excess all-cause mortality (ACM) (deaths from all causes) for the Covid period. The claimed “COVID-19 deaths” mortality is almost double […]

COVID-19 Vaccines: PANDA’s Comprehensive Multidisciplinary Review Has Found That Mass Covid-19 Vaccination Has Been a Failed Experiment

PANDA Mass public-health measures always involve a trade-off between expected benefits and known and potential risks or harms. Harms include both short-term and long-term or inter-generational harms (e.g. poverty). Separately, they must at all times comply with basic human rights requirements. These fundamental realities have been ignored in much of the public-health response to the […]

COVID-Period Mass Vaccination Campaign and Pubic Health Disaster in the USA

Denis G. Rancourt, Marine Baudin, Jérémie Mercier All-cause mortality by time is the most reliable data for detecting and epidemiologically characterizing events causing death, and for gauging the population-level impact of any surge or collapse in deaths from any cause. Such data is not susceptible to reporting bias or to any bias in attributing causes […]

Model Misspecification and Grossly Inflated Estimates of Lives Saved

Spiro Pantazatos In a recent study published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases, Watson et al. apply mathematical modeling to estimate that mass COVID-19 vaccinations saved between 14-20 million lives worldwide during the first year of the COVID-19 vaccination program. Previous Brownstone articles by Horst and Raman have already pointed out several erroneous assumptions in the […]
