All-cause mortality by time (day, week, month, year, period), by jurisdiction (country, state, province, county), and by individual characteristics of the deceased (age, sex, race, living accomodations) 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 of death.
… Interestingly, none of the post-second-world-war Centers-for-Disease-Control-and-Prevention- promoted (CDC-promoted) viral respiratory disease pandemics (1957-58, “H2N2”; 1968, “H3N2”; 2009, “H1N1 again”) can be detected in the all-cause mortality of any country. Unlike all the other causes of death that are known to affect mortality, these so-called pandemics did not cause any detectable increase in mortality, anywhere.
… It is only natural now to ask “what drove this?”, “who benefited?” and “which groups sustained permanent structural disadvantages?”
