FORMER Wall Street executive Edward Dowd, whom I interviewed for TCW last year, has been dissecting excess mortality statistics recorded since the Covid pandemic began three years ago. He has analysed and reanalysed the numbers and has concluded that excess death rates, in those aged 26-41, are closely related to the administration of Covid vaccinations.
‘From February 2021 to March 2022, millennials experienced the equivalent of a Vietnam war, with more than 60,000 excess deaths,’ he said. ‘The Vietnam war took 12 years to kill the same number of healthy young people we’ve just seen die in 12 months.’
This 12-month period covers the Covid vaccination rollout for that age group so in theory we would have expected to see a decrease in excess mortality, not an increase.
So that everyone can see how he came to this conclusion, Dowd collated his research in a number one best-selling book called ‘Cause Unknown’: The Epidemic of Sudden Deaths in 2021 & 2022. The title reflects the myriad newspaper headlines announcing hundreds of young people who had ‘died suddenly’, ‘died after a short illness’ or ‘died unexpectedly’, with no reasonable explanation.
He is an American finance wizard with over 20 years’ experience who once worked for BlackRock, the largest investment company in the world, where he increased his clients’ assets from $2billion (£1.6b) to $14billion (£11.6b) so he is qualified to deal with statistics.
Comparisons with normal years was key. All-cause mortality remains relatively constant, and in 2017, 2018 and 2019 around 2.8million Americans died. Figures spiked in 2020 (Covid), although less than you might imagine, but in 2021 the stats were off the charts.
The CEO of insurance company OneAmerica brought this alarming trend to our attention in 2022 when he disclosed that during the third and fourth quarters of 2021 death in the 18-64 age group was 40 per cent higher than before the pandemic. Significantly, most deaths were not attributed to Covid. ‘It was an earth-shaking statistic,’ said Dowd. ‘Ten per cent would have been a 1-in-200-year event.’
Covid is not a significant cause of death in young people so what caused the shift in deaths from older to younger?
Fit, young athletes, the healthiest among us, were collapsing and failing down dead while playing sports, such as Italian footballer Giuseppe Perrino who died at the age of 29 while playing in a memorial match for his late brother. This is not normal, and Dowd’s book has 23 pages of headlines devoted to dead athletes.
Former England football player Matt le Tissier said: ‘I’ve never seen anything like it. I played for 17 years, and I don’t think I saw one person in 17 years have to come off the football pitch with breathing difficulties, clutching their heart. It’s not just footballers, sports people in general – tennis players, cricketers, basketball players, just how many are keeling over?’
In 2006 the University Hospital of Lausanne, Switzerland, looked at sudden cardiac death in athletes under 35 years old. They found 1,101 cases over a period of 38 years. The site goodsciencing.com reported that by December 2022, 1,616 athletes had suffered cardiac arrests since their Covid injections and that 1,114 of them were dead, despite immediately being attended to by first responders and qualified first-aiders.
Is this a coincidence as they would like us to believe? The first Covid vaccine was administered on December 8, 2020, starting with those aged 65 and over. Other age groups were introduced gradually and by April 2021, the 45-64 age group were targeted. In May 2021, vaccination of the 15-44 group began.
We then began hearing reports of teenagers dying in their sleep, which is just as rare as athletes expiring on the pitch. Two boys in Connecticut and Michigan were confirmed to have been killed by vaccine-induced myocarditis after their second Pfizer jab. Were we warned to safeguard our children? It barely made the news.
Deaths that did appear in mainstream media included mother-of-two Helen Rhodes, a 46-year-old midwife who died in her sleep on a flight from Hong Kong to Frankfurt in August 2022 with her husband Simon and their two young children.
Another mother, Amelia Smith, 23, ‘died suddenly’ in her sleep. Her second child was only one month old.
These tragedies could have been avoided had it not been for vaccine mandates, and permission to travel based on vaccination status. Dowd reports that after President Biden introduced vaccine mandates the vaccination rate among working people rose extremely rapidly in a short time.
Media and government tried to dismiss reports that the vaccinated were suffering injury and death, but the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), the US equivalent to our MHRA Yellow Card Scheme, has nearly 1.5million reports of adverse reactions associated with Covid vaccines, most entered by medical professionals. The idea that significant numbers of these reports are fake, entered by antivaxxers, is ridiculous, especially as it is a federal offence to file a false VAERS report.
To stop us investigating the phenomenon in the UK, the British Heart Foundation dismissed vaccination complications like myocarditis as ‘mild’ but Dr Venk Murthy, a cardiologist trained at Johns Hopkins, said: ‘People with myocarditis are at lifetime of increased risk of cardiac complications. This can have profound consequences . . . typically told to limit activity for several months, sometimes longer. This means no sports. Some kids are told not to carry books to school.’
Josh Stirling, a former institutional investor and Wall Street insurance analyst, was recruited by Dowd to help gather evidence. He began to run the numbers from the group life and disability divisions of insurance companies. Any change there is considered significant because group life is very stable.
After mass vaccination, the uptick in deaths was clear. If the vaccines were working, there should have been a decline in deaths. Stirling studied the US Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) excess mortality data. Millennials saw an excess mortality in the second half of 2021 at 84 per cent above baseline. The authorities said it must be more suicides, overdoses or missed cancer screening during lockdowns but Stirling and Dowd found this was statistically impossible for a spike in the same three-month period as the vaccine rollout.
The Society of Actuaries Research Institute (SOA) published their Covid-19 mortality survey report on 17 August 2022. It represented approximately 80 per cent of the group life US revenues. One of their tables showed clearly that excess mortality was 78 per cent for the 25-34 age group and 100 per cent for the 35-44 age group in the same quarter that Biden introduced vaccine mandates and corporate America complied.
Another independent source showed the same disturbing data. The Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Centre (CRC) and the Johns Hopkins Centre for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) tracked and analysed Covid data worldwide. They said that 68 per cent of the world’s population was vaccinated and 13billion doses administered. If they had been safe and effective, how could they explain that the highest death rate occurred after mass vaccination?
It seems obvious that an urgent investigation should be carried out. Dowd said: ‘If these new pharma products had been bound by the same laws as all other pharma products, their advertising would have included the following: “Some people will experience side effects including cardiac arrest, blood clots, stroke, and sudden death.” Which wouldn’t make for a very good sales pitch.’
