the last few weeks the Hatchard Report has been discussing high rates
of excess all-cause death around the world. The connection with Covid
vaccination is statistically evident and the evidence is mounting.
This is not only affecting the aged but also young and working age
people. Rather than rehashing the arguments you can catch up via this
which explains how the emerging data on injury and death is becoming
too hard to ignore.
high rate of all-cause deaths, some of which are sudden and
unexpected, has increased the workload of coroners. Dr. Judy Melinek
is a US coroner who moved to New Zealand in 2020 to take up a
position in Wellington. An extract from her 22 August 2022 blog at
Medpage Today illustrates the challenges coroners face:
Ministry of Health, meanwhile, has changed how they count COVID-19
deaths, distinguishing who is dying of COVID-19 and who is dying with
COVID-19. I'm a professional who has to make legally-mandated
decisions about these kinds of things, and even I am struggling to
parse that policy. Here's a hypothetical example drawn from several
cases I've done recently. A young adult man comes to my autopsy
table. He had been apparently healthy and died suddenly. When I open
him up, there's nothing inside -- no gross anatomic findings on
autopsy that would explain his death. Under the microscope, however,
I do find evidence of scarring in the heart tissue. When the body
came to the hospital and then into our mortuary, he had two COVID-19
PCR swabs; one came back positive and one came back negative. So, we
can surmise that this dead guy is harboring a low viral load -- but
is that an indication of a recent, healing infection or a "historic,"
remote one? And how does it play into the cause of death?….
many what-ifs. In my field, we don't like what-ifs. We're supposed to
provide final answers to coroners and to the decedents' families.
Knowing that what I write on the death certificate becomes part of
the public record and actually influences the numbers our national
health authorities generate makes me super cautious. I show the case
to other pathologists. I schedule a peer review. I do extra stains
and tests for viral PCR on the tissue -- tests I would not have had
to run 2 years ago -- and I agonize over every word in the opinion on
my autopsy report. Even routine cases for a forensic pathologist,
like motor vehicle accidents and drug overdoses, get extra scrutiny
if they test positive for COVID-19, or if they received a vaccination
and the family or coroner wants me to answer whether the death had
something to do with that.”
Melinek is certainly a Covid vaccine supporter and has given public
interviews decrying conspiracy theorists and anti vaxxers, but her
report indicates that key decision makers at the pathology end of
all-cause deaths are sometimes unsure and becoming super cautious.
are making up their minds. Dr. Alex Washburne is a mathematical
biologist and the founder and chief scientist at Selva Analytics.
He researches Covid epidemiology, the economic impacts of pandemic
policy, and stock market response to epidemiological news. He wrote
on Twitter yesterday:
the dominoes fall, there's a very real chance that the people we
in the pandemic were actually villains.
There's also a real chance the researchers with the most-cited papers
are actually guilty of the worst research misconduct of the century.”
is an interesting contrast here between someone who cuts up dead
bodies and looks for clues and someone who analyses public Covid data
and advises financial markets. The one becoming more cautious, the
other becoming more suspicious.
are not trained to analyse social data, and epidemiologists are not
trained to examine internal organs, but given the complexity and
novelty of the pandemic they certainly need to listen to each other
data sources are very important
of them are dealing with primary data sources, which brings us to a
huge problem with the formation of pandemic response policy. A lot of
policy is being formulated based on out-of-date secondary and
tertiary sources which no longer match up with primary data sources.
primary sources are objective data sets from both research
projects and public data collection. Some of these may involve
subjective judgements on the part of physicians, but let’s hope
that these are made carefully as Dr. Melinek reports she does.
sources involve published analysis of the data sets. These
are scrutinised through peer review both formally and informally, but
as Dr. Washburne reports even these can be subject to bias and
misconduct. However, inconsistencies and inaccuracies, whether
unintended or not, usually surface as time goes by, as evidenced by
the 500+ drugs released then withdrawn from the market since 1950.
sources involve administrative decisions taken by health
advisors and experts. These are further from the primary source data
and can involve professional bias. We have certainly seen a lot of
this during the pandemic.
step further away from the data, politicians and media
explainers make their own assessments, advocate policies, and relay
these to the public. We are now many steps away from up-to-date
information in the rapidly evolving Covid data landscape. Political
and commercial agendas are being funded in the media. Huge mistakes
can and are being made. Mistakes that are evidently costing lives, as
the rising excess all-cause death data shows.
recent answer from the Green Party in the Rural Greens blog in
response to the coronial inquest into a death attributed to mRNA
vaccine side effects illustrates this point:
of lives saved, one death in over 4 million vaccinations not even
counting the boosters. You could hardly avoid all the information on
the ministry website, articles in Stuff, TV and radio. This is sad
for the family, just as it is sad for those
families who lost completely healthy people to Covid world wide. Let
us be clear once and for all, the Green Party is encouraging all
sorts of vaccinations because they have proven to be effective and in
some cases leading to elimination of diseases."
other words, this Green Party spokesperson relies on tertiary sources
and MSM. They even got the MoH advice wrong, assuring us that there
has been only one death in New Zealand as a result of mRNA
vaccination—a preposterous assertion incompatible with primary
posturing like this has hardened public opinion, but it has done
little to foster real understanding of the risks.
of mRNA interventions can be inherited
pathologist and the epidemiologist (as well as the Green Party
spokesperson) we have already met, might do well to talk to the
geneticists who published on 20th August 2022 a paper entitled
to mRNA-LNP inhibits adaptive immune responses and alters innate
immune fitness in an inheritable fashion".
is a study of the effect of Lipid Nanoparticles (included in Covid
mRNA vaccines to facilitate the entry of genetic information into
cells) on immune system function in mice. It concluded
summary, the mRNA-LNP vaccine platform induces long-term unexpected
immunological changes affecting both adaptive immune responses and
heterologous protection against infections. Thus, our studies
highlight the need for more research to determine this platform’s
true impact on human health.”
other words, whatever mRNA vaccine achieves, good or bad, it could be
passed on through generations. A frightening prospect—mistakes may
never go away and could haunt future generations.
can pathologists accurately determine the cause of pandemic deaths?
the autopsy, what is a cautious pathologist going to write down when
it comes to describing the cause of an unexpected death in the time
there is no requirement to record vaccination status on the death
certificate, so a vital primary source of data is being discarded.
Secondly and crucially the actual ‘cause of death descriptions’
that a pathologist has to choose from are limited by training and
prior experience. There hasn’t been a mass use of genetic vaccines
before the pandemic—so they are not recognised as a cause of death
in the normal course of things.
illustrate the dilemma pathologists face. This is part of a diagram I
used when lecturing at university. It is designed to simply
illustrate the key role of DNA in orchestrating all parts of the
