Mark Steyn and I talk about excess deaths and Covid vaccine


MARK Steyn has been in the vanguard in this country of calling attention to Covid vaccine injury and the scandal of its official denial. It was not surprising then perhaps that the question I asked on Thursday, ‘Have the Germans proved the link between Covid vaccination and excess deaths?’ published here caught his eye. He invited me on his show that evening to discuss the research paper I had reported on.

His powerful introduction flagged up the reality. He reminded viewers of one shocking young death after another – all happening since the vaccine rollout began. It raised the question of that new Orwellian nomenclature, Sudden Adult Death Syndrome – which is apparently baffling doctors in Australia – and appears designed to obscure or deny what is going on. What a convenient term SADS has become for those refusing to face one of the most likely reasons for the far too many ‘unexpected’ deaths in young people.

He asked: Why the refusal to contemplate a link? I ventured that it’s not just the health authorities, but the mainstream media that’s failing in its duty to investigate this unlikely coincidence too. Yet this is not for want of senior doctors or scientists, whether from the UK Medical Freedom Alliance or HART, sounding the alarm and demanding urgent inquiries. One letter after another – most of which we have published on these pages – has been ignored. The latest, regarding one of the most likely causes of death, post-vaccine myocarditis, is here. It is clear from published data that the risk from vaccines is higher than infection in the younger males, while one major study has shown there was no increase in myocarditis during the first year of the pandemic prior to the vaccine rollout.

It’s to be hoped that after the publication of an exhaustive study of excess German mortality in 2020 to 2022 this denial can no longer be sustained. ‘Excess mortality in Germany 2020-2022’ by Christof Kuhbandner (a psychologist at Regensburg) and Matthias Reitzner (a statistician at Osnabrück) finds that excess deaths in Germany are tightly correlated with the period of mass vaccination. Furthermore it identifies the highest excess mortality of 2021 was down to an increase in deaths in the younger age groups; those least likely to benefit from (to have need of) the vaccines but most likely to have healthy immune systems attacked by it, the authors postulate. For clarity, here is a direct quote from the discussion part of this incredibly painstaking and self-checking statistical analysis (my emphasis):

‘The analysis of the yearly excess mortality showed a marked difference between the pandemic years 2020 and 2021. Whereas in the year 2020 the observed number of deaths was extremely close to the expected number with respect to the empirical standard deviation, in 2021, the observed number of deaths was far above the expected number in the order of twice the empirical standard deviation. An age-dependent analysis showed that the strong excess mortality observed in 2021 was almost entirely due to an above-average increase in deaths in the age groups between 15 and 79, reaching more than nine per cent in the age group 40-49. A detailed analysis of the monthly excess mortality showed that the high excess mortality observed in the age groups between 15 and 79 started to accumulate only from April 2021 onwards. 

‘An analysis of the number of stillbirths revealed a similar mortality pattern than observed for the age group between 15 and 79 years. Whereas in 2020 the number of stillbirths per 1,000 births was similar than in the year before, an increase of about 11 per cent was observed in the second quarter of the year 2021 compared with the previous years.

‘Taken together, these findings raise the question, what happened in 2021 that led to a sudden and sustained increase in mortality in April in the age groups below 80 years and to a sudden and sustained increase in the number of stillbirths, although no such effects on mortality had been observed during the COVID pandemic so far.’

Given the published evidence of vaccine injures and deaths (2240 Yellow Card fatalities reported in this country alone which may be less than 10% of actual figures according to MHRA) there can be no scientific justification for discounting the vaccines as a one of the contributors to excess deaths and for refusing even to consider the possibility. Not to do so is not just staggeringly unscientific – it is negligent. All not to embarrass those who blindly unquestioningly followed the government instruction that it was ‘safe and effective’?

A peer-reviewed study published just three days ago on the Pfizer and Moderna clinical trials used by the Food and Drug Administration for authorization co- authored by Peter Doshi, a senior editor at The BMJ, and others entitled ‘Serious Adverse Events of Special Interest Following mRNA COVID-19 Vaccination in Randomized Trials in Adults.’ Vaccine, August 31, underlines the urgency. It is the most categorical evidence to date of the increased risk of serious adverse events among the vaccinated from the trial sample. This re-analysis of the data indicates that the vaccines may be elevating risk of serious adverse events by 1 in every 800 vaccinated, very far from the 1-2 per million reported for vaccines in general.

We will report on this study in more detail next week.

You can watch my interview here at about 40 minutes in. As ever the whole programme is worth seeing. To put it simply, Mark Steyn is the best thing that has happened to British broadcasting in years – and that is because he asks the right questions, not just because he always seems glad to hear what Laura and I have to say!
