There follows a guest post by the academic economist who regularly contributes to the Daily Sceptic.
We have known for some time that the vaccines can lead to myocarditis, a condition that causes the heart muscle to swell. Myocarditis is typically a serious illness and in its worst cases can cause cardiac arrest and death. There are also some indications that the risk for myocarditis from the vaccine may be higher in younger people and especially in younger men – a group that is not seriously at risk from COVID-19.
This was clearly not an effect picked up by the clinical trials. We already know that the clinical trials have proved misleading when it comes to protection against infection – and there are also indications that the trials may have been misleading on how well the vaccine prevents hospitalisation and death. Since the vaccine was launched, independent macro-level data has consistently proved more scientifically reliable than micro-level trial data.
So, can we get any numbers on macro-level heart failure? Yes, in fact, we can – and the results are disturbing. The Government publishes a weekly report on excess mortality in England and it includes a breakdown by cause. One of these causes of death is heart failure. Usefully, the data also tells us how many of the deaths from heart failure were due to COVID-19. Using this data, we can calculate excess deaths from heart failure not caused by COVID-19. Let us compare the period in which the vaccine has been active, to the period in which it was not.
Here we see that excess deaths from heart failure that were not caused by COVID-19 are more than 12 times higher in 2021 than they were in 2020. Could these be myocarditis deaths induced by the vaccine? Possibly. There is no way to be totally sure. But the results are worrying and merit further investigation.
One statistical trick we might use to tease out causality is to take the ratio of COVID-19-induced excess heart failures to non-COVID-19-induced excess heart failures and compare this to the number of people vaccinated under-30 – i.e., the group most vulnerable to vaccine-induced myocarditis. (Note: there is no age-specific data on non-Covid-related heart attacks.)
This correlation is concerning. As more young people are getting vaccinated, the ratio of excess non-COVID-19-induced heart failures rises. Something is causing this rise in mysterious heart failures, and it seems like this ‘something’ is correlated with the number of under-30s getting vaccinated.
Finally, we can compare the data we have generated with the reported number of heart failures in the Government’s Yellow Card vaccine-effect reporting system. This will give us a nice test case for how accurate this system might be. The Yellow Card system tracks deaths from both “cardiac arrest” and “cardiac disorders”. We are more interested in cardiac arrests, but let’s look at both.
In the last line we have an estimate of how much the Yellow Card system might be missing deaths from vaccine-induced heart failure. As we can see, our numbers suggest that vaccine-induced heart failure deaths are over ten times higher than the Yellow Card system is capturing. Even if we are very conservative and we use the Yellow Card’s “cardiac disorders” categorisation, we are still detecting almost three times as many deaths as the reporting system.
This raises a final question: if the Yellow Card reporting system is missing so many heart failure deaths, is it missing lots of other potential vaccine-induced deaths in other categories?
Stop Press: An Ontario Civil Liberties Association researcher and several Canadian academics have written “A Letter to the Unvaccinated” to support those who turn down the Covid vaccine, reports Mercola.
In the letter, the group addressed the “29% of Canadians who have not received a Covid vaccine, and an additional 14% who have received one shot”. The group emphasised that the unvaccinated are “not alone” and said medical treatment should be voluntary with informed consent.
