Excess deaths are on the rise – but not because of Covid.
Were the causes deliberately obscured?
Hat tip to Daniel Horowitz of the Blaze for pointing out the Telegraph article (see below) and supplying the Canadian data. The full text of the Telegraph article is at the bottom of this piece.
While I suspect the vaccinations are the cause of the excess deaths, I cannot prove it without a lot more autopsy data or additional statistics that are not being supplied. It seems that there are less autopsies being performed than usual, however. Even though their purpose is to elucidate unexplained deaths.
The governments of the US and UK know exactly who was vaccinated, and when, and they know the diagnoses on the death certificates for every death. Don't believe the excuses that it takes weeks and months to gather these data. A funeral parlor cannot pick up a body from the hospital until the death certificate has been completed. The state gets the death certificate within hours of a death. What they then do with the data is the question. In the US, the Centers for Deception and Confabulation bury it.
In Canada, Horowitz reports that similar large increases in deaths have been reported from Alberta and New Brunswick, but they started earlier, in mid 2021.
The ICD-10 Codes
Have you ever heard of ICD-10 codes? This is the "International Classification of Disease" set of diagnosis codes created by the USG and WHO, allegedly for medical billing purposes.
Something really peculiar happened in the transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10, which occurred in the US between 1999 and 2015. Suddenly the number of diagnoses and procedures ballooned, including bizarre diagnoses (burns sustained on water skis, bitten by pig, sucked into jet engine—not kidding, these are real)--splitting lots of hairs when there was no discernible need to split them. Per the CDC,
There are nearly 19 times as many procedure codes in ICD-10-PCS than in ICD-9-CM volume 3
There are nearly 5 times as many diagnosis codes in ICD-10-CM than in ICD-9-CM
There are now 70,000 different diagnoses, up from 14,000 in the ICD-9.
It seemed apparent that someone had fun making some of these diagnoses up. Were the inventors given a total number of codes that had to be devised? I always wondered why the US and other nations transitioned to this more expensive and unmanageable system. But now I think I know. It was intended to confuse the data on diagnoses and causes of deaths.
Again, according to the CDC,
World Health Organization (WHO) authorized the publication of the International Classification of DiseasesExternal 10th Revision (ICD-10), which was implemented for mortality coding and classification from death certificates in the U.S. in 1999.
1999. Did the proponents of this convoluted system know they were going to need to obfuscate the causes of death in the future? Should we be investigating the roots of the ICD-10 coding system to identify some of the Great Reset perpetrators?

Office for National Statistics data leads health experts to call for urgent investigation into what is causing the excess mortality
By Sarah Knapton, Science Editor 5 July 2022 • 9:00pm
Hundreds more people than usual are dying each week in England and Wales with Covid not to blame for the majority of deaths, new figures show.
Latest data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show there were 1,540 excess deaths in the week ending June 24 but only around 10 per cent were due to coronavirus.
Health experts have called for an urgent investigation into what is behind the excess mortality, with fears that the pandemic response, lack of access to healthcare and even the cost of living crisis, may be to blame.
Before the end of March, deaths in England and Wales were lower than usual this year despite hundreds of people dying from Covid. Yet in the last three months, the situation has reversed, with overall deaths rising even though Covid deaths have been falling.
‘The reality is going to be quite complex’
Prof Paul Hunter, professor in medicine, at the University of East Anglia, said some of the excess could be people whose health was weakened by Covid. The infection is known to increase the risk of stroke and heart attacks. But he warned that there may be other more complex factors at play.
“Some might also be down to other impacts of the pandemic, such as problems in accessing health care, delayed referrals for treatment and then things related to the restrictions we lived under, such as reduced activity and sedentary lives,” he said.
“I think the reality is going to be quite complex but it’s something we do need to be aware of and actually try and understand.
“We know there is a relationship between excess deaths and deprivation so maybe the current financial situation we are in is exacerbating that.
“There is despair from your livelihood disappearing up the swanny. It doesn’t have to lead to suicide, chronic stress can lead to all sorts of problems.”
Dr Charles Levinson, the chief executive of the private GP company DoctorCall, also called for a government inquiry into what was causing so many deaths at home.
The ONS reported 752 excess deaths in the home in the latest week, 30 per cent more than usual, and more than hospitals and care homes put together.
“This is exactly why a proper government investigation is required,” he said. “This is not just displacement from hospitals... I do not understand how this is not being properly discussed.”
Dr Levinson added: "The reasons behind these horrific numbers are complicated and none of us fully understand them, so that is exactly why there should be an urgent and comprehensive Government inquiry.
"If anything, the situation seems to be worsening. Considering the relentless focus on one virus for more than two years, requesting answers from Government on thousands and thousands of non-Covid excess deaths is entirely reasonable."
