Study suggests Covid vaccine may cause additional deaths in US and Western countries. Investigation into underlying causes urged

A recent study by a peer-reviewed journal suggested that Covid-19 vaccines may be linked to the “unprecedented” rise in excess deaths in the United States and other Western countries since the start of the pandemic.

Scientists who looked at mortality data from 47 Western countries revealed that despite the widespread rollout of Covid vaccines and various prevention measures, excess mortality rates have remained at alarming levels since 2020. New York Post The researchers stressed the need for a thorough investigation into the underlying causes of this continued increase in excess deaths, the report said.

Their findings were published in the peer-reviewed journal BMJ Public Healthunderscored the complexity of the situation. The study highlighted the dichotomy between the intended protection against COVID-19 and the documented adverse events associated with vaccines. “After the pandemic, the same ethics must apply,” the researchers stressed, referring to the moral imperative to protect lives through both prevention measures and vaccination efforts.

According to the study, more than 3 million excess deaths have been recorded in the US, Europe and Australia since 2020. Despite a peak of over 1 million excess deaths in 2020 during the peak of the pandemic, numbers have been worryingly higher in subsequent years, with 1.2 million in 2021 and 800,000 in 2022. These figures include deaths directly caused by the virus as well as those resulting from health strategies employed to curb its spread and impact.

The researchers also highlighted the documentation of serious adverse effects of vaccines, such as ischemic stroke, acute coronary syndrome, and brain hemorrhage. The study cautions that “this commonality hinders clinical suspicion and consequently their recognition as adverse vaccine reactions,” underscoring the challenge of identifying and addressing potential risks associated with vaccination efforts.
