The truth about excess mortality

The following is a 12-minute video published by Dr. Sam Bailey last December 22, 2020. In it, she looks at excess mortality and reveals some important points about how COVID death statistics were being recorded. She raises the question of how a virus could behave so differently when crossing borders despite the fact that demographics of countries were similar to each other. She says, “it clearly raises doubts that a respiratory virus alone could possibly be the only factor at work”.

Dr. Bailey also says that except in some cities, most European countries had no excess deaths. She also says that even in those cities with excess mortality, it was wrong to assume that all these were due to COVID-19. Dr. Bailey goes on to say that the effects of coronavirus restrictions have been more severe than the health outcomes of the virus itself.

Editor’s Note: It is interesting to note that despite the “deadly virus” narrative, many countries in the world have not recorded excess mortality for 2020.

In the Philippines, in particular, deaths in 2020 was much lower compared to 2019. In a November 2020 report published by the Philippine Statistics Authority[1]https://psa.gov.ph/content/updated-philippine-death-statistics-preliminary-january-2019-november-2020, total deaths during the period January to November 2019 was at 568,552, while total deaths for January 2020 to November 2020 was lower by lower by 53,496 or 9% deaths at 515,056. Of these 2020 deaths, 8,391 came from COVID-19 – a mere 1.63% of the total deaths of the year [assuming that the deaths were appropriately counted, we know that there have been some issues in reporting of deaths and that the figure was most likely bloated due to incorrect categorization, see Death Rate, Science, Lockdown, Fear, the “New Normal”, Vaccines, Social Control and the Immune System]. Meanwhile, in 2019, deaths due to respiratory diseases including pneumonia, influenza, and respiratory infections reached 95,879, with pneumonia accounting for 62,719 of these deaths.[2]https://psa.gov.ph/civilregistration/statistics-registered-deaths-philippines-2019 That means 10.11% of those who died in 2019, died due to pneumonia. And yet no lockdowns, mandatory masking, or physical distancing implemented in 2019.

Despite this, however, the entire country has been completely transfixed with SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19. Few would bat an eye to the reality of 3.8 million unemployed Filipinos[3]https://philippineslifestyle.com/worse-unemployment-philippines-2021/, of 1/3 of all Filipino families (roughly 7.6 million households) not having enough food to eat[4]https://news.abs-cbn.com/news/12/09/20/record-hunger-in-the-philippines-as-covid-restrictions-bite, the -9.5% slump in the country’s economy[5]https://cnnphilippines.com/business/2021/1/28/2020-Q4-full-year-GDP.html, and the rising number of children committing suicide. As if this wasn’t enough, the government has added 9.795 billion worth of debt for COVID response, which puts our country’s overall debt to 54.5% of our GDP. The worst part is that we had enough data as early as August 2020 for our government leaders to make the right decision. We knew then that despite almost daily report of COVID deaths, the country did not register excess deaths.[6]https://psa.gov.ph/content/updated-philippine-death-statistics-preliminary-january-2019-august-2020 We have actually discussed this in an article, see Declining COVID-19 deaths: We need vigilance, not fear.
