Popcom: Philippines Logs Highest Mortality Rate in 2021, Highest in a Year Post WWII

In this February 2, 2022 article for The Philippine Daily Inquirer, John Eric Mendoza writes on a recent report published by the Commission on Population and Development (Popcom).

According to Popcom, the Philippines’ mortality rate in the first 11 months of 2021 is at 6.98 per 1,000 Filipinos, a 25% increase from the 2020 rate. The total number of registered deaths last year was 768,504, which was higher by 154,562 than the entire 2020.

Popcom executive director Juan Perez III said in a statement: “This latest release already shows a 25 percent increase in mortality, with still a month-and-a-half worth of data to be reckoned for 2021. This also set a record in the number of Filipinos dying in a year since post-World War 2”. Perez adds that once the entire year was recorded, the 2021 number of deaths would indicate the highest annual death statistic in the country’s recorded medical history.

Perez says another 800,000 deaths are expected to be added for November and December. Ischaemic heart disease and COVID-19 are the top two causes of death for 2021.

Editor’s Note: After reading this article, we hope you go and visit an analysis we made on the preliminary data on deaths released by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) so you can better understand the significance of this report from Popcom [see 2021 Excess Deaths in the Philippines Shows Pandemic, but it is Not COVID].

While people are quick to say that there is nothing anomalous about the information presented by this article, we want people to remember: heart inflammation is a confirmed side effect of the COVID vaccines. How are doctors able to differentiate between heart disease and heart inflammation caused by the vaccine? Also, remember that the death reporting for “COVID deaths” is also anomalous [see PSA data on deaths shows government either manipulating us or covering up their mistake to understand this statement better]. Lastly, all-cause mortality is an important safety signal. Even if the vaccines are not causing these deaths, health authorities should strive to know why more people are dying.

We will more able to understand the significance of this report once the full death report from the PSA has been released. For now, we leave you this question: Why do we have more COVID deaths in the year when the vaccines were available than in the year when it was not?
