Governments enforcing Vaccine Mandates are unconstitutional. On top of it when they say politicians are exempt from these mandates, what does it really mean…

The COVID-19 Mortality Working Group of the Actuaries Institute released an update of our excess mortality analysis today, covering detailed ABS data to 31 August 2022.
#COVID19Aus #ExcessMortality
Strap in folks, this is a long one... Image
(The blog has not quite been published yet. But I have things to do and needed to get this thread done. I'll link the blog at the end once it is published.)
As always, our excess deaths are measured relative to pre-pandemic expectations of mortality, including allowance for:
- changes in population size and age mix
- continuation of pre-pandemic mortality trends.

It's so hot potato that experts choose to remain baffled and the governments to stay totally silent about it.

But we deserve to know what is driving the excess deaths simultaneously all around the world.

This thread can give you the clue.

Hey, Mr @elonmusk please, don't let your staff to censor this thread as people deserve to see this. It's not disinformation and it took a big effort to put it together.

This long thread presents numerous charts comparing COVID-19 vaccine administering versus excess mortality around the globe. Dataource is OurWorldInData.

Excess deaths are not just trending. They are spiking and the correlation with vaccinations is staggering.

The Actuaries Institute COVID-19 Mortality Working group has just released our new analysis of excess mortality using detailed data to 31 July 2022.
TLDR: Another huge excess in July.
#COVID19Aus #ExcessMortality
You can find the full write-up here...…
Note we measure excess deaths relative to pre-pandemic expectations of mortality, including allowance for continuation of mortality improvement (around 1.5-2% pa).
Our methodology also allows for changes in the size and age mix of the population.
Actual deaths (orange diamonds) in July were again very high, and well above the 95% prediction interval (blue shading).

Our latest assessment of excess deaths in Australia. This covers excess deaths from all causes to 31 March, plus excess deaths from COVID-19 only until 30 June.
A thread/
#CovidAus #ExcessDeaths #ExcessMortality
Total excess mortality for March 2022 estimated at 6% (+800 deaths).
Almost half of the excess is due to doctor-certified COVID-19 deaths. Other unspecified causes and coroner-referred deaths (which includes some COVID-19 deaths) also made a significant contribution.
With January at 19% excess mortality and February at 14%, this takes total excess mortality for the first quarter of 2022 to 13% (+5,100 deaths).
Only one week in 2022 has been close to predicted; all other weeks have been above the 97.5th percentile.

Once again there is a wave of #misinformation about #ExcessMortality & #vaccines in the US.

A mysterious insurance report says “excess mortality is rising” could it be the vaccines?
No. Virtually all the excess mortality is associated with COVID infections!

A debunking 🧵.
1/ ImageImageImageImage
Every few months, a myth of “unexplained deaths not from COVID” resurfaces.
Last time they claimed “young people” were inexplicably dying. Looking at the actual data it was pretty clear that virtually all the excess deaths under 45 were due to COVID.

In a later incarnation, this conspiracy theory revolved around a mysterious (and nameless) "insurance industry expert” & "former Wall Street analyst” who did his own analysis and “found an 84% increase in excess mortality."

This too has been debunked.…

🆕 ✨According to a new @theLancet study on excess deaths, IHME’s Haley Comfort, Spencer Pease, & Stefanie Watson discuss there were 18 MILLION #ExcessDeaths due to the pandemic in 2020 & 2021. Read their post about the study in @ThinkGlobalHlth…
💡What are #ExcessDeaths? It’s a measure comparing the trends of deaths in previous years vs. deaths during the #COVID19 pandemic. The abnormal spike in deaths during 2020 and 2021 → excess deaths
Deaths ⬆️ than expected: #India, #US, #Russia, #Mexico, #Brazil, #Indonesia, #Pakistan accounted for over half the world’s 18mil excess deaths, partially due to population size

NEW—Global estimates of #ExcessDeaths indicates that 18.2 million people may have died because of the #COVID19 pandemic by December 31, 2021, according to our analysis published in @TheLancet…
The peer-reviewed analysis found over 18 million* deaths as opposed to the reported nearly 6 million deaths, more than 3 times higher.

“COVID effectively increased the global death rate each year by nearly 20% in both 2020 and 2021,” said IHME Director Chris Murray ⤵
💡So what is #ExcessMortality?

Our excess mortality estimates reflect the full impact of the #pandemic on mortality around the world (after correcting for known biases), not just the deaths directly attributable to SARS-CoV-2 infection.

1/Is loneliness more deadly than the covid virus?
A hypothesis on #excessmortality #oversterfte. This scientist @orwell2020 has has compared Sweden with a number of other countries.
Only Sweden shows no excess mortality in 2021. Why is Sweden different? Image
2/Sweden had no mask mandates, lockdowns, school closures. Swedisch government asked their citizens to act responsibly, rather than impose measures upon them. Citizens stay in control of their own lives. This empowers people. Imposing measures as a government takes power away Image
3/from people, tells your citizens we do not trust you, we must manipulate you to do the right thing. This is reflected in communication. This leads to excessive amount of fearmongering in government communication. The government cannot be seen to Image

#ExcessMortality in Ireland with @CSOIreland data through an actuarial lens.

Using official data (not, it appears we've had *at least* 1,140 more deaths than we would have expected in the first half of 2020.

Interesting discoveries discussed 👇
1/ Image
1⃣At older ages, we've seen ~1,250 more deaths than expected.
👉 unsurprising given what we know about the virus.

2⃣At ages under 55 we've seen ~120 fewer expected deaths.
👉 suggests that the restrictions may have had a protective effect on younger people.
2/ Image
3⃣ The pandemic has impacted men significantly more than women.
👉 ~810 of the excess deaths are from males, ~330 are from females.
👉 the pandemic has impacted male mortality positively at younger ages but negatively at older ages.
