Excess Deaths for 15 to 64 Year-olds

By December 7, 2020Commentary

Okay, I have gotten some great information from people on deaths and I will get to it.  But here is a great chart, courtesy of Twitter, which shows excess deaths in a few countries among 15-64 year-olds.  These are not CV-19 deaths.  They are government response-caused deaths.  And look at the country that doesn’t have excess deaths among this age group.  And there are people out there trying to criticize Sweden.  I really don’t know what they are thinking.

    With regard to “Excess Deaths for 15 to 64 year-olds” – Is there a breakdown of reasons? Drugs? Alcohol? Something else?

      You can look on the CDC website and see some data, but not too much by age group, there are other research papers on the topic. In this age group, it is some heart attacks, diabetes and hypertension-related from people not seeking care from fear; some overdoses, some suicides, primarily. I hear from people who are doing more detailed analyses and will post these as I get them and any serious research paper that deals with the “lockdown” effects I tend to post on in a summary. Hope that helps.

      From the research I see, it is similar in Europe to the US. Heart attack, diabetes and hypertension deaths resulting from failure to go the emergency room or seek treatment for serious symptoms, out of fear. Suicides, drug and alcohol overdoses due to despair. Lots of dementia deaths, a few in this age group, called “failure to thrive” which means isolation and loss of human contact due to banning of visitors. I try to read any serious paper on the topic and post on it.

    Just in time for the front page story in my local rag about how Sweden did not, in fact, do it right. Sigh.

    Interesting, I am not clear what is meant by “government response-caused deaths”. I guess I should read the study?
