[Everything below is excerpted from this article: Is Something “Abnormal” Evolving in US Deaths? The author’s reasoning and evidence looks sound. I strongly encourage readers to click on that link and read the whole piece. ABN]
I am at a loss to think of any explanation for why we now have five times as many dying of “Symptoms, signs and abnormal clinical and laboratory findings, not elsewhere classified”.
- There is NO correlation to COVID deaths.
- The “Abnormal” surge is fairly consistent across the nation in terms of timing.
- R00-R99 Deaths are a virtual flatline for at least a decade, with no significant seasonal trend.
The introduction and mass use of COVID vaccines — primarily the mRNA Pfizer and Moderna vaccines — is the only likely explanation.
The number of deaths involved is NOT inconsequential.
Here it really raises eyebrows. There are small COVID-correlated increases in deaths of “usual suspect” causes (e.g. Diabetes), but the numbers of deaths are generally in line with seasonal and annual fluctuations. Then there’s the Abnormal R00-R99.
The R00-R99 Category Deaths not only increase roughly 5-fold over baseline, but also show no correlation to COVID-19 waves.
Perhaps this is a seasonal thing that simply wasn’t seen in 2020? NO!! Going back a full decade (using CDC Wonder 3 ), it is clear that deaths classified in this category are remarkably consistent and generally not seasonal. ( The Wonder data is monthly, and I adjusted to Weekly rate, these curves are also smoother because of this.)
