Study Suggests COVID-19 Vaccine May Cause Significant Death Toll

Study Suggests COVID-19 Vaccine May Cause Significant Death Toll

Researchers call for in-depth investigation into side effects and their link to diseases

A new study indicates that more than 3 million deaths occurred in Western countries during the first three years of the coronavirus pandemic, and suggests that COVID-19 vaccines may be responsible.

Research from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, published earlier this week in the journal BMJ Public Health, reports a total of 3,098,456 deaths in 47 countries between January 1, 2020, and December 31, 2022.

The study found that 1.03 million people died in 2020, the first year of the pandemic. In 2021, when the first vaccines were administered, the death toll exceeded 1.25 million, and in 2022, after the lifting of many coronavirus restrictions, there were more than 808,000 deaths.

Despite COVID-19 control measures and vaccines, death rates in Western countries remained high for the third consecutive year, the study notes. Researchers describe these numbers as "unprecedented" and of great concern, urging policymakers to investigate the "causes of the high incidence."

During the pandemic, politicians and the media emphasized the importance of every COVID-19 death and the necessity of protective measures and vaccines. Researchers suggest that the same level of scrutiny should apply post-pandemic.

The study authors note that "suspected" side effects of the vaccine have been identified, even though the vaccine is intended to protect against illness or severe disease from COVID-19. They cite "various official sources" indicating that medical professionals and recipients have reported "severe injuries and deaths after vaccination."

Distinguishing these issues is "challenging," the study concludes, due to varying intensities and qualities of national statistics, different coronavirus testing policies, and a lack of consensus on what constitutes a COVID-19 death.

The researchers also report that side effects related to the COVID-19 vaccine include ischemic stroke, acute coronary syndrome, bleeding, heart disease, blood clots, gastrointestinal disorders, and other complications.

In May 2023, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared that coronavirus was no longer a global health emergency. However, COVID-19 cases and subsequent infections continue to be reported worldwide, with 36,014 cases registered globally in the week ending May 19, an increase of 2,336 from the previous month, according to data tracked by the Geneva-based agency.
