SO many other things have popped up lately that we haven’t had a gander at what the end of year is looking like in covid test land and excess mortality! Here is the update.
Starting with the ol’ Rona testing at Walgreens:
As we can see, the unvaxxinated still represent the lowest positivity group among those tested. Look at that pack of freshly omicron boostered peeps: 30.7% tested positive for covid during this week of testing. It isn’t any better for those recently vaccinated in the last 3-8 months either. 34% and 39% tested positive in those groups. Glad to see that the cron bivalent booster is working so well.
Overheard a colleague today saying “man everyone in my family is sick. Parents, kids, wife…..”. A few friends of mine with vaccinated kiddos have been sick 2-3 times since early October.
Speaking of the efficacy of the omicron bivalent booster. We discussed in September how the vaccinated keep mutating the virus and that the variants not covered by the omicron booster would overrun the “vaccine effective” variants by Halloween? Well, here you have it. The BQ1.1 IS THE MOST DOMINANT. That “variant” isn’t covered by the omicron bivalent booster. So if you are lining up for the newest latest and greatest bivalent booster, it isn’t doing anything good for you. Any potential benefit is zero at this point (I believe there are zero benefits to this vaccine ever, but hey, some people still believe in them to be effective, just like they believe the tooth fairy is real).
Onto excess mortality. There is usually a month or so lag in reporting. So this is through mid November.
Here is cumulative, all ages. We keep climbing. We were sitting at 325 excess deaths per 100,000 people to start off the year. Now we are at a shade over 400 excess deaths per 100,000 people. Most of that climb was May 2022 to present.
What we have done to the elderly age 85+ is staggering:
We started the year at 6,000 excess deaths per 100k people. It is now at 8,000 excess deaths per 100k people. EXCESS. This age group is expected to be closer to death than other age groups, and we anticipate significant deaths to occur in this age group each year. Given that, we are STILL at 8,000 excess per 100k people?!?!? Lord have mercy. What have we done to these elderly people……..notice that the pandemic itself increased it to around 2,500 excess deaths. Once the jib jab entered the equation, the excess deaths have shot through the roof.
Excess death has DOUBLED since vaccine mandates went into place in fall 2021 for the age 45-64 group. And remained high and growing through 2022. They were already trending pretty high starting with the vaccine release in early 2021.
Here is the s score, or the sigma for excess deaths. Sigma is how far out of standard deviation range we are against “normal”. A sigma of 17 is more than a 1:million event.
The age 25-44 group is going to need a new graph bar, because we have pegged the top of this one kids. We are at 120 excess deaths per 100k people and climbing. And have been since the vax mandate went into place September 2021.
Sadly, excess mortality shows no signs of stopping. I wonder where the plateau is…..how long will the excess happen before we start to trend down again?
I leave you with this graphic from England. I saw this on Twitter, the data was collected from the ONS data for England. This shows monthly excess mortality, based on age and gender, since March 2020. Man, the age 0-24 males starting in May 2021……and ALL ages and gender starting in May 2022…….this is awful.
You can run but you can’t hide from a constantly mutating virus!
Looking a lot like it'll just keep getting worse.
