The Australian media came up with a “Covid bombshell” this week: The actual death toll is many times lower than believed. In Western Australia, less than 10 percent of deaths were caused by Covid-19, reports 9 News Perth.
Between Jan. 1 and June 30 of this year, 192 Corona deaths were recorded in the state. Only 18 deaths were linked to Covid-19.
While hardly anyone is dying from Covid, the number of deaths in Australia is exploding. In May, the Sydney Morning Herald headlined, “We’re living with Corona, but more of us are dying than ever before.”
This month, the Australian government announced that nearly 21 percent more people will die than expected by 2022.
Former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson wrote, “If you factor out corona deaths, it’s still more than 10 percent higher than normal.” So Covid mortality is much lower than initially thought.
In the Australian state of Victoria, about 27 percent more people died compared to 2020 and 2021, according to government data. The pattern is concerning because mortality rates did not increase significantly during the pandemic, while vaccination coverage in the country is among the highest in the world, Berenson said.
In New South Wales, the country’s largest state, 95 percent of those over 16 have been vaccinated. Sixty-four percent of the population is boostered. Notably, many people died from diabetes and dementia.
Berenson pointed out that several studies have shown that cognitive decline can occur in older people after mRNA vaccination, especially after the second vaccination or booster.
