Covid-19 vaccines and lockdowns are associated with years of life lost on an unprecedented scale. EuroMomo includes European mortality monitoring activity data from 22 European countries, as well as from Israel, representing a total population of around 450 million people.
Since the pandemic began, the years of life lost reported by EuroMomo have increased by 60%. Compared to the year and a half before the pandemic, the number of years of life lost after covid vaccines were introduced increased by 384%.
EuroMomo presents weekly statistics of possible excess mortality. The graph below shows data plotted for cumulative excess deaths for the period 2018 to November 20, 2022 for all ages.
Excess mortality was evident in the pandemic year of 2020 (grey line), and in 2021 (dark blue line) when mass vaccination began, but even higher in 2022 (light blue line), despite the fact that the variant Omicron, with a modest death ratebegan to dominate at this time.
An interesting pattern is observed when comparing age groups. According to Professor of Epidemiology John Ioannidis, the death rate from Covid-19 for people under the age of 60 is only 0.035%. However, in the 0-14 and 15-44 age groups, where the Covid-19 mortality rate is even lower, excess mortality has been extremely high since mass vaccination was introduced.
Given that excess mortality is more severe for a younger person than for an older person, we determined the effects of lockdown measures and vaccine rollouts by calculating the number of years of life lost before and after these interventions.
The average age of death of all people registered in EuroMomo is 82 years. The mean number of years of life remaining for all people who died before this age was estimated. For example, in the age group from 0 to 14 years, on average 82-(0+14/2) = 75 years were lost for each person. In the age group over 85, this calculation would mean life years gained, which of course is unreasonable. In this age group, a 1-year expected survival was assumed.
The graph below shows the excess mortality in each age group during three periods: 1) the year and a half immediately before the pandemic, 2) the pandemic period before mass vaccination began, 3) the pandemic period after the initiation of mass vaccination. For all age groups, the highest degree of excess mortality occurs in the period after the start of mass vaccination.
The following table shows the years of life lost in each age group. The greatest number of years of life lost after the start of vaccination is found in the age groups of 45-64 and 65-74 years.
The last graph shows the total number of years of life lost during the same 3 periods.
The trend of increasing years of life lost is contrary to what would be expected from effective Covid-19 countermeasures, including mass vaccination and lockdowns. The damage in terms of reduced longevity is getting bigger with each passing week. How much longer should we continue down this path of failed public health policy before we start reversing the trajectory?
