HSE Covid-19 Death Related Statistics for Ireland as of 7th Sept 2020

The government and RTE present the HSE Covid stats is a very biased way. It is a form of lying with statistics. Here on this page we attempt to put the numbers in context and high light things so that you can see if all the fear mongering is really warranted.

As you can see the average age of death is 82. This is almost identical to the average lifespan (i.e. average age) for people in Ireland.

The constant reporting on number of cases is just fear-mongering. It doesn't matter. We don't publish the number of flu cases every year nor for any other diseases. And in most of the "cases" that they report the people who test positive are just fine. So why the fear? Is it just for political expediency and to scare people into taking a vaccine. Is it because the global financial system is about to be reset ? Who profits? Are you thinking logically since you became fearful. Who gains from fear? It is not you!

For those who died, the vast majority would have had underlying life threatening conditions already and that in particular would have applied to the younger people because generally people who die before the average lifespan age, die because of underlying ill-health.

You need to ask yourself do these figure justify all the fear mongering, creating a mental health crisis amongst the young, forcing children and teenagers to wear masks in school, banning more than 6 people meeting together in their own homes and stopping you from having a pint with your healthy friends.

Here is the same data which shows the average age profile for people who die of all other causes in Ireland and this profile (graph below) has been pretty constant for years.

Here are some other basic stats about death in Ireland. These figures now allow you to put something like "10 people died today" into perspective to any given day because if you do not know on average 85 people die every day, then 10 could sound like a national calmity.

Death statistics for Ireland from ALL causes.
These vary little from year to year. Figures from Central Statistics Office
Average number of deaths per Day 85
Average number of deaths per Month 2,550
Average number of deaths per Year 31,116

Age profile of all deaths in Ireland for males and females. Data from CSO

What you see here in this graph, is that unfortunately some people but not too many, die before the reach the national average lifespan. They die from all sorts of things like cancer, heart attacks, stroke etc. And it so happens every year when the flu season comes around a few people who have not reached old age yet, are unfortunate to succumb to it and die.

It is therefore not surprising that Covid while clearly affecting mostly people over 65 and who already have underlying illness, does in fact kill a small number of people younger than 65. But does it mean all the healthy people should be severely restricted?

This is NOT the Black Death where it is estimated a third of all people died. In fact Covid has not killed any more than a typical flu year and we do not lock them and restrict everybody and every business for that.

Number of Flu Deaths in Ireland
Figures from CSO
Year Influenza Related Deaths
2015 1,199 (Influenza and pneumonia)
2016 1,127 (Influenza and pneumonia)
2017 1,147 (Influenza and pneumonia)

CSO = Central Statistics Office

In the case of flu most of the deaths are categorized as "Influenza Related Deaths" and this is because pneumonia is very often triggered by it and this is why they count it this way.

In the case of Covid-19, not only do the follow this rule too but they have additional very flexible rules like this. If you die of cancer and you test positive for Covid-19 then that counts as a Covid death. Likewise if you are die of heart failure and you test positive for Covid-19, then that counts as a Covid death. The rules for filling out death-certificate were rapidly updated in all countries around the world and in all cases they conditions to mark a death under the covid category was very liberal. Many doctors questioned this approach since it is unusual, unethical and not done before.

As you would expect they are very liberal in how they count covid deaths and this is why so many doctors who have spoken out but have been silenced are saying the number of Covid deaths is exaggerated.

To help resolve this, the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) looked at the number of excess deaths in Ireland for so far this year and estimated that there the number of Covid deaths has been over counted by at least 500. This means the number of Covid-19 deaths is NOT 1,700 or so but closer to 1,200. So far the HSE and the government have made no effort to adjust their figures.

The logic is as follows. If you have a new disease and people are dying at a steady rate as per any normal, day, week, month, year, then you expect the new disease to add to the existing deaths. And therefore you should see a rise above the normal average figures. And this is what HIQA did.

Viral Issue Crucial Update Sept 8th: the Science, Logic and Data Explained!

This video is an excellent presentation of statistics and charts of deaths and death rates between many different countries both for Covid-19 and for previous flu seasons and does an excellent job of explaining the double bump often seen in the US figures. It is an excellent scientific analysis and one you will not see on RTE or the mainstream media here in Ireland

The Covid 2nd Wave is Non-Existant. It is a CaseDemic

The current "2nd Covid Wave" is simply a casedemic and not a pandemic because deaths are not rising in a matching fashion. They have only increased slightly inline with any normal natural increase that happens at the start of winter.

The massive roll out of testing where there are now (as of mid Oct 2020) over 10,000 PCR covid tests being carried out each day all the positive results are finding are either false positives or indications of people who have had Covid possibly weeks or months ago. The PCR test will pick up other corona-viruses such as the common-cold and parts of viruses particles, shattered by the bodies immune defenses.

An analysis of the Irish government's Health Preventive Surveillance Centre, HPSC which muddles the data by providing it in the form of cumulative totals since March 2020, shows that the daily death rate and daily ICU admission rate are actually very low.
