The OECD Mortality database can give Raw Mortality (how many people died), Excess Mortality (how many people died compared to the average over the last 5 years), and now Covid Mortality.
I have plotted the (raw, not percentage) Excess Mortality for each week and added in the Covid Deaths so we can compare them.
2020 – The Beginning
In 2020, we actually saw net Negative Excess Mortality, for about -158 off the Average over the past 5 years.
2021 – The “Vaccine”ing
2021 did not see Negative Excess Mortality. It saw strong Positive Excess Mortality – 2,169 more people died than the average over the preceding 5 years. A total of 26 (Twenty Six) Covid cases were reported to OECD.
2022 – Why, God? WHY?
In 2022, Covid Deaths took off. From week 8 to week 30 of 2022, NZ reported an average of 88 Covid deaths a week, a total of 2,042. The total Excess Mortality compared to the 5 preceding years was 5,697. Essentially, Covid made up for under 34% of our Excess Mortality in 2022.
What killed all those other people?
2023 – Yeah, not looking great
So far in 2023 (the database only goes up to mid-March), we have had 1,116 more people die than the average over the 5 preceding years (and 2 of those years are 2021 and 2022!) and only 229 Covid cases, 20.5% of the total.
What’s killing all those extra people?
