John Hopkins University Assistant Program Director censored for her analysis of CDC data.
According to the legacy media, there have been more than 250,000 deaths from COVID-19 since the so-called pandemic began. That means to the average American that there are 250,000 plus Americans who are dead today who would otherwise still be with us. Those people were killed by the virus.
That seems a matter of common sense. Is it true?
Genevieve Briand, assistant program director of the Applied Economics master’s degree program at Johns Hopkins University, recently critically analyzed the effect of COVID-19 on U.S. deaths using data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in her webinar titled “COVID-19 Deaths: A Look at U.S. Data.” Her conclusion? COVID-19 is having no significant impact on deaths in the United States.
Briand explained that the significance of COVID-19 on U.S. deaths can be fully understood only through comparison to the number of total deaths in the United States. Briand conducted a detailed review of the available data, relying upon the exact same numbers CDC uses in its calculations. Specifically, she delved deeply into the causes of death listed. What she found, not surprisingly, was that there was a sudden spike in 2020 for deaths linked to COVID-19. That makes sense, since COVID-19 only emerged as a major threat this year.
What she found next, though, was more surprising. While deaths attributed to COVID-19 dramatically increased, deaths attributed to all other causes suddenly plummeted. Most notable perhaps was the decrease in deaths attributed to heart disease. Somehow, suddenly, according to the data, in the midst of worldwide pandemic, Americans were much less likely to have heart attacks or strokes.
The same held true for deaths from diabetes, respiratory ailments, Alzheimer’s and every other disease that had plagued the United States for a generation. COVID-19 might be killing us but it was somehow magically curing us of a wide range of other diseases. And, miraculously, the decrease in deaths from all other causes seemed to match almost exactly the number of deaths reported to be attributable to COVID-19.
Except there are no miracles. What Briand had determined was not that diabetes was suddenly vanishing but that deaths of all kinds, which would have occurred anyway and been classified as being attributable to another cause, were being labeled as COVID-19 deaths. A man who had died a year earlier would have been found to have had a heart attack but was now a victim of the pandemic. A woman who in 2019 would have died of Alzheimer’s was now another casualty of the pandemic.
“All of this points to no evidence that COVID-19 created any excess deaths. Total death numbers are not above normal death numbers. We found no evidence to the contrary,” Briand concluded.
If you have COVID-19 and you die you are counted as having died of the virus. Keep in mind you can be classified as having COVID-19 even without a positive test. If your symptoms suggest you could have COVID-19 – you have it.
Briand delivered her important findings during a webinar. Her remarks were then available on the Johns Hopkins University website. Predictably enough, since she challenged the approved orthodoxy, her comments were then removed.
Fortunately, information from the full webinar was reported here, however the original link to the information was removed by John Hopkins University. The original report was found on the “Wayback Machine” and is available here. Take the time. Listen. Decide for yourself whether you still think we are experiencing a dire public health emergency, or we are victims of a colossal fraud.
