Some people are killed, or die early, due to the Covid vaccines. But how many? In an earlier article I analysed U.K. death data, adjusting them to allow for mortality displacement and the absence of flu to estimate that around 23,000 people may have died due to the vaccines. This was similar to an estimate arrived at separately using fatal Yellow Card reports and assuming an under-reporting factor of 10.
Now, analysis of non-Covid death data from Denmark adds further support for this estimate, showing increases in non-Covid excess mortality associated with vaccination campaigns at a similar level.
By comparing non-Covid excess mortality (NCEM) rates in Denmark and the U.K., I find that they closely resemble each other at approximately 250 excess fatalities per million vaccines administered, i.e., a fatality rate of 0.025% or one every 4,000 doses.
I picked Denmark to analyse next because of its completely different Covid mortality history from the U.K. during the 2020 portion of the pandemic. The similarity in the NCEM rates since the start of the vaccine rollout despite the two countries’ very different prior Covid rates indicates that it is not related to Covid infection symptoms and longer-term effects.
The chart below shows the Covid mortality history in both countries. The U.K. data have been scaled to allow for the difference in population size.
