Nurse educator Dr. John Campbell is sounding the alert on a wave of unexplained deaths. According to the government data that Campbell has reviewed, many more people are dying than would be expected based on averages from the last five to seven years, and averages from years prior to COVID. Many of these excess deaths are occurring in young, otherwise healthy adults.
Campbell has 2.44 million subscribers on his YouTube channel. He recently shared more government data showing that young and healthy people keep unexpectedly dying, and not of COVID.
In the first week after Campbell posted one such video, “Excess deaths, the data,” on August 28, it had garnered over 916,000 views and more than 20,000 comments.
One-off news articles about high-profile athletes, actors, and celebrities dying only tell part of the story.
37-Year-Old Healthy Mountain Biker Dies
Campbell pointed out one of these: professional mountain biker Rab Wardell. Wardell won the elite men’s title at the Scottish Cross Mountain Bike Championships, which were held in Dumfries and Galloway in the western Southern Uplands in Scotland at the end of August. A few days later, the 37-year-old was reported to have died in his sleep. His fiancée posted on social media that she tried to save his life, performing CPR until the paramedics arrived:
“I still don’t understand what’s happened; if this is real; why he’d be taken now – so healthy and happy,” Katie Archibald tweeted on August 24, the day after Wardell died.
