Global deaths follow the same pattern as registered deaths in the Northern hemisphere

Please review the two charts shown in Figure 1 and Figure 2.

Figure 2 is an example of the typical pattern of reported deaths for European countries and the USA. There is a peak around December +/-. According to our medical sources these are related to mainly lung related diseases such as pneumonia and the flu. Why these cycles exist is unclear.

If we consider that SARS-CoV-2 had only started affecting reported deaths March, April 2020 then it appears that the reported deaths are following a similar pattern.

Figure 3 shows weekly reported deaths from the 11th of April onwards. Figure 4 shows daily reported deaths for the UK for a similar period 2017-2018.

The pattern is ominously similar. Of course, the similarity is not exact but is close enough and other registered deaths periods are similar, not just for the UK, but other countries.

It appears that deaths due to SARS-CoV-2 follow the same patterns in a year as respiratory deaths in general. Beyond this a conclusion cannot at this time be made.

The warning is that if the same pattern is followed then we can expect a further reduction until deaths start increasing again and the process starts again.

We must thus not assume that we are over the worst once vaccinations are rolled out. The flu vaccines have not retarded the cycles. Only in one years-time will we have a better picture of the true nature of SARS-CoV-2.

Help support our Covid-19 Data Research

Over the last 18 months, we have volunteered our time to the data analysis of the Covid-19 pandemic, publishing truthful unbiased facts backed with real data evidence. We have also worked alongside doctors and lawyers, providing them with 'data evidence' and 'statistical insights' from a data perspective into the pandemic to help support their work.

For us to continue our data research, publish more articles, help support the doctors and lawyers, and lobby the federal/state governments with 'evidence' behind us, WE NEED YOUR HELP. If you can provide a small donation to our work that will be greatly appreciated!
