Death rates in the United States have been going down, not up, since the beginning of the year

Dr. Klaus L.E. Kaiser

If you pay attention to the news, you might assume that record numbers of people are dying. The opposite is true. Not only has overall mortality for the United States been going steadily downward since January, but mortality has been substantially lower this year than last year. These are weekly mortality statistics for the United States from the Centers for Disease Control:

Week Number of Deaths 2019 Number of Deaths 2020
1 58,291 59,087
2 58,351 59,151
3 58,194 57,616
4 57,837 57,000
5 58,128 56,426
6 58,492 56,962
7 57,917 55,981
8 57,858 55,494
9 57,920 54,834
10 58,490 54,157
11 57,872 52,198
12 57,087 51,602
13 56,672 52,285
14 56,595 49,292
15 55,477 47,574
TOTAL 865,181 819,659

We are told that 37,308 people have died this year from COVID-19 through April 18, yet actually 45,522 fewer people have died this year than last year during the same period of time.

  1. Here Comes the Mass Vaccinations, Gun Control Laws, Depression and Famines
    April 24, 2020 / Jeff Berwick

    Judging by how people all over the world have come to accept major restrictions to their civil liberties without much of a struggle, I’m wondering what’s happened to mankind? People tell the truth, no one listens. Then a few more speak out. And a few more. But because many aren’t affected they stay silent. And by not sharing the truth, such as this video or blog, you are forfeiting your own rights, those of your children, and those of people around the world who are scheduled for execution by Covid-19 – only it won’t be death by virus, but by famine.

    I am speaking out because I want my grandchildren to live in a beautiful, FREE world with the immunity they were gifted with at birth…not a police-state world where they are enslaved by debt, have 24/7 surveillance, and are forced to inject themselves with poisons so they can travel or work.

    • And, don’t forget the coming of ever more colder weather and all this entails, as the Ice Age approaches.

  2. 5 Million Cases Worldwide, 650,000 Deaths Annually: The Seasonal Flu Virus is a “Serious Concern”, But the Wuhan Corona Covid-19 (Wag the Dog) Coronavirus Grabs the Headlines
    By Tom Clifford
    Global Research, April 24, 2020
    The common flu virus will infect millions across the globe. It can be easily spread and will especially strike the young and the elderly. But this is not what has been described as the Wuhan virus. The common flu does not grab the headlines. But attach a foreign name to a virus – such as Ebola, Zika and Wuhan – and then the headlines flow… as was clearly and overtly spelled out in the “Wag the Dog” movie… this is “THE” False-Flag Trigger Event for the Long Planned Epic Sea Change for this point in Human / Geologic History that’s possibly nearing the end of a long interglacial period or start of another mini/maxi-ice age now and major population reset ww.

    It is an infowar… old folks still active, thinking for themselves and getting out in the sun away from the MSM electronics addicted “indoor cats” is how they got to be old folks. (the current level of propaganda glurge syrup dished up for this generation of mind controlled MSM zombies is worse than pathetic) (Jeff “gets” it)

  3. It would be interesting to see a weekly comparison of deaths 2019 and 2020 for a country like Russia, which isn’t part of western deception and hasn’t rolled out 5G towers to the extent that the west has. I wonder if we’d see the same type of decline.

    Even if we did see a decline, we’d have to factor in things like fewer traffic fatalities because of the lock-downs and stay-at-home dictats.

  4. According to the official data, this ‘rampaging plague’ is mercilessly slaughtering an ‘immense’ 0.0001% of the world population every day. That’s why we’re all living in terror as we watch body collectors daily patrol the streets in pickups and refrigerated trailers/riffers, piling them full of dead bodies to be carted off to the morgue.

    Oh, wait. I haven’t seen that at all. Have you? Only on TV? I wonder why it is only on the mainstream media that one can see such ‘vicious devastation’ and unclaimed bodies being dumped unceremoniously into common graves?

    COVID-19, while there may be some actual virus at the root of it, is nothing to be concerned about. Their own data demonstrates that markedly. I just wish more people were actually paying attention to what their data actually says, instead of feasting on the poison of the false prophets in the media.

  5. The State of New York conducted an antibody test of something like 3000 people. These were people out and about in public. These were not essential workers who may have had a higher than normal risk of exposure, or people who were isolating themselves and having a lower risk of exposure. The state found that 13.9% of the people tested already had the antibodies. This is a significant percentage. This tells us that a vast majority of people infected likely don’t even know they had the disease. The Governor also said that this would bring their death rate down to about 0.5%. There is the kicker. Of the people that have been classified as Covid-19 deaths, something like 1/3rd never tested positive for the disease. This means they likely died from the other respiratory illness that has been circulating this year. What conclusion can we draw from this? The likely death rate from Covid-19 is probably in the area of 0.3% to 0.4%. I think it is unfortunate that we are being hit by two different viruses with similar symptoms. I number of my coworkers were hit with it back in November/December 2019. This doesn’t make one any more or less deadly. And I doubt the families of victims really care which one killed their loved ones. I’ve said from day one that you cannot cheat the flu season. We can label these illnesses whatever we want. The same idea applies.

    BTW don’t fall for the mask scam. These surgical masks don’t work. They provide virtually no protection against the virus. Only the N-95 and N-100 masks work. Fabric masks have a nearly instantaneous penetration rate when it comes to particles as small as Covid-19. Behave the way you would if you were in a room full of sick people. Keep your distance, wash your hands, and don’t touch your face.

  6. Dr. Kaiser, you know there is something that surprises me about the numbers. In Europe there was a catastrophic peak in mortality– nearly 3 times as many deaths– at the onset of the lockdown. This followed a dip when the covid deaths dipped below normal mortality. It was Week 14 or 15 when the lockdown began there. Look at maps & graphs.

    It surprises me that something similar didn’t occur in the US. I wonder if the numbers have been “redistributed.” I recall hearing on NPR (National Public Radio) that “some US States are not reporting all their deaths, and the only reliable statistics are here at our task force.”

  7. One would expect the total number of deaths (all causes) to increase by the number of covid deaths, yet there is no significant increase. Therefore the covid numbers are inflated by reallocating deaths from other sources.

  8. VIDEO Press Conference:
    “If you’re going to dance on somebody’s constitutional rights you better have a good reason, not something theoretical.”

    “Big businesses are open , little businesses are not. There’s no science behind that. There’s other factors in play that we don’t have time to go into, but it’s not science.”
    –the intransigent Dr. Dan Erickson, Kern County, California
    May he flourish!

  9. What Dr. Kaiser has done is show that we are all so locked down that we are
    1) not spreading Covid around, nor other diseases, so there is less death from that
    2) we are not dying because we are out driving much (I think the usual traffic deaths is 40,000 annually
    3) crime is down, because even criminals are less active, and homes are more risky to rob with people in them, plus less small businesses with cash to rob, etc. So lockdowns lower deaths . . . but kill the economy, and this one is getting silly in many places with almost no infections. We are all living under what is clearly mostly a big city problem.

  10. The old saying “you can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you CAN’T fool all of the people all of the time” is increasingly relevant to this COVID 19 fraud, as it is to the Global Warming/”Climate Change” fraud.
    Both are completely and shamelessly FAKE NEWS!

    • So long as millions (Globally) are receiving their ‘Don’t Think About Life’ welfare checks there is no need for the authorities to fool anyone. Most people have sold their soul for a few lousy bucks.

  11. Corona now,
    then mandatory vaccines
    then digital tattoo/chip ( Search Bill gates + ID2020)
    then 5G ( all the better to surveil you with,as if they don’t have enough now,plus the health effects have not been checked).
    then no cash

    Then present your digital tattoo
    to buy food,
    to get a house
    to travel,
    for health treatment,
    then etc.

    No freedom, the Digital Concentration Camp has arrived.


    Videos on vaccines you really need to listen too. Our medical practitioners are not asking enough questions on our behalf. Smallpox 1795-2005 Polio and DDT Smoke, Mirrors and the “Disappearance” of Polio. – Very Interesting. Aluminium is toxic.


    There is an increase in the UK and wales. Things might start to mirror this in the future. They are clearly way better than the CDC at collecting data. lol. What is interesting to note is excess deaths only begin to get over average on a weekly basis for the 45-49 age group. That is only in the couple hundred. This increases up to the point for the 90+ age group which is a few extra thousand. There is no risk of excess death in the under 45 group which should not only be allowed to work and play. They should be encouraged as much as possible to develop herd immunity since there is near zero risk to them.

  13. I have a few questions.

    Is contact with the US Healthcare system more deadly than the Corona-19 Virus ?

    Is the decline in deaths because fewer people are eating fast food in restaurants ?

    Is the decline in deaths because there is now less pollution, and the air is cleaner ?
