With the renewed imposition of hard lockdowns in Europe, from a statistical point of view, peculiar arguments have been used to justify harsh political action.
Thanks to the diligent efforts of the alternative media however, the mainstream media now use the phrase “death with Corona” instead of “death from Corona” when announcing the number of “Corona deaths”. This at least acknowledges that there may be another cause of death.
German journalist Boris Reitschuster has challenged the political and media Corona narrative of the Merkel administration by presenting figures related to excess mortality. This denotes an increased death rate compared to the long-term expected values. From these statistics it is easy to derive how many victims, for example, the various flu epidemics in Germany have claimed.
Asian flu (1958): 30 000 dead
Hong Kong flu (1970): 40 000 deaths (Germany); 15 000 dead (GDR)
Influenza epidemic 1996: 20 000 dead
Flu epidemic 2013: 2 000 dead
Influenza epidemic 2017: 23 000 dead
Influenza epidemic 2018: 25 100 dead
During the six flu epidemics in Germany over the past 62 years, an excess mortality figure of between 20 000 and 55 000 was noted.
But there are two further crucial questions: Was lockdown ever imposed at any point in the history of the Federal Republic of Germany because of one of the influenza epidemics, the most devastating of which has caused excess mortality of up to 55 000 deaths? The answer is no.
And what about excess mortality of the Corona pandemic at the moment?
The screenshot for this article provides an answer since it documents how Corona compares to the “flu peak” in 2018. This is similar to the conclusion drawn by the Munich Ludwig Maximilians University published on Tichys Einblick on December 11, 2020: “Overall, no outstanding excess mortality has been observed in the second wave of the pandemic, and in the young population there is even more of an under-mortality.”
The argument is being touted by politicians that the lockdown is intended to prevent the overloading of hospitals, but as the past has shown, this occurs with every major flu epidemic.
