Johns Hopkins University Newsletter Pulls Study Challenging Deadliness of COVID19

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, Johns Hopkins University Newsletter ran a study from Genevieve Briand, assistant program director of the Applied Economics master’s degree program at Hopkins, that looked at the effect of COVID-19 on U.S. deaths according to data from the CDC. Dr. Genevieve Briand at Johns Hopkins University noted some critical accounting errors done at the national level.


Initially Johns Hopkins University Newsletter Ran Study Saying COVID ‘Relatively No Effect on Deaths’ in U.S., Then Deleted It After Publication.

After retrieving data on the CDC website, Briand compiled a graph representing percentages of total deaths per age category from early February to early September, which includes the period from before COVID-19 was detected in the U.S. to after infection rates soared.

Surprisingly, the deaths of older people stayed the same before and after COVID-19. Since COVID-19 mainly affects the elderly, experts expected an increase in the percentage of deaths in older age groups. However, this increase is not seen from the CDC data. In fact, the percentages of deaths among all age groups remain relatively the same.

When Briand looked at the 2020 data during that seasonal period, COVID-19-related deaths exceeded deaths from heart diseases. This was highly unusual since heart disease has always prevailed as the leading cause of deaths. However, when taking a closer look at the death numbers, she noted something strange. As Briand compared the number of deaths per cause during that period in 2020 to 2018, she noticed that instead of the expected drastic increase across all causes, there was a significant decrease in deaths due to heart disease. Even more surprising, as seen in the graph below, this sudden decline in deaths is observed for all other causes.

This trend is completely contrary to the pattern observed in all previous years. Interestingly, as depicted in the table below, the total decrease in deaths by other causes almost exactly equals the increase in deaths by COVID-19. This suggests, according to Briand, that the COVID-19 death toll is misleading. Briand believes that deaths due to heart diseases, respiratory diseases, influenza and pneumonia may instead be recategorized as being due to COVID-19.

The CDC classified all deaths that are related to COVID-19 simply as COVID-19 deaths. Even patients dying from other underlying diseases but are infected with COVID-19 count as COVID-19 deaths. This is likely the main explanation as to why COVID-19 deaths drastically increased while deaths by all other diseases experienced a significant decrease.

The overall conclusion is that Covid-19, at least according to collected data, is not the killer disease that it is currently hyped up to be.

  1. Thank you for publishing this. Dr. Drew Pinsky has been making similar observations on his podcast for months. He says that there was a surge in deaths in February and March followed by below average deaths in April and May and his conclusion is that just about anyone who has died of Covid would have died of other causes within a year. The recent “surge in cases” is based based on false positives. If millions are being tested, a net false positive of 1% would result in a surge in [asymptomatic] cases. The fact is there is no greater threat from a coronavirus this winter than any other. Face coverings as they are being used–taken on and off every two minutes–have zero efficacy. This has become a dangerous mass hysteria. We haven’t begun to see the fallout.
