Prestigious medical journal probes study that claimed Covid vaccines have killed up to 280,000 people in the US

  • Claim came from a survey of 2,840 people in December 2021
  • Study authored by Mark Skidmore was published in BMC Infectious Diseases 

An inquiry is being conducted on a study purporting that Covid vaccines have caused the deaths of as many as 280,000 people in the United States by an esteemed publisher responsible for some of the globe’s most prominent scientific documents.

This startling figure has been spread by global anti-vaxx organizations and used as evidence to call for an immediate end to vaccine distributions worldwide.

Infamously, the controversial Canadian psychologist Jordan Peterson has also promoted this discredited view.

In response to the discovery of the study, Springer Nature has initiated an investigation into its publication. The research was published in one of their subsidiary journals.

The study was also shared by the likes of Jordan Peterson, a Canadian psychologist who has shared discredited views online
The study, published this week in the journal BMC Infectious Diseases , was authored by an economist at Michigan State University. Professor Mark Skidmore, who has posted a number of articles critical of Covid jabs on his personal blog, used an online survey of 2,840 people taken in December 2021 to make his estimate of Covid vaccine-related deaths in the US
Respondents of the survey were asked if they knew of someone who had suffered a severe health reaction from getting a Covid vaccine. Of the total 612 people (22 per cent) who claimed they had, 57 people (2 per cent) said that they knew someone who had died as a result
Experts have cast doubts over the authenticity of a series of videos that claim to show patients violently shaking after a reaction to the Covid vaccine. In one of the more shocking clips, a female patient struggles to walk from the bathroom to her hospital bed while experiencing tremors.

‘Once the journal’s investigation has concluded and we have the necessary information to make an informed decision, we will follow up with the response that is most appropriate and that provides clarity for our readers,’ it said.

‘This may include potentially taking editorial action.’

The groundbreaking study was released this week by an economist from Michigan State University and published in the journal BMC Infectious Diseases. The results of this research hold great potential for furthering our understanding of infectious diseases. 

Professor Mark Skidmore, who has expressed his thoughts on Covid jabs through a number of blog posts, determined an assessment of potential vaccine-related fatalities in the US by means of a survey carried out online with 2,840 participants collected during December 2021.

Catherine Austin Fitts graciously supplied the funding for this survey.

For the 2021 documentary ‘Planet Lockdown’, a woman of the same name – former Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development under President George H.W. Bush – captured an extensive interview, offering valuable insight into the state-of-the-world today.

This 90-minute video makes a number of claims regarding the Covid vaccine program and origin of the pandemic.

Respondents of the study were questioned whether they knew of someone who had encountered severe health issues as a consequence of receiving the Covid vaccine.

A total of 612 people (22%) admitted to having knowledge that someone has perished because of the virus, and a startling 57 individuals (2%) revealed they knew personally somebody who had lost their life due to COVID-19.

These included deaths from heart attacks, strokes or blood clots. 

After obtaining data, Professor Skidmore formulated a vaccine fatality ratio and extrapolated it to the whole U.S. population that received the Covid vaccines during their first year of deployment.

Professor Skidmore noted mournfully in his journal that the death toll from Covid vaccinations might possibly reach an appalling 278,000.

Nevertheless, his estimations suggest the death toll may actually be closer to 330,000.

Professor Skidmore, an esteemed expert on finances and the economics of natural disasters according to his university, declared that the figure was derived by excluding fatalities which would have occurred regardless of vaccination.

US health authorities have verified nine deaths reported via VAERs that are ‘causally associated’ to Covid vaccines after reviewing the information like death certificates, and autopsy and medical records

Experts expressed their apprehensions regarding the study’s methodology.

Dr Simon Clarke, an associate professor in cellular microbiology at the University of Reading, warned that any study conducted with a self-selecting group of participants is inherently flawed and consequently must be analyzed critically.

It is simply impossible to guarantee that the sample of people used in surveys are unbiased and impartial. In fact, individuals can easily manipulate survey results for their own benefit.

‘There’s nothing wrong with a scientific journal publishing the work of an economist, but we should always be mindful of the limitations any study and just because it’s been accepted by a scientific journal does not automatically mean it’s right. Editors can make mistakes too.’

He went on to emphasize that it’s vital for journals to guarantee the content they publish is helpful and useful for readers, along with determining if a report has passed through stringent standards of proof before publishing any conclusions.

Withdrawing an article post-publication only takes place almost exclusively if either a severe issue is revealed after its release or in cases of scientific misconduct.

‘For me, the biggest problem with this paper is that fails to sufficiently highlight its own potential shortcomings and it was the job of the Editors to insist that they be included before they authorized publication.’

Many anti-vaccine activists citing rising deaths that have been concealed by global health bodies, they are calling for vaccine rollouts to be brought to a standstill. They believe the death count from vaccines has been severely underreported and masked as an increase in excess fatalities.

In his own words, Professor Skidmore highlighted that the issues reported by survey participants – such as heart attacks and strokes – are in line with Pfizer’s evidence of potential risks associated with their Covid vaccine.

Health experts have consistently rebuffed apprehensions that mRNA vaccines are causing an increase in cardiovascular issues.

A recent report from the US government revealed that since the pandemic began last year, an additional 300,000 deaths have occurred which cannot be directly linked to Covid-19. This is significantly more than usual.

Noted specialists are of the opinion that fatalities due to cancer, heart related issues, overdoses and firearms have been amplified as a result of the pandemic. Nevertheless, an in-depth examination from the CDC is projected to take some weeks before being ready for public consumption.

In England, an alarming number of people have passed away in recent weeks- a shocking fifth more than what was expected. In the first week of January alone, nearly 3,000 deaths occurred that were not anticipated – sadly adding to the rising death toll since summertime.

Professionals attribute the NHS dilemma–which resulted in emergency care and ambulance services experiencing unprescedented delays–to a severe flu outbreak coupled with December’s freezing temperatures.

According to alarming reports from charities such as the British Heart Foundation, a startling surge in coronary heart disease-related fatalities is largely due to profound and pervasive disruption of cardiac care services.
