Death rates 2019 vs Death rates 2020 per week

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

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.

    The numbers on death rates 2019 compared to 2020 were very interesting. I have searched CDC extensively and can not locate the numbers. Please provide me with the location within the CDC website. This is very important information you are providing. I would like to spread the message with ample documentation. Thanks

    Did you consider that the dramatic drop in transportation is causing a decrease in vehicular accident deaths? Most people are also not in harms way as often if they are home or close to home. Stop using statistics with limited details to prove your point.

  3. Jim Parker

    So, from where on http://www.cdc.gov were these data Pulled?
    I’ve been unable to find such.
    If you will direct me to the data at CDC so I may verify , I will broadly publicize.

    Thank you.

    Unfortunately, this doesn’t correspond to the data I was able to find on CDC site.

    Could you give us more details on this, maybe link to these CDC mortality statistics?

    Best regards,
    Dejan

    I too come up empty when I try to find these numbers.
    Please post where you are able to get these statistics AND please send me an email with that data. Thanks. Shirley-Ellen.

    I’ve just been searching the same information. One explanation given is that because of the lockdowns, accidental deaths (3rd leading cause of death in the US) have gone down. (Fewer car accidents, etc.). What I would like to find is a year over year monthly or weekly total of deaths by accident so we can see the exact change. Further, I’d like to see what’s happened with cancer and heart disease death totals (they are 1st and 2nd leading causes of death). I suspect that those numbers are going down as well, as many of those deaths are being attributed to Covid-19. But that’s strictly suspicion until I can find numbers. If you’ve had luck with that, I’d like to hear about it!

    Can someone provide me with the correct number of moralities in 2019? And the number up to July 2020 from all diseases, not just Covid-19…Thank you…I have looked everywhere and can’t get a number..I got the numbers for 2017 and 2018 and this link above I can’t get to it because I am on a computer!

  8. Derrick

    In the article you suggest these are numbers released by the CDC. Would you please cite the source? The article linked is not from the CDC and doesn’t seem to pertain to the articles topic. I’m having difficulty finding it myself, but this is very important of true.

    Thank you.

    I can’t find the 2019 deaths from all causes numbers either, and I’m not finding a link in the article. 🙁

    I know these numbers are true but can you give me somewhere else I can verify the numbers so I have proof outside of your website.

    Would also love proof that hospitals are in on the scewed numbers because of the money they get if they put covid 19 on the death cert.

    I also looking for the facts about the vaccine they are coming out with.

    Here are the methods I used to arrive at number, I’m using 2018 but I’m sure you can get other years fairly easily:

    To get the total number of death in 2018 I use the following: https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/databriefs/db355-h.pdf — go to summary to get the total deaths for the year.

    To get the total number of deaths I used: https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid19/index.htm, Table 1 column 2, this doesn’t include Jan so…

    To get Jan numbers I went to: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/covid-data/covidview/04102020/nchs-data.html totaled the first four weeks and took 3/7 ths of the fifth week (not 100% but close)

    Now I can get the total number of 2020 deaths and through July 31 we have ~63% the total number of deaths 2020 vs 2018 with only ~58% of the year past — sounds like a large uptick right? But even this doesn’t count for everything. Since I can’t find the monthly numbers for 2018 how do I account for when people die?

    I found a 2017 chart https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/68/wr/mm6826a5.htm that shows people like to bite the big one in the second half of the year. It seems pretty likely that our deaths to date are the same or lower than 2018. I didn’t try to crunch these numbers I just looked at the chart.

    Now we have a REALLY BIG DIRTY LIE. If we go back to the first link and look at deaths to date COVID, the news uses a slightly elevated number than the CDC issues (I don’t know where they get that from, but I doubt it is legitimate). But the number they are using is how many people die while being COVID positive. It doesn’t matter what actually killed you, did you have COVID. There have been cases where someone died in a car accident while being COVID positive and was called a COVID death. So we know these numbers are inflated (I’m going to say hugely, but that’s me).

    What I am pretty confident is that COVID hasn’t increased morbidity at all. It MAY have had an affect on the general downward morbidity trend over the last several years.

    I hope this helps.

    The first report is the important data,
    The second supports the subject however the subject report was not up to date. The number has slightly surpassed the expected deaths for the year.

    Keep in mind that we are at a peek elderly population from the boomers after WWII and that nearly 50% of the deaths come from nursing homes. Mainly in the states where the State forced Nursing home to take on Covid19 infected people. On the surface the motivation would be to reduce the number of people these broke states were paying for in the nursing homes. I think murder should be on the table as everyone knows Nursing homes are susceptible to influenza type diseases . But that is my opinion.

    Its very hard to find the right report, the Deaths peeked April 18th and is down 90% from the peek. So to date the over all death is slightly above normal expectations. Arguments about auto deaths are foolish.. 39,000 in 2019. Even if the number is zero, and its not. it would not explain the difference. Further for 4 months people that would normally have been diagnosed with cancer in time to treat it will not be diagnosed in time. Shutting down is nothing less than cannibalism.

    Here we are in August still being fools and slitting our own throats. Kill the Economy and their will be no hospitals, no doctors, no medicines, no food, no Nothing.

    Congratulation for publishing this data.
    Think about it, what are the chances we know correctly our past and future when we do not even know our present?
    Very sad, but keep laughing cose otherwise u will get depressed.
