A disturbing new report which analyzed life insurance claims finds that adults between the ages of 35 and 44 are dying at twice their projected rate.
Other age groups see an unexpected upswing in deaths as well
According to The Epoch Times, the report was compiled by the Society of Actuaries using 2.3 million death claims submitted to 20 of America’s top life insurance companies.
It found that the number of death claims in July, August, and September 2021 for people in the age group in question was 100% higher than had been predicted.
However, they aren’t the only ones dying more frequently, as the report also found that deaths in the 25 to 34 age bracket saw a 78% upswing.
Meanwhile, deaths among people between the ages of 45 to 54 exceeded expectations by 80% while deaths of those aged 55 to 64 were 53% above baseline.
Although the report acknowledged that COVID-19 played a role in the mortality spike among middle-aged and elderly people, the picture looked different for those who were younger, with non-COVID excess deaths outstripping those of COVID-related ones.
Interestingly, 17 of the companies surveyed indicated that it was their policy to categorize a death as being COVID-related if the disease is mentioned anywhere on a death certificate.
What’s more, only eight said that they speak with a medical examiner and family members to try and ascertain the actual cause of a person’s death.
Just one company said it recorded COVID as being the primary cause of death only when a death certificate expressly said as much.
White collar office workers see the most significant jump in deaths
Also of note is that the increased death rate was most pronounced among white-collar office workers, including accountants, lawyers, and computer programmers.
Edward Dowd is a hedge fund manager who studies excess deaths, and he told the Times that the July, August, and September death upswing coincided with a push for people to receive COVID vaccines.
“Temporally, in that three-month period, the change was such that, there was something that occurred,” he said. “Well, we all know what occurred in August, September, and October. It was Biden’s mandates on Sept. 9, and a lot of corporations anticipating those mandates.”
