ISS Report: 99% of Covid19 Deaths had Pre-existing Serious Illness Report on Covid19 morbidity in Italy is shocking reading…but not in the way you’d imagine

Kit Knightly

Anything up to 99.2% of all of Italy’s recent Covid19-associated deaths could have been caused by pre-existing chronic conditions, according to a report released by the Istituto Superiore di Sanità (Italian Institute of Health, ISS)

The report was translated and sent to us by Swiss Propaganda Research. Their team have been doing some great work collating and translating sources of information on the coronavirus pandemic. Their daily updated thread, here, is a valuable resource to anyone trying to keep up-to-date.

There are some very important facts here, all ignored by the mainstream.

There’s the epidemiological study done by a Japanese research group that found the case-fatality ratio to potentially be as low as 0.04% (markedly lower even than seasonal flu).

There’s German and Chinese biologists reporting the unproven nature of Covid test kits and that they can generate “false positives”.

There’s the Italian study finding that up to 75% of positive test patients are entirely symptomless, coupled with warnings from Spanish doctors that panic and systemic overload pose a much greater threat to public health than the coronavirus.

As we said, it’s all very valuable information, and we highly recommend you read the whole thread, and check their daily updates. An excellent piece of research.

…but we mostly want to focus on their most recent update, the translation of the ISS report on the morbidity of coronavirus patients. The statistics are highly interesting.

According to this report:

  • The median age is 80.5 years (79.5 for men, 83.7 for women).
  • 10% of the deceased was over 90 years old; 90% of the deceased was over 70 years old.
  • Only 0.8% of the deceased had no pre-existing chronic illnesses.
  • Approximately 75% of the deceased had two or more pre-existing conditions, 50% had three more pre-existing conditions, in particular heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
  • Five of the deceased were between 31 and 39 years old, all of them with serious pre-existing health conditions (e.g. cancer or heart disease).
  • The National Health Institute hasn’t yet determined what the patients examined ultimately died of and refers to them in general terms as Covid19-positive deaths.

Consider what these statistics mean, especially the third and final point together, followed to their logical conclusion.

99.2% of Italian Covid19-related deaths were already sick with something else, and the ISS hasn’t actually determined they died of Covid19 at all.

That’s shocking. Especially when paired with the reports that the test kits can produce false positives.

It’s entirely possible that dozens, even hundreds, of deaths in Italy (and perhaps the rest of the world) are being mistakenly attributed to Covid19 rather than the heart disease, cancer, emphysema or whichever comorbidity actually caused the death.

Let us do some simple maths. Italy currently reports 2978 pandemic-related deaths. 99.2% of those were already sick, meaning 0.8 were not. 0.8% of 2978 is just under 24. Which means, only 24 people have died whilst having no comorbidity at all. (And we don’t know their age or social circumstances).

The question becomes, why is this happening?

Why are we getting stories about overflowing funeral homes, when the worst-case Covid19 scenario (ie, no false positives or misattributed deaths) would be an increase of ~2% in the expected mortalitiy rate?

Why are we hearing rumours about Italian ICUs being over-burdened to breaking point this year, but heard no such thing when the ICUs in Lombardy were swamped with flu cases in 2017/18?

Why are the media narratives, and the actions of our governments, totally irreconcilable with statistical reality?

That should be a cause of concern for everyone.

“There’s the epidemiological study done by a Japanese research group that found the case-fatality ratio to potentially be as low as 0.04% (markedly lower even than seasonal flu). ”

This is mistake, which should not happen in this discussion and in off-guardian. Some people might think it is not a mistake, but a fake citation. Mizumoto is estimating the infection-fatality-rate (IFR) as low as 0.04% and not the case-fatality ratio (CFR) . Please read the article again. These two rates mean completely different things. Be careful with figures when you do not understand the difference.

I’m with you Orage.

Nearly 800 people died in Italy alone today.

The UK has some of the least prepared hospitals in Europe.

They were on breaking point before this virus arrived.

If someone falls ill now – with anything – and needs hospital care they are going to struggle even more to get it. This will mean more deaths and suffering for people who don’t have coronavirus.

Ok here it is.

People are entitled to their opinions, and they’re entitled to be uninformed, and we let all kinds of stuff stand on here, because we believe in free speech.

But when you keep willfully posting the same lying garbage here that has been shown to be completely false, what is going on?

1.The deaths in Italy are NOT extreme, and 99.2% of them were sick with pre-existing conditions.

2.The ISS report makes it clear they do not even know if these people died of COVID-19 or from their original ilness

3.The numbers are not excessive. People die every day – even in Italy. Look up the stats.

4. The only reason our services are struggling even more now is because so many NHS staff have been quarantined for no purpose, other than to possibly cynically create this crisis they can then blame on COVID-19

The point is, on a death certificate in the UK co-morbidities are listed in order of how they contributed to a person’s death. Corona being present is not the same as a corona fatality, and these details are not known at present. It has been reported that Italian figures are misleading because they aren’t following this practise. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/global-health/science-and-disease/have-many-coronavirus-patients-died-italy/

It is perfectly true to say that elderly people die all the time, and these annual (and until now largely ignored) statistics currently dwarf the current corona statistics.

Regarding NHS staff. Quarantine procedure obviously applies to NHS staff. The fact that significant numbers aren’t currently locked down in quarantine is good at least, and helps bring into perspective how virulently the disease is spreading. Time will, no doubt, tell.

Alternative perspective: I believe lowering the quality of life of very ill, fragile, elderly patients due to possibly knee-jerk, hysterical quarantine measures is something to be ashamed of. I wouldn’t want to leave this world cooped up, watching fear porn on the BBC!! I’d at least want the freedom to choose!

Corona being present is not the same as a corona fatality but these people would nearly all be alive if it wasn’t for contracting the virus. The co-morbitities is mentioned only as a possibly for the difference in the numbers along with the age of the population. If wrong we are still looking at a 4% death rate.

As for quality of life – I’d rather stay in for a while than die and so would my elderly relatives.

Corona being present is not the same as a corona fatality but these people would nearly all be alive if it wasn’t for contracting the virus.

How can we know this, without conducting autopsies of each individual patient? PCR tests appear to only detect presence of the virus in the body, not whether it is active. It is also questionable whether or not testing is accurate, or rather giving positive results for other corona viruses etc. Many cases of CV have been diagnosed based on symptoms alone.

As for quality of life…

But is it right to forcibly impose your choice on others? This is the crux of it. This is the gateway to authoritarianism. Whether or not CV is deadly and out of control, surely no one can deny the danger of these special measures being abused? We must not let this debate be co-opted by our strong feelings about CV right now.

Can you show me statistics of morbidity due to Corona alone, then morbidity for all, and compared to morbidity the same time last year before Corona.

Is the average age of the dead still north of 80? Asking for a friend. When you are only testing people in hospitals it tends to skew the numbers. When the authorities begin to tell you everything they know without trying to create a narrative I might start trusting them.

In the webpage of the European Monitoring of Excess Mortality for Public Health Action we can read the following statement:

European mortality bulletin week 11, 2020 [06/03/2020]

Pooled estimates of all-cause mortality show normal expected levels of mortality in the participating countries.

Of course the web page is updated with data for this last week and they are aware of the developments in Italy and Spain:

Some wonder why no increased mortality is observed in the reported mortality figures for the COVID-19 affected countries. The answer is that increased mortality that may occur primarily at subnational level or within smaller focal areas, and/or concentrated within smaller age groups, may not be detected at the overall national level.

Furthermore, there is always a few weeks of delay in death registration and reporting. Hence, the EuroMOMO mortality figures for the most recent weeks must be interpreted with some caution.Therefore, although increased mortality is currently not being observed in the EuroMOMO figures, this does not mean that increased mortality does not occur in some areas or in some age groups, including mortality related to COVID-19.

I am no expert and I have no idea how this data is made available or registered. But if The Guardian, The BBC and the rest have an update on deaths every 10 minutes, I find it odd that the body in charge of monitoring excess mortality in Europe is not receiving and registering this data with similar expedience.

It might well be that the data hasn´t been shared. But, so far, after a few weeks of the deadliest virus arriving in Europe, there is no evidence of an increased level in overall excess mortality in the continent.

It is a shame that OG has become an echo chamber for the promotion of the misinformation that this is just another seasonal flu virus. Of course time will tell but until then I am afraid untold damage will be done when you will be seen to have taken the wrong decision. No one of course can tell the future but we can see the trajectory, the science and the logic. If we are selective on what we believe, ignoring the science, the evidence and the logic then we will never get to the truth.
Anyway, I have said enough, I have been attacked by mindless bloggers and Admin has taken a very antagonistic line to what I write. So goodbye OG, I used to enjoy reading this blog, but no more.

I think the difference between you and others is that you have already accepted the premise and official narratives about this – even though at the same time, official announcements are sprayed with ‘we don’t know’ ‘we don’t yet know’, ‘ you’re not invincible so don’t go to the pub’. A media with an appalling track record to date, full of worst scenario outcomes and sensationalism. A country shut down for business.

Some science, some logic.

And of course the record of anyone who has accepted these narratives at face value in the last 25 years would be a disaster.

I think the difference here is that this site and many of its readers are looking beyond this, not accepting official narratives at face value. In fact we are looking at the science, logic, statistics and proportion.

Some of the posts might be wrong, outlandish or silly. That’s the nature of free discussion. But I think there’s enough information, resources, life experience, open mindedness and intelligent posts here to cast significant doubt over many aspects of this. And of course, those who disagree have the right of reply and respond with evidence. Or take their ball away and play somewhere else as you have opted.

The article is in fact based on science, evidence and logic.

This is an important article to read, in my view, from the Japan Times yesterday, in which it describes how the coronavirus seems to have faded from view in Japan. I live in Kyoto and yesterday I went out for lunch and the popular restaurants were packed, including a popular Chinese restaurant chain, called Osho. Some people were wearing masks, many weren’t and it seemed just like a normal day, pre-coronavirus hysteria times. Yet, Japan has had thousands and thousands of Chinese and Koreans coming all the time, especially in Kyoto. Now there are less, of course, but they were coming in huge numbers well into when the epidemic broke out in Wuhan, and you would have expected that many should have been carrying the virus. After all, Trump banned all Chinese from entering the US, and it is claimed that China was where it originated.

My daughters were told initially that school wouldn’t start in April, but later, but now they have been informed that classes will start as usual. This seems to undermine the narrative that this is a very dangerous, deadly outbreak, in my view.

I’m not sure about Ben’s stats but here’s mine:

World Population 7,600,000,000.00
Number of People In World Who Die Every Year 57,000,000.00

Population of Italy 60,550,075.00
Percentage of World Population 0.80
Approximate Death Rate In Italy Every Year 10.6 per 1,000
Average Deaths in Italy Every Year 10.6 * 60,550 = 641,830
Average Deaths per Day in Italy 641,830 / 365 = 1,785

(Added to my previous post.)

Thanks Phil, yours are better than mine

I made an error in the word population, it is 7.7 as you say, so my final figure should have been about 1,150

I could not find a specific death rate for Italy so surmised it from the global average, but I didn’t know there are wide variations per country, a lesson for me.

Just did some quick calculations after seeing the convoy of military trucks needed to take the bodies of the dead in Italy somewhere. In approximately 15 days Italy has had about 4,000 deaths from the virus and therefore need a convoy of military trucks to move the huge amount of dead bodies. On a normal non-covid day approximately 1,785 people normally die in Italy. In 15 days that would be about 26,775 people. What do they do with those bodies? (The stats are freely and easily available from a number of sources on the internet.)

Virus Guy
Virus Guy

The trucks were not taking bodies. You are being inundated with false stories to quell you into accepting what looks increasingly like a worldwide imposition of martial law.

The only slightly reliable data comes from the various health institutes, such as the Italian ISS. Their figures in no way support the hysterical lies and rumors such as this.

Ben McDonnell

It looks like a single incident in which a backlog of 40 bodies in coffins were taken to the next crematorium further away. The local crematorium could only manage 12 a day so this would be more about saving a few days wait. Sad but hardly relevant to the bigger picture presented.

JudyJ
JudyJ

The scaremongering (BBC?) TV report last night from a hospital in Bergamo was another example of how the death rate may be being over-hyped. The hospital morgue had about 12 coffins in it and we were reliably informed how unusual this was. Indeed, it may well have been unusual in the normal course of events but, arguably, not for the reasons being implied.

First, it wasn’t clarified as to when the first of those coffins was placed there…hours or days before? Even if it was only hours – quite possible – the report failed to mention that, until this ‘crisis’ occurred, dead bodies would have been taken away quickly and individually on an ad hoc basis by undertakers employed by bereaved families, keeping the cumulative morgue numbers down.

Since the ‘crisis’, the edict is that all Covid-19 victims have to be cremated at a particular crematorium on certain days, and they are transported there together (whether or not in military vehicles) by a procedure determined by the local authorities with little input from the bereaved families. It would therefore be necessary and logical for bodies to be accumulated ready for transportation en masse.

As always, the context of claims is crucial if the correct inference is to have any chance of being drawn, and it is context that is sadly lacking in the media coverage of events.

May I contribute my basic maths here to confirm what the article is saying
World population 8.8 billion world deaths per day 150,000
Italian population 60 million expected Italian deaths per day therefore (150,000 x 60,000,000) / 8.8,000,000,000
=1000

So today for example record Italian deaths reported due to Coronavirus 627 out of 1000 normally expected, ( not to mention that it’s winter) OR 99% of (627 out 1000 deaths), could have been due to something else which they were already suffering from and would have killed them. I get that.

However 2 days old Lombardy figures alone were 319 deaths in a population 1/6 that of the whole of Italy. Normally expected deaths would have been 166.6. A bit more serious but of course an identical conclusion in each area could also mean that in Lombardy itself, again these deaths could 99% have been due to another pre existing cause, and death in the elderly is commonly a combination of several factors anyway and it can be academic which condition actually caused the death. The only outstanding factor is that in Lombardy the death rate has risen above average however you look at it.

But no one is telling us what the occasional variations over time can peak at to get that average of 166.6.

Have I at least got the arithmetic right? Not even maths, just simple arithmetic.

There are layers to the ‘reality’ in which many have born into and lived that are not as believed – and yet we live from our beliefs and defend them.
whole it can be accessed whale.to has a lot of the history we are not told – as well as models for disease that are more toxicological than virological – and compounded by fear and control reactions – become a sort of parasitic complex, that protects and controls in the name of fear.
“It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!” – Upton Sinclair

How much more so when your life or freedom and well being as you know it, depends on seeing in compliance with defined social parameters?

The business in hand is working a socio-political shift to another kind of ‘order’.
If you accept the official narrative makes sense, then the modelled expectation of more deaths justifies the undermining of our actual economy. But one can as readily model the results of mass poverty to a much worse outcome than another way for the very old and the immune weakened to reach their tipping point.

We have an official WHO derived narrative dictate of protection that is itself protected against free speech. The pattern is characteristic – and recognisable as the blocking and suppression of symptoms deemed threat – if only for not conforming and complying to orders.

The Net may soon be shut down in a number of ways – one of which is to terrorise by example. Another to intimidate or restrict, penalise or deny our voice and shape our behaviour and thought. Is it all about fear and control?

Regardless the conditions – learn to give and live the meanings that support life.
If life is our true desire – there is our highest alignment.

Those who go about it in destructive ways see life as the result of gaining or regaining power or control and or overcoming fear, threat and conflict and defend it!

You’re also spot on that… ‘the business in hand is working a socio political shift to another kind of order’.

I saw a passing reference to Graham – perhaps yours – but I cant/dont click everything – but I did note the name and picked up on the contextual inferences.

Yes, the bid for overt power through COVert control is the need to deny all others.

The term resistance can be used with different meanings – and with very different outcomes accordingly.

Within the mind of fear, (separateness) and control, (defence, or order under threat), is a realm of action and reaction, as polarised forces become polarised identities locked into strictures of paralysis that bring on death, or release of energy from structure that no longer serves life.

Resistance as rebellion seeks to take power from – in order to get – or get rid of – for private agenda – whether an elite coterie or a working of the mob by those who seek power under ‘moral justification’ or are fed such by rival contenders who use them.

To the binary mind of separated things, events, enemies, viruses, or whatever, everything is ‘flagged’ to serve the current ‘threat-driven cause’ from which sympathy, funding, support and the conditions in which to exercise power are momentarily held, but which immediately shift to new forms because they are without substance or support in truth.

The developing of consciousness is the recognition of patterns, contexts and purposes that reveal more of life than the flagged reality of conditioned experience, but are still purposed to the fear-threat and GET mind until the consciousness recognises embrace of a universal quality of existence that until then had been discarded and in a sense turned away from in seeking for a self set in image and form.

Recognising and releasing the pattern of an outmoded stage of conscious development can itself be experienced as conflicted – even though there is no communication between two opposing functions relating to the same being. The idea of resisting temptation to fear and the deceits of fear, that deliver us to misery via any kind of ruse, is the residual hankering for a self-driven world that cannot be, but may seem to be – yet has no peace in it and cost the world we would otherwise share in the creative challenge of co-creating within life – rather than set over others and life.

If we recognise fear-deceit as a ‘temptation’ then we are no longer tempted – but have uncovered a wish or belief that we still identifying in, for whatever reasons of our own.
But if we lose such mindfulness to narrative framing in struggle, then the mind of the attempt to eradicate, deny or suppress the ‘temptation’ will effectively enact its own deceit as the morally justified sense of self GOTTEN from polarising against the feared and hated.

‘Resist ye not evil’ is a profound revelation to the willingness to release our investment in its propagation through our own reactive self-protection.

But resisting temptation to be baited by reaction, is the vigilance for peace, against division. Peace is part of your being, but the reactive consciousness seeks it outside in conditions of the always changing, and fights for the conditions it assigns as the restoring of power, rights and face – or self-vindication.

To be whole in what we do or say is simply to align in the true movement of our being and not a matter of all the king’s horses and all the king’s men trying to put life together again.

How do we relate to the blind or selfish urges that we uncover in ourself?
Are they such, or are they flagged as such by ‘moral guilting’ of a socialising that instils a control layer over everything that lives?
How do we open and grow trust if we are also the policement AND the criminal?

Mindfulness is not my preferred term, but the term is not the point. The point is an open and uncluttered space of awareness in which to discern the true movement of being from the overlayering or overriding of naked and direct knowing by the shift into narratived identity.

Unless we open this within our self, we will not serve its opening in our relationships. But as we see another is feedback to our own mind of interpretation, and needs to be re-cognised as such instead of reacted from as if ‘THE WORLD UNDER WHICH IS THE ONLY SURVIVAL’.

The War On Consciousness is its self-undermining – as a sense of limiting self-differentiation that has grown monstrous, cancerous or parasitic to the whole.
But what is healing is true alignment through which a wholeness of being communicates presence. And then only as each step or moment of willingness allows.

What would you do if you have a trillion dollar budget annually?
What would you do if you have a trillion dollar budget annually /AND/ there are very strict laws that guarantee you immunity from prosecution for whatever you can do? Moreover, what would you do when there are very strict systems in place to ensure whatever you do remain TOP TOP TOP SECRET???

If you can answer this question then many mysteries become self-explanatory!

* Bonus: what would you do, on top of the above, you’re also guaranteed by the Heavens that GOD is actually on your side.
