Scott Davidson, the CEO of Indianapolis-based insurance company OneAmerica, said last week that the death rate in Indiana is up a stunning 40% from pre-pandemic levels among working-age people.
The shocking admission by Davidson was made during an online news conference that was organized by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce, reports TheCenterSquare.
Davidson said in the online conference on December 30th:
“We are seeing, right now, the highest death rates we have seen in the history of this business – not just at OneAmerica. The data is consistent across every player in that business.
What we just saw in the third quarter, and we’re seeing it continue into the fourth quarter, is that death rates are up 40% over what they were pre-pandemic.”
According to Davidson, the increase in deaths represents “huge, huge numbers,” and the deaths are not in the old, but in “primarily working-age people 18 to 64”.
“Just to give you an idea of how bad that is, a three-sigma or a one-in-200-year catastrophe would be a 10% increase over pre-pandemic. So 40% is just unheard of.”
The CEO added that the increase is not a result of the pandemic as most of the claims are not for COVID-19 deaths.
Dr. Lindsay Weaver, Indiana’s chief medical officer, said at a news conference with Gov. Eric Holcomb on Wednesday that the number of hospitalizations in Indiana is now higher than before the COVID-19 vaccine was introduced a year ago, and in fact, is higher than it’s been in the past five years.
Knowing exactly how many people have died due to the COVID vaccine is hard to tell. A Columbia University study from October 2021 estimated the death toll at 187,000 in the US alone. However, the official reporting system in the US that keeps track of unfavorable or unintended events after vaccination, VAERS, puts this number at only 21,000, which is consistent with known under-reporting issues.
