During 2020, Dagsrevyen [News by the governmental Norwegian Broadcasting Company] thaught us to follow the number of deaths from day to day and week to week. This is not the case today, in spite of the fact that it is now, in 2022 that the deviations in the number of deaths is worth discussion. 2020 was a normal year – contrasting the striking headlines. The year 2022 is a statistical sensation. But this statistical sensation is not to be found on the newspapers’s front pages.

Numbers from Statistisk Sentralbyrå show that the number of deaths so far in 2022 exceeds the average for the years 2015-2021 by 10 %.

We have no knowledge of anything like this having happened before.

Here are the raw numbers from Statistisk Sentralbyrå (SSB):

Deaths by gender, age and week. Preliminary numbers 2000-2022

From these numbers we have extracted the following table:

[Translation: 07995: Dead persons. Preliminary numbers, by gender, age, week, statistival variable and year. On the left column: Both genders, all ages]

We have summed up the columns and calculated the average for the years 2015-2022. We get the following:

[Translation of the last row: Average 2015-2021: 22216. 2022: 2192 above the aveage].

We see that 2020, the great year of panic, with its 21,956 deaths, is below average for the period 2015-2021. To put it mildly – that is not the impression we got from media and the authorities.

But we also see that the big sensation is the year 2022. Hitherto 2 192 more humans have died than the average for the period we look at – that means 10 % more deaths. We have no knowledge of anything like this having happened before.

Here is the table in graphical form:

[Thanslation: Above the graph: Deaths in Norway 2015-2022, week 1-28. Below the graph: Source: SSB. Graph: steigan.no]

These data makes one look for an explanation. What has happened that has caused a sudden and abnormal increase in the number of deths? This has to be clearified. Authorities, health experts and politicians cannot let this pass without providing an explanation.

A reasonable presumtion is that this increase in the number of deaths is related to the vaccines, that is the vaccine damages. It is, however, a presumtion, even though it s a reasonable one. What we need now is thorough analysis of the actual deaths. What makes people die in such unusually large numbers?

The hospitals see an increase in the number of acutely ill persons, but do not know why

The magazine Sykepleien writes: During the month of June this year, the number of patients to the department for acutely ill patients at St. Olavs hospital increased by 14 per cent.
Magasinet Sykepleien skriver: I juni måned i år økte antallet pasienter til akuttmottaket ved St. Olavs hospital med 14 prosent.

Sykehuset Innlandet in readiness

Sykehuset Innlandet [The hospital in Innlandet county] has increased its perparedness. An unusually large nuber of hospitalizations of acutely ill patients has caused the increase in preparedness. An unusually high number of hospitalisations of acutely ill persons and a revitalisation of the corona pandemic is the stated cause.

– We first realized this at Gjøvik two weeks ago. We then used our second hospital in order to relieve. The two last days we have also had capacity problems at our other hospitals, says functioning director for medicine and health profession Siv Cathrine Høymork to Oppland Arbeiderblad.

The hospitalisation of acutely ill persons adds up with a revitalisation of the corona pandemic and vacation.

Got negative response

Sykehuset Innlandet asked health companies located nearby for help in order to relieve, but got a negative response.

– The situation was equally demanding for them, and they lacked the capacity needed to relieve us. They too experience an unusually high number of hospitalisations of acytely ill persons. We see that the same thing happens in Trondheim, Stavanger and Oslo, Høymork says.

Even St. Olavs hospital in Trondheim have capacity challenges this summer.

– We also see an increase in the influx of acutely ill persons to the hospital, assisting professional director at St. Olavs hospital, Birger Endreseth writes in an e-mail to Sykepleien.

– How large is the increase in the number of acutely ill persons?

– During June this year, the number of patients at the reception for acutely ill persons increased by 14 per cent from the existing top level, which was June 2021. Compared with the level before the pandemic we see an increase by 18 per cent.

And what is the cause?

– We still do not know the cause of the increase. We only know that we get many patients with quite many kinds of diseases, the hospital replies in an e-mail to Sykepleien.
