This Is Strange: Report Shows 2020 With Lowest Number Of Recorded US Deaths Since 2009

(Gateway Pundit) – Back in June we reported that according to the latest data,US mortalities in 2020 were not materially different from the previous 5 years.

We posted updated data through week 34 in the 2019-2020 season.

Now there is a new report at by Colleen Huber, NMD, that reveals total US deaths this year are actually lower than annual US deaths in 20 of the last 21 years.

According to

As of this writing, 32 weeks have elapsed in 2020. However, for each previous year, 52 weeks have already elapsed. How then can we compare deaths from all causes in 2020 to previous years?

I divided the total number of deaths for each year by the number of weeks. That is 52 weeks for all years, except for 2020, in which 32 weeks have elapsed as of this past Saturday, August 8, 2020, which is the most recently updated week in the CDC data cited. This gives us the average number of deaths per week for each of those years, and allows a meaningful comparison between 2020 and prior years.

CDC data provides deaths from all causes for all previous years in the 21st century. (6) (7) The CDC also provides data for all-cause deaths in 2020. (8)

​Column D of Table 1 shows the total deaths divided by the number of weeks in the year to obtain an average number of deaths for each week in that particular year. That is calculated for all 21 years (2000 through 2020). 32 weeks for 2020 is highlighted to draw attention to that difference from the other years.

It is important to factor in the growing US population over the last two decades. The US population for each year is given in Column E.

Column G shows the ratio of total weekly deaths per US population for each of the first 21 years of the 21st century.

A comparison of the percentages in Column G are best seen in Graph 1 below.

It should be noted that the CDC estimates that at least 75% of all deaths have been reported and tallied within eight weeks. Therefore, there is likely little difference from the currently displayed numbers, and the numbers that will ultimately be displayed.

Dr. Huber concludes her report with this analysis:

If COVID-19 is genuinely the deadly pandemic that it is widely thought to be, then total deaths would not only be a little higher than usual, but would be much greater during the period of its peak incidence and closely following weeks. It is not possible to have a deadly pandemic rage through a population without increasing the total number of all-cause deaths during the year of its peak incidence, because there is no reason for alternate causes of death, (heart disease, cancer, etc) to simultaneously decline. Therefore, if deaths are not significantly increased above previous years for a given region, then there has been no pandemic, nor even an epidemic there.

On the contrary, what has been found is that so far there are fewer deaths per week in 2020, than in any other year since 2009. Although some of this lower death rate may be due to reporting lag, that lag is likely too small to explain the considerably lower weekly death rate in 2020 than in previous years.

It seems that there is no pandemic in 2020 of COVID-19 or of anything else, at least not in the United States.


  1. Admiring the persistence yyou put into your bllg and in depth
    information you provide. It’s nice to come across a blog every onche in a while
    that isn’t the same unwanted rehashed information. Great read!

    I’ve bookmarked your site andd I’m adding your RSS feds to my Google account.

  2. There is another important item to note in the trend line. The death rate fell during the Bush 2 years, rose dramatically during the Obama years, flat lined (pun intended) in the first two Trump years and then declined dramatically in 2020.

    We were told that deaths due to the economic crisis, or rather the failure of the Obama/Biden ‘recovery’ plans/programs, were a myth. A right wing conspiracy.

    Yes, the proof is right there. As the Trump programs took effect, the death rate dropped.

    Open the economy. Save lives.

  3. The reason this SUPPOSED PANDEMIC was so severe is because the sheeple bought into it, without questioning anything. If the sheeple change their woke minds this would disappear faster than a dirty diaper. As far as a vaccine, virus’s mutate and change as they are passed along, what works today may not work tomorrow. Just think back to the flu shots last year that we just HAD TO HAVE, almost completely worthless when a different strain of the flu showed up. As far as lockdowns, quarantines, masks and social distancing, how come the virus is still here and spreading. A virus has to run it’s course, the only question is, how long do you want to take to get the end result which be the same. How much suffering and economic damage do you want to inflict on the people and the economy

  4. To CEV : You are assuming that the posted yearly totals wait 8 weeks every year to get more accurate death totals for each year. That may or may not be true. If all the CDC is trying to do with the numbers is to compare deaths by year they may cut off the reporting date at 12/31 since yearly comparisons would still be accurate if you did it the same way every year.

  5. There is something confusing about the data : Why do the numbers for total deaths in the first chart from the CDC average 1.8 – 2 million per year but the chart comparing the totals per week of the last 21 years average 2.4 -2.5 million per year? I am not trying to dispute this analysis I am just trying to fully understand it. Help?

  6. If reporting is 8 weeks behind, you would need to estimate and add about the same number of deaths as the increase in the total deaths over the prior 8 weeks. 8/32 is .25 or 25% so current year total deaths of 1,627,000 x .25 = 407,000. Add that to 1,627,000 = ,2,034,000 which would be a closer estimate of 2020 total deaths.
    Another likely error is assuming that deaths are not seasonal. For example, it could be that some months are deadlier because of flus etc.
    A better / different approach would be to compare the same 32 week total death over last 20 years. Even that could be adjusted for unusual events such as wars, disasters, etc. We havent had many large death number events one the period.
    Another way would be to break out the numbers of deaths from the ten largest causes into separate columns. Thus isolating any new or major outliers.

  7. It just proves you can’t believe anything you hear about covid. With it being so politicized everyone lies about the numbers so it looks like what they want it too. The way theey change their stories every week you can’t believe them. Like with hydroxychloroquine European countries have been using it with great success. That drug has been in use now for 65 years. Been save for 65 years but now that they think it would make Trump look good it is not save and kills people. Google it and it will tell you it is save and it works.

  8. The number is lower because everyone is locked up at home and thus traffic fatalities are way down compared to previous years. But the virus is also not as lethal as the media,democrats and Facui would have us believe.

  9. Hummm….and the house of cards starts to tumble. It just pisses me off that according to the “Experts” this declared pandemic, which was supposed to wipe out the worlds population, hasn’t even come close to the deaths from influenza every year. SO tired of the lies.

  10. I wish this information would seep into the media coverage of this so-called pandemic. But then, the Left’s political agenda would suffer.

  11. I do not believe, with Gate’s track record, that the vaccine financed and produced by his organization would be safe to take.

  12. My last pay check was $8750 just ecom working 12 hours for every week. My neighbor have found the estimation of $15k for a long time and she works around 20 hours for seven days. I can not trust how direct it was once I tried it information..
