Study Finds That India Might Have Half Of All COVID-19 Deaths Worldwide

Illustrative Image

Written by Eric Zuesse

On July 20th, an analysis that was published of India’s “excess mortality estimates from three different data sources from the pandemic’s start through June 2021 … yields an estimate of 4.9 million excess deaths.” As-of July 20th, the total number of deaths that had been officially reported worldwide from Covid-19 was 4,115,391, and only 414,513 (10%) of those were in India. If this new study is correct, then the possibility exists that around half of all deaths that have occurred, thus far, from Covid-19, could be in India, not merely the currently existing 10% that’s shown in the official figures.

This study doesn’t discuss why the actual number of deaths in India from Covid-19 might be around ten times higher than the official Indian figures, but one reason might be a false attribution of India’s greatly increased death-rate from the Covid-19 epidemic not to Covid-19 but to other causes, such as to Covid-19-related illnesses.

The new study is titled “Three New Estimates of India’s All-Cause Excess Mortality during the COVID-19 Pandemic”, and the detailed version of it can be downloaded here.   The study was funded by U.S.-and-allied billionaires and their foundations and corporations, and by governments that those billionaires also might control. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that its methodology is in any way unscientific or otherwise dubious. The study raises serious questions — it does not, in and of itself, answer any. It’s a serious scientific study.

On 1 August 2020, I headlined “India and Brazil Are Now the Global Worst Coronavirus Nations”, and reported that, “India and Brazil have now overtaken the United States as the world’s worst performers at controlling the cononavirus-19 plague. The chart of the numbers of daily new cases in India shows the daily count soaring more than in any other country except Brazil, whereas in the United States, the daily number of new cases has plateaued ever since it hit 72,278 on July 10th, three weeks ago.” At that time, there was great pressure upon India’s Government to stop the alarming acceleration in the daily numbers of people who were officially counted as being patients (active cases) from the disease, and of dying from it. One way that a government can deal with such pressures is by mis-classifying cases, and deaths, from a disease, as being due to other causes, instead.

Modi and his Zionist masters have destroyed India as now they are spying on Congress politicians with Mossad supplied Pegasus spyware. India used to have basic health care but the Jew model of privatisations has ruined everything.

Either India get usury loans or India suffer.
Therefore Modi choose the usury loans and tricks from Israel to show he is also English deep in his heart, and that India can also play cricket and do the same thing as England is doing it.

That is not true, India under quasi socialist nationalistic Congress governments was doing quite well in terms of self-sufficiency and we had the green revolution in farming and produced most consumer goods. In the 90’s post USSR collapse the US, Jews and the money hungry west focused on destabilizing India by bringing in the destructive materialistic “globalization” and Indian traditional society was ruined under Manmohan Singh who was on CIA payroll as here his successors. Modi is an extremist uneducated tea stall (Chai Wallah) thug who was recruited by the Jews to fan religious divisions and tensions. Now the US and west have this insane plan to use India as cannon fodder to fight China as we were used by the criminal plundering British empire that impoverished India and killed over 30 million in the racist famines. The west has no morals and under Jew control it is only interested in plundering the developing world. India in the past 20 years has more poverty and unequal income distribution as in the US and our societal values have been ruined. The Jews have destroyed India and a backlash is now brewing like in most of eastern Europe. Indian news media showed news from Poland and Hungary where mass demonstrations were blaming the Jews for spreading the Covid Virus and profiting from it and using to turn the world into a global gulag. People need to open their eyes to Zionist agenda which goes against humanity.


Have you ever been to India? Do you know a thing about India? No.

No, he just posts nonsense and luckily no one reads it. India has suffered the most under IMF and World bank Jew agenda. Our society is being torn apart by materialism, pornography, social and health sector collapse while Modi’s billionaire corrupt masters transfer Indian wealth overseas, just like the British did.


hendu-pak get in trouble, Iran makes money…….simple as……


there are no viruses at all. dyor ALREADY!

Virtually none of those people died of the pretend virus.
They most likely died from bad sanitation lack of food or the flu.


I will tell you once thing they died of en masse – oxygen shortage caused by the Modi regime diverting medical oxygen to industries. Another thing that died of was the Modi regime’s campaign to privatise health care. Private hospitals never build excess capacity, because it would be a loss for them almost all the time. So anything at all that requires more bed space and oxygen will kill huge numbers.

Ashok Varma

India post partition had a reasonable rural health care system where still most of the population lives, but successive US installed governments since Manmohan Singh’s sell out of India and privatization destroyed the public health system and massive corruption now has set in every sector of economy, Modi’s masters like Adani, Mittal and the CIA backed Baba Ramdev now dictate every segment of Indian ruined society. Now Jews openly tap all opposition phones and India has turned into a Zionist colony.


Meanwhile the gibbering globetrotting genocidal Gujarati gangster government of Narendrabhai Damodardasbhai Modi is bust spying on journalists, opposition politicians, and even a virologist with zio Pegasus spyware.

By the way, where is Proud Hindu?

Glancing over the data, a slowly rising death toll can be noted starting spring 2019, with a big dip in spring/summer 2020 (plandemic times), and a sharper rise starting spring 2021, especially for elderly people. What started in the winter 2020/21? 3 Guesses…
A correlation with the “vaccination” campaign can be clearly seen, even if the “researchers” would suggest that “In the second wave, some of the IFR surge might have been moderated by vaccinations” in a foot note, that being practically the only mention of “vaccines” in the whole “study”.
At least mr. Zuesse mentioned the “sponsors”… Guess what the “researcher”‘s conclusion might be…

EU must not be USA slave

Yet at january 2020 these were 6.4billions and now we are over 8billions on this wrecked planet, civic, vaxx, wars etc.

So it is all a hoax and overbreeding will destroy the World.
