Charlie Kirk, a conservative commentator and the creator of Turning Point USA, said on the show “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Fox News that COVID-19 immunizations are contributing to rising mortality rates in the United States over the past few years. Carlson and Kirk based their ludicrous conjecture on the statistics of the life insurance business OneAmerica, whose CEO, J Scott Davison, stated earlier this month that death rates have increased by 40 percent among persons ages 18-64 when compared to levels that existed prior to the outbreak.
“We deserve answers, and some people might speculate, ‘Hey, does this have anything to do with the fact that we might have done a mass inoculation strategy?’” “We deserve answers,” Tucker Carlson, host of Fox News, was questioned by Kirk. Carlson, who has in the past made assertions that are analogous to this one, did not contradict his guest’s assertion in any way. We can hear Kirk claiming that “We have a 40 percent spike in death, and it’s not because to COVID” on the television. However, Davison did NOT state that there was no connection to COVID. In point of fact, Davison argued that the data demonstrates COVID deaths among Americans of working age are severely overstated.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an increased number of fatalities are either directly or indirectly connected with COVID-19. The spike in mortality is mostly attributable to COVID-19, either as a direct result of the disease itself or as a result of additional reasons that have arisen as a result of a lack of access to adequate health care or of overcrowded health care systems.
