Deaths whilst isolating at home
From: Chuck Schooner
Dear Ministry of Health,
To date I think there have been three deaths whilst isolating at home with Covid-19
Can you please confirm if any of these deaths whilst isolating at home occurred within 21 days of the deceased receiving a first or second shot of the experimental gene therapy?
If the answer is yes then where have their deaths been recorded?
Put in the observed versus expected deaths?
Recorded as a vaccine death?
Have these been double counted anywhere? Prior to mass vaccinations over 99% of people recovered and people generally had time to seek medical attention. So I’m assuming these deaths at home related to sudden events. Please provide the cause of death - cardiac, stroke, embolism etc
