Re: Recent Excessive Deaths in Irish Nursing Homes
We are contacting you as Teachta Dála and a sitting member of Dáil Éireann.
We wish to make you aware of a very serious rise in the number of nursing home deaths (excess deaths) for the three-week period beginning at the end January 2021. The attached chart (page 3) shows 160 deaths from a selection of just 10 of the 572 HIQA registered nursing homes that we studied during the period mentioned. In comparison there were only a small number of deaths in those same nursing homes during December 2020 and January 2021. Considering the overall reduction in COVID-19 related deaths, hospitalisations and positive PCR tests for the same period, the dramatic rise in deaths gives us great cause for concern. Please refer to the attached graph on page 4 showing data for these key trends.
While this sudden unexplained rise in nursing home deaths may be due to a number of factors, we found that the majority of these excess deaths occurred directly after the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccination programme for nursing homes and may indicate a serious adverse drug reaction to the vaccine. If an adverse reaction to the vaccinations has contributed to these deaths, it has the potential to adversely affect the health of all Irish citizens due to the planned ongoing rollout to every citizen.
Please see attached graphs and tables with data on deaths for two of the nursing homes which we have studied in more detail as follows: -
We have studied these nursing home deaths in great detail utilising RIP.ie death notices. We have also obtained a number of death records for these deaths from the GRO to confirm the details, which are referenced in the tables (page 5 & 7) and these confirm the RIP.ie data.
On Tuesday 9th March 2021 we notified this situation to:-
- An Taoiseach, Micheál Martin
- Health Minister, Deputy Stephen Donnelly
- Director General of the HSE, Mr. Paul Reid
- Chief Executive Officer of HIQA, Mr. Phelim Quinn
- Chief Executive of the HPRA, Dr. Lorraine Nolan,
Having had no appropriate response from any of the above parties, we request your assistance in recommending an immediate suspension of the National COVID-19 Vaccination Programme rollout as a precautionary measure. The high numbers of recent deaths in nursing homes must be fully investigated and explained to ensure that the vaccinations are not contributing to the recent excessive number of deaths.
Many of our members are also your constituents who elected you to Dáil Éireann in good faith. We now request you to act on our behalf by urgently raising this matter either directly with the Taoiseach and Minister for Health or during Dáil questions.
We eagerly await your response to this urgent situation.
