COVID came in 2020. In the chart above there appears to be no increase in the number of deaths in 2020. In 2021 there was a slight increase but the largest increase is in 2022. New Zealand began mandating vaccines in late 2021 for employment eligibility.
To suggest that the number of COVID deaths was minimal in 2020 and 2021 and suddenly increased in 2022 appears to be a misdiagnosis. Timing alone proves this wrong.
An increase in deaths in New Zealand occurred after the COVID-19 vaccine mandate. No wonder the crazy totalitarian leader of New Zealand, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, recently resigned. She knows.
