Just 100 people have died from Covid: a video posted on Facebook by an anti-government campaigner based on health department standards has gone viral

Dublin: The video, which was filmed with official documents showing that only 100 people died of covid infection in Ireland, went viral in a matter of seconds.

The video, which was recorded live, was viewed by 400,000 people, shared by 13,000 people, and commented by about 4,000 people.

The video was posted on his Facebook page by Ben Gilroy an anti – government campaigner based on health department standards for estimating death. Gilroy made the remarks in front of a media outlet in Dublin.

In the video, Gilroy quotes figures from the Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC), a state agency that regularly publishes statistics on the virus in Ireland.

HPSC’s latest report, published yesterday, states that 1,677 of the 1,777 deaths related to Covid-19 to date had other underlying health problems. There is no such mention of remaining 100 people. There is no need for any other reason to discuss the video that came out along with the screenshot of the HPSC report extensively.

In the video, Gilroy establishes that only 100 people have died from Covid-19, based on government records. Only 100 people died of Covid infection.

Gilroy points out that the vast majority of deaths are due to poor health. Gilroy claims that they did not actually die because of the virus infection. He says most of those who die from the virus are elderly. He alleges that the death toll is inflated.

He argues that the figures are being deliberately increased for business-related public health restrictions, pubs closures and travel bans.

About 100 people have died in this country due to Covid. And yet government have closed the whole country, says Gilory.

Government records show that most of the dead were over 70 years of age. He said the age of the dead was 17 to 105 and the average age of the dead was 84, according to HPSC figures.

A spokesman for the Department of Health said in a statement that it was true that the vast majority of people in Ireland who died of covid had basic health problems.

It should be noted that one-third of people (32%) in Ireland have a long-term health condition. Every person with a basic medical condition and their life is important.

People with medical conditions who died of Covid-19 would have lived longer if they had not been affected by it. The spokesman also explained that post-covid-19 syndrome is an active area of ​​research.

There are more than 30 conditions that are part of Ireland’s Covid-19 observation data. The necessary information is collected. These conditions range from long-term aspirin therapy to high blood pressure to cancer, cerebral palsy and pregnancy.

Ireland follows the guidelines of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the European Center for Disease Control (ECDC) for estimating Covid-19 deaths. Anyone can read this guidelines.

A death due to Covid is clinically defined for observational purposes. Death due to Covid does not cause another disease (e.g. cancer). If a cancer patient dies of Covid, the previous conditions should be considered independently.

Similar claims have been made in many other countries, including the US, about Covid-19 death statistics. According to the health department, the issue was mentioned in the video itself.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently reported similar rumors about the official Covid-19 death toll in the United States. One such post retweeted by US President Trump was removed by Twitter for violating its guidelines.

As reported by BBC News, it is true to say that no other disease is mentioned except for 6% of all death certificates in the U.S. cited by Covid-19.

However, 92% of deaths are attributed to Covid-19 deaths because a patient may have had respiratory problems or conditions such as diabetes. But the main cause of death is Covid-19.

The government says Ireland has reported similar deaths from the virus. At the same time, the health commission Hiqa agreed that there could be a slight exaggeration in Covid’s death estimate in Ireland.
