Debunked: UK undertaker's claim that Covid vaccine is responsible for spike in deaths

Milton Keynes-based funeral director/undertaker John O'Looney is a vocal Covid denier who has also claimed that he witnessed a massive spike in the death rate once the vaccine began to be administered - something he says he had predicted two or three months previously.

What's actually going on, however, seems to be a mixture of confirmation bias, natural death rate trends, and ignoring a wave of Covid cases that started in November.

First of all, here's a chart showing death rates in England and Wales by month:

As we can see, January to March - when he says "the death rate went through the roof" - is always the period of year with the highest number of deaths. In this chart, even before Covid, January experienced an average of around 25% more deaths than December, with 2017/2018 showing around a 42% increase.

That's part one of the explanation. Part two is due to a wave of coronavirus cases between November and February. Here's the chart showing cases for Milton Keynes, peaking on December the 29th with 582 cases:

And here's the chart showing deaths, with the peak occuring the 12th-14th of January (32 deaths over those 3 days):

As we can see, number of cases and number of deaths are very closely linked, with the deaths curve generally following, as expected, around two weeks after the cases curve.

One can also view data for the number of vaccinations -

- and notice that there is no correlation between number of vaccinations and number of deaths.

In a nutshell: O'Looney was already deep down the rabbit hole; he had a theory that deaths would increase because of the vaccine (he believes it's a "cull" of the most vulnerable); and when a Covid wave somewhat coincided with the roll out of the vaccine (though not really) he put two and two together, ignored natural seasonal variations, and came up with "conspiracy".

(Note: searches for O'Looney show him giving interviews to the BBC during the early days of the coronavirus pandemic. He has claimed, however, that he was told the answers he was expected to give - as well as how to dress - so as to support the government narrative.)
