In late 2021, a surge in insurance claims had indicated a mysterious spike in deaths among young adults ages 18-49 years old that could not be entirely explained by the Covid pandemic.
Insurance companies were reporting an “overwhelming” and “unexplained” increase in claims for 18-49 year-olds, according to a KUSI report.
KUSI interviewed Dr. Kelly Victory, who explained the concerning rates of increase in reported myocardial infarction, Bell’s palsy, and certain neurological conditions.
“This information became available to me or on my radar… following a hearing with Senator Ron Johnson, who was looking at sort of what he calls a second opinion on the entire response to the COVID pandemic,” Dr. Victory said. “The medical data was released by three career military physicians who got the information from the military database that collects what we call ICD codes, which are diagnosis codes. And these physicians had a feeling, they believed based on their own observation, that they were seeing a significant uptick in certain conditions.”
