Dutch Research Paper Links COVID-19 mRNA Vaccination Rates to Increases in All-Cause Mortality

Higher use of COVID-19 mRNA shots correlates with an increase in all-cause mortality, according (https://www.researchgate.net/publication/361818561_Covid-19_vaccinations_and_all-cause_mortality_-a_long-term_differential_analysis_among_municipalities) to a new preprint paper from a Dutch researcher. The paper found a “vaccination-correlated mortality rate” of about 5% of total mortality, meaning that 5% of deaths were skewed in patterns that reflected COVID-19 vaccination rates. However, the pattern does not prove that COVID-19 mRNA injections actually caused those deaths, that the correlation exists.
