Sudden Deaths And Covid-19 Vaccines: Book Connects The Dots

Former Wall Street financier Edward Dowd's investigation raises critical questions about the Covid vaccine narrative

A Special Report

April 3, 2023: It’s been well over two years since Covid-19 vaccines were rolled out for mass use. Logical-thinking people have been warning the public since the start of the vaccination drive, saying the jabs could be harmful for many recipients since they were under-tested at the time of their commercial-use approval.

Recently, a disturbing book by Wall Street financier Edward Dowd pieces together an unusual pattern that appears to corroborate the misgivings aired by critics of coronavirus vaccines.

In the 216-page book, titled Cause Unknown: The Epidemic of Sudden Deaths in 2021 and 2022, Hawaii-based Dowd assembled dozens of news reported by the mainstream media about unexpected and unexplained deaths among Covid-vaccinated people, thereby persuasively building a case about the vaccines’ suspected lack of safety.


Official data recorded by various government and non-government bodies around the world are showing a steady uptick in instances of deaths and injuries among healthy people who took the Covid-19 jab. That apart, people are increasingly getting to learn first-hand about an unusual rise in the number of heart-related issues, cardiac arrests, and nerve-related problems since 2021 – the year the vaccination drive started.

Both these trends – freely accessible verified data, and first-hand accounts and ground reports – aren’t making the public sit up and take notice. That’s because influential mainstream media outlets, thanks to a combination of agenda, fear, and sheer ignorance, aren’t connecting the dots for the masses to see.

This is precisely the information gap that Dowd’s book aims to address.

Dowd, who successfully helmed financial titan Blackrock for 10 years, picked up the scattered pieces and put them together to present a coherent, connected, and contextual larger-picture for the public, who otherwise have no way to learn about the well-documented damage that coronavirus vaccines are causing.

Sudden deaths, ’cause unknown’

The title of Dowd’s work – Cause Unknown – drips sarcasm as the book lambasts the corporate press for failing to expose the real reason behind the huge number of sudden deaths despite ample scope to consider easily available circumstantial evidence.

The foreword to the book is written by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr, who is the nephew of former US president John F. Kennedy. He is a US-based environmental lawyer who’s been actively running an awareness campaign about Covid-19 vaccines’ potential lack of safety for the past two years.

Kennedy, Jr is among numerous doctors, activists, experts, and logical-thinking people who’ve been arguing that the Covid-19 vaccination drive is inhuman and life-threatening since the jabs were developed and rolled out for commercial use in just one year’s time, bypassing several years of testing and trialling that vaccines usually need to undergo.  

Vietnam War deaths

In his foreword note, Kennedy, Jr writes, “In 2021, it was Dowd, and not public health officials who citizens rely upon, who brought international attention to the fact that healthy, working-age Americans were dying, and dying suddenly, at an alarming rate never seen before. These excess deaths were not anticipated by insurance actuaries, and weren’t attributed to Covid.”

He continues, “Dowd framed the issue in a way I can’t forget – From February 2021 to March 2022, millennials experienced the equivalent of a Vietnam War, with more than 60,000 excess deaths. The Vietnam War took 12 years to kill the same number of healthy young people we’ve just seen die in 12 months.”

Dowd scanned the mainstream media, poured into reports from insurance companies, convened a group of industry experts, recruited expert analysts from around the world, and drew on data from various official sources in many countries, and did meticulous statistical analyses to study the sudden deaths from all angles.

Now a partner in the investment firm Phinance Technologies, Dowd explained the rationale and context for writing the book. He says in the introduction, “In early 2021, I started hearing alarming and unusual stories of young, exceptionally fit athletes dropping dead on the field of play. If those who are the healthiest among us are suddenly dying, what would that mean for the rest of the population?

“In other words, what if healthy, young athletes are the canary in the coalmine? To my trained eye, what others might consider sad anecdotes became something more. A trend change was underway.”

Trend of excess deaths

Writing about his gifted ability to identify trend changes “before they were apparent to peers and the financial press”, Dowd says, “Using similar skills, I can look at today’s health and death statistics and see that something isn’t right. To be more specific, something about all-cause mortality (deaths from any cause) and the excess death rate isn’t right.”

The author refers to the CEO of the OneAmerica insurance company as “publicly disclosing” that during the third and fourth quarters of 2021, deaths among people of working age (18-64 years) was 40% higher than they were before the pandemic.

Crucially, as Dowd pointed out, the majority of those deaths were not attributed to Covid-19. That’s precisely when logical-thinking people like him began to wonder if the timing of the unexplained fatalities, which went up during the Covid vaccination era, was more than a coincidence.

“What has caused this historic spike in deaths among younger people? What has caused the shift from old people, who are expected to die, to younger people, who are expected to keep living?” Dowd’s probing mind asks.

He went on to ask whether the readers have heard about such an unexplained spike in sudden deaths among children studying in junior schools, high schools, and colleges. Dowd also asks, “How many times in your life did you hear of a performer dropping dead on stage in mid-performance?”

Case history of sudden deaths

Dowd painstakingly built up his case by making a compendium of healthy young athletes, medical practitioners, famous people, and children who dropped dead, or passed away in their sleep, and regretted how the pro-pharma popular press downplayed the incidents or suppressed them.

“Two healthy teenage boys are found dead in their beds a few days apart. In both cases, emergency responders knew immediately that resuscitation would be futile. Just days before they died, both had received the… Covid vaccine. An autopsy in Connecticut and another in Michigan confirmed the official cause of death for both boys: vaccine-induced myocarditis.

“When official agencies in two states conclude that Covid vaccines can kill healthy teenagers, wouldn’t that seem to be important national news? But it was barely reported anywhere,” Dowd says in the book, questioning the agenda of the mainstream media in its coverage of the pandemic.

“In the rare instances that these deaths are even reported beyond local news outlets, the reports contain phrases most readers have subconsciously come to expect and accept – ’cause of death unknown’, ‘died of natural causes’, ;no cause of death has been given’, ‘died after a brief illness’, ‘officials are still investigating the cause of death’… No follow-up news stories, no questions from reporters, no curiosity,” he writes.

Sudden deaths and media’s ignorance

This trend among ad-driven Big Media outlets can be seen across continents, with influential mainstream journalists from India to China to America to Australia hardly ever bringing up the topic of rising sudden deaths coinciding with widening Covid vaccination coverage.

To firmly back up what he’s trying to tell world in his book, Dowd published tell-tale screenshots of a number of headlines in various news outlets reporting the sudden deaths of young celebrities, athletes and medical practitioners, and children.

The facts are presented before the readers, with the writer making subtle inferences, and leaving it to the readers to draw definitive conclusions.
