My Take…

I cannot begin to explain how many people are dying in their sleep right now.

(Substack won’t allow me to send 30 images by email (limit is 13), so please come back to the substack website or app as I will re-load all 30 images here.)

In this article I examine 30 deaths while asleep. While this analysis is not “scientific”, some interesting numbers and patterns emerge:

  • Men 20 : Women 10
  • ages: <10 (1), 10-19 (3), 20-29 (10), 30-39 (7), 40-49 (7), 50-59 (1), 60-69 (1)
  • the deadliest age range for dying in sleep suddenly is 20-29 (10 deaths out of 30)
  • 7 Teachers
  • 4 Athletes (competitive)
  • 4 University/College students (2 nursing)
  • 2 doctors
  • 2 police officers
  • 2 hotel workers

Limitations of analysis: Sample size is still quite small. I did not include kids under age 5 (most are not COVID-19 vaccinated and childhood vaccinations and SIDS complicate the picture), ages 50+ are less likely to garner attention online and are thus under-reported, everyone’s job or profession wasn’t known.

CONCLUSION: This is the first ever attempt to analyze sudden deaths in sleep, which are happening frequently, since COVID-19 vaccines rolled out. 

Analysis shows: men to women 2:1, deadliest age range is 20-29, deadliest profession is “teacher”, where job status was known – it was almost always an aggressively COVID-19 vaccine mandated profession.
