The Australian Medical Professionals’ Society (AMPS) has taken the initiative to conduct an independent inquiry into the alarming rates of mortality in Australia. In an effort to find answers, a panel of experts, both Australian and international, will address an audience at Parliament House in Canberra on October 18.
It is indeed an extraordinary thing to say, but Australia is currently experiencing a prolonged elevated rate of death across all age groups. Official figures show that the mortality rates are about 12-17% above baseline averages, a phenomenon not seen since wartime. These rates spiked in early 2021 and have remained at unusually high levels ever since.
The cause of this unprecedented increase in deaths is believed to be linked to the response of medical and political authorities to the COVID-19 pandemic. Unscientific and ethically questionable public health measures such as extended lockdowns, border closures, school closures, forced masking, and the promotion of experimental vaccines have been enforced without credible evidence of reducing mortality or keeping people safe.
Moreover, the excess deaths seen in Australia are not an isolated occurrence. Many countries globally are witnessing disturbing trends in death from all causes, most of which cannot be attributed to COVID-19. This widespread increase in mortality indicates that a disaster is unfolding, even if it appears silent. However, there seems to be a lack of interest from public health officials, politicians, and medical associations in investigating this issue. The authorities’ failure to seek answers reflects a reckless disregard for the lives of Australians, and it is imperative that the cause of these deaths is identified and addressed promptly.
Senator Ralph Babet recognized the urgency of the situation and proposed two motions in the Senate to acknowledge and investigate Australia’s excess death data. Unfortunately, both motions were defeated, indicating a lack of willingness from those in power to address the issue. In light of this, the Australian Medical Professionals’ Society has taken it upon themselves to conduct the inquiry that no one else seems interested in pursuing. As an association dedicated to ethical evidence-based healthcare, AMPS will hold an inquiry into Australia’s excess mortality on October 18 at Parliament House in Canberra. They have invited submissions from national and international experts, as well as from relevant government bodies such as the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (ATAGI), and the Department of Health.
The number of deaths in Australia constitutes an unfolding catastrophe, and it is the responsibility of society to investigate the underlying causes. Failing to seek answers is not only negligent but also disrespectful to the deceased and their loved ones. The results of this inquiry will be made available to all Australians, and the published report will be shared with stakeholders, medical regulatory and political authorities, as well as medical colleges and associations.
In conclusion, the Australian Medical Professionals’ Society has taken a proactive stance in conducting an independent inquiry into Australia’s excess mortality rates. Their efforts aim to uncover the reasons behind the alarming number of deaths and propose solutions to prevent further loss of life. It is crucial that all stakeholders, including the government and medical bodies, collaborate to address this issue and ensure the well-being and safety of all Australians.
