Germany’s federal health minister makes up 300,000 fictional heat deaths, accused of spreading fear through the public.
Now that the Corona pandemic has been exposed as being for the most part as a large-scale vaccine swindle and government overreach, Germany’s federal minister of health Karl Lauterbach, SPD Socialists, has now shifted his focus on to a new scare story: summer heat deaths.
The solution: more government control.
Recently Lauterbach introduced his National Heat Protection Plan, claiming that there are between 5,000 and 20,000 heat-related deaths each and every summer. Especially older, chronically ill people, pregnant women, newborns and small children are at risk, according to Lauterbach. Lockdowns in some form or another may be needed when the weather is hot.
Lauterbach feels that the alleged summer heat death numbers 5,000 to 20,000 are more than enough to justify the implementation of a drastic nationwide heat protection plan. However, it turns out Lauterbach has wildly exaggerated the numbers by nearly 10,000 a year!
The newly created Nius.de here reports on Lauterbach’s gross exaggeration, and presents the true figures going back to 1990 (blue bars):
The mean of Lauterbach’s 5000 to 20,000 is 12,500. But the real mean from 1992 to 2022 is about 2500, which would mean Lauterbach made up some 300,000 fictional heat deaths for the period. That’s more than 100 deaths per summer day!
From or with heat
When NIUS asked the Federal Ministry of Health multiple times on which data basis Lauterbach made his claims, they never got an answer.
Perhaps Lauterbach now counts heat deaths like Corona deaths: If a patient dies from or during a heat wave, than the cause of death is heat.
Nius.de adds: “The figure of up to 20,000 heat deaths would indeed be disturbing – if it were not highly unserious. But that doesn’t move the minister at all. Following France’s example, he wants to be allowed to cancel events when it is very hot.”
