In the second half of 2021, the death rate among persons aged 18 to 64 increased by 40%.

That’s a life insurance industry number.

“We’re seeing right now the highest death rates we’ve ever seen in the history of this [life insurance] business,” said OneAmerica CEO Scott Davison. And it’s not just at OneAmerica: “The data is consistent across every player in that business.”

I posted a few weeks ago about the shrinking American labor force and the impact of the loss of workers on the economy. That was before this number was known.

Davison went on to provide a context for this 40% spike in deaths.

“Just to give you an idea of how bad that is, a three sigma or a 1-in-200-year catastrophe would be a 10% increase over pre-pandemic levels,” Davison said. “So, 40% is just unheard of.”

Folks, we’re in uncharted territory here.

This death rate simply counts bodies regardless of stated cause. Medical research has previously pointed to an elevated risk of death for up to two years after a Covid infection. It’s hard to see anything besides the virus that could be responsible for this massive increase.
