A fresh set of statistical numbers may have solved the mystery of the missing workers. People, all over the world, are dying off in droves and Covid-19 isn’t the cause. Insurance company number crunchers almost had coronaries themselves when they saw the spike. “40% is just unheard of.”
Numbers alarm the experts
For years, the tinfoil hat conspiracy types have been warning that the New World Order is out to kill off most of the population. Whether the conspiracy theory is true or not, insurance company numbers confirm that the human race really is dying off.
That solves the mystery of the missing truck drivers and all the help wanted signs in every shop window.
OneAmerica is a major insurance company that just happens to be based in Indianapolis. Not some “fly-by-night ‘internet’ insurance company,” they pull in “annual revenue of around $2 billion” and piled up “total assets of around $74 billion.” They also have a set of actuarial numbers “that go back 145 years.”
Nobody can accuse them of being deplorable Right-wing reactionaries either, because they’re as progressive as Progressive. OneAmerica prides itself on “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.” Brian Tabor, the president of the Indiana Hospital Association, independently verified that “hospitals across the state are being flooded with patients “with many different conditions,” adding “unfortunately, the average Hoosiers’ health has declined during the pandemic.”
In a recent Indiana state level conference, their CEO provided the clues to solve the mystery of the missing workers. Scott Davison explained that one of the reasons there are literally “help wanted signs” everywhere that you look is because “working-age people are dying at an unprecedented rate.” Not from Covid.
The numbers confirm that going into the pandemic, “152 million Americans were employed.” Right now, its “sitting at just 148 million.” Experts have never seen anything like it in U.S. history but there are “simultaneous worker shortages in major industrialized nations all over the planet.”
Highest rates in history
According to Davison, their analysts are freaking out over a massive spike in the death rate numbers. They mean a lot to a life insurance company that pays out on each one. “For OneAmerica, we expect the costs of this are going to be well over $100 million, and this is our smallest business. So it’s having a huge impact on that.”
The statistic for working-age people has gone up 40% since before the pandemic started. “We are seeing, right now, the highest death rates we have seen in the history of this business – not just at OneAmerica. The data is consistent across every player in that business.”
These are “huge, huge numbers” and “the costs will be passed on to employers purchasing group life insurance policies.” It’s not “elderly people” who are dying, but “primarily working-age people 18 to 64.” They know for sure because they “are the employees of companies that have group life insurance plans through OneAmerica.”
In the third quarter alone, what they saw was alarming. “what we saw just in third quarter, we’re seeing it continue into fourth quarter, is that death rates are up 40% over what they were pre-pandemic.”
“Just to give you an idea of how bad that is, a three-sigma or a one-in-200-year catastrophe would be 10% increase over pre-pandemic,” he said. “So 40% is just unheard of.” A “three-sigma” limit is “a statistical calculation where the data are within three standard deviations from a mean.”
In other words, a “major event.” Davison explains that the numbers aren’t coming from covid. “What the data is showing to us is that the deaths that are being reported as COVID deaths greatly understate the actual death losses among working-age people from the pandemic. It may not all be COVID on their death certificate, but deaths are up just huge, huge numbers.”
