According to a report from Sky News, there have been an increased number of deaths in 2022 due to cardiac arrhythmia, also known as an irregular heartbeat, with the report suggesting that this category of death is “one of the reasons more people than usual have been dying this year” when compared to previous years.
Citing data from the Office for National Statistics, the number of deaths in the first half of 2022 out of England and Wales via cardiac arrhythmia was considerably higher than data recorded from previous years.
Per the Mayo Clinic, among the listed causes that can lead to cardiac arrhythmia are “Changes to the heart’s structure, such as from cardiomyopathy.” Further, John Hopkins notes that myocarditis “can cause the heart muscle to weaken and can lead to cardiomyopathy.”
Referring to the anomaly as “excess deaths,” which Sky News described as “the number of deaths that are above the long-term average for a particular week or month of the year,” the month of March saw 234 excess deaths due to cardiac arrhythmia and 138 excess deaths via the condition in April.
Between January and June, each month saw a significant statistical jump in cardiac arrhythmia deaths compared to standard figures of years past:
- January: 13.7% increase
- February: 9.2% increase
- March: 37.1% increase
- April: 23.1% increase
- May: 39% increase
- June: 17.9% increase
Sarah Caul, who is the head of mortality analysis at the Office for National Statistics, mentioned these deaths are particularly among the elderly population while also invoking “the long-term effects of COVID” in her comments as being something researchers are looking into.
“Across March, April and May, we saw increases in deaths due to cardiac arrhythmias, predominantly among those aged 80 and above. Further work needs to be done to understand any link between the long-term effects of COVID and increasing cardiac deaths.”
While Caul unironically mentioned COVID as being a possible link to these excess cardiac arrhythmia deaths, it’s hard to ignore the elephant in the room as it relates to the administering of COVID shots, which CDC data shows that nearly 72% of Americans aged 65 or older have taken the full series of COVID shots – with the U.K. likely harboring a similar inoculation rate in that age demographic.
And when looking at reports from around the world, there’s another phenomenon ongoing regarding “sudden deaths” among ostensibly healthy athletes. Said reports of athletes dropping dead due to heart-related issues began spiking alarmingly ever since the COVID shots debuted.
Furthermore, studies have come out showing that the COVID shots – particularly the Moderna iteration – are statistically more harmful to men under the age of 40 than the actual virus itself. This revelation, which was unearthed this past August, is hardly surprising considering there was already a slew of data regarding the shots posing increased risks for teenage boys to men in their early twenties.

Red Voice Media would like to make a point of clarification on why we do not refer to any shot related to COVID-19 as a "vaccine." According to the CDC, the definition of a vaccine necessitates that said vaccine have a lasting effect of at least one year in preventing the contraction of the virus or disease it's intended to fight. Because all of the COVID-19 shots thus far available have barely offered six months of protection, and even then not absolute, Red Voice Media has made the decision hereafter to no longer refer to the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson substances as vaccinations.
