# Database of Hospital ICD-10 Codes in Germany Shows AT LEAST 12-15x as Many Cases of Myo/Pericarditis Attributed to Covid Vaccines Compared to Covid

### These are all cases where the OFFICIAL diagnosis was myocarditis in the context of a Vaccine Injury

“Myocarditis is far more common and severe following covid infection compared to myocarditis following vaccination.” So we are told by the ecclesiastical authorities of Science to explain away the undeniable increase in cases of myocarditis following vaccination.

Thus the following study - published about three months ago - would seem exceedingly difficult for the infallible oracles of Science atop Mt. Olympus to interpolate (perhaps Mt. Doom is more appropriate):

Because the way the data is presented in the study is a bit confusing, this article is organized as follows:

**Basic background info necessary to understand what the data is****The study’s data - the table from the study that contains the data with a few pointers explaining what the various rows & columns mean****Explanation of the data in the chart broken down by age group, in plain, simple language****Observations/Analysis of the data beyond the topline numbers****A few limitations / caveats of this data**

**1. Background**

Germany has a database (available here) where hospitals report all of the diagnosed medical conditions for all patients that came to the hospital, for the years 2019-2022 in the form of ICD-10 codes. ICD-10 is the international coding system used worldwide to document medical diagnoses:

If you want to look up how many cases of something there were in hospitals, you could simply look up the ICD code or codes for that condition.

Of particular importance to us, without getting too deep into the weeds of how ICD-10 is organized, is that there are a multiple ICD codes for many conditions.

A pair of courageous German researchers using this German hospital data compared the number of cases of myocarditis/pericarditis for the years 2019, 2020 and 2021. They also looked up the number of cases of myo/pericarditis that were diagnosed as either a complication of covid disease, or a vaccine injury. In their own words, they tallied the following:

“numbers of hospitalized cases in Germany between 2019 and 2021 with a principal diagnosis of myocarditis (ICD10 codes I40.8, I40.9, and I51.4) or pericarditis (I30.9) and a secondary diagnosis of COVID-19 (U07.1), an adverse event related to a COVID-19 vaccine (U12.9), or an adverse event related to any vaccine (Y59.9 and T88.1).”

Simply put, the researchers looked up three things:

**Total # of cases of myo/pericarditis for each year**(using the 4 ICD codes listed above - I40.8, I40.9, and I51.4 for myocarditis & I30.9 for pericarditis)**Total # of myo/pericarditis cases caused by covid**- meaning cases that listed BOTH an ICD code for myo/pericarditis AND the ICD code for covid (U07.1)**Total # of myo/pericarditis cases caused by a vaccine injury**- meaning cases that listed BOTH an ICD code for myo/pericarditis AND one of the three ICD codes for a vaccine injury.**There were three ICD codes for vaccine injury that they used. Two of the ICD codes - Y59.9 & T88.1 - are for an injury caused by any vaccine. The third one however - U12.9 - is specifically for an injury caused by a COVID vaccine.**

What they found would be shocking in a sane world. Alas, our world is not sane.

## 2. Study Data

The following table shows the number of German hospital myo/pericarditis cases, by age cohorts:

##### Each age cohort has two rows: the top row is ALL cases of hospitalized myocarditis; the bottom row are the number of these cases that required “intensive care” (probably means ICU)

##### The leftmost column (with green circles) shows the total number of cases myo/pericarditis for the year 2019

##### The third column from left (with blue circles) shows the total number of myo/pericarditis cases for 2020

##### The sixth column (dark red circles) shows the total number of myo/pericarditis cases for 2021

##### Column 10 - second to last on the right (with blood red circles) - shows the total number of myo/pericarditis cases attributed to a vaccine in 2021

##### The rightmost column shows the total number of cases of myo/pericarditis cases attributed to covid in 2021

## 3. Explanation of the Data

Below are the cohorts with the widest differences between vaccine myo/peri and covid myo/peri:

### Ages 10-17 Cohort

There were 11 cases of myo/peri attributed to covid in 2021, of which 3 received intensive care.

There were 160 cases of myo/peri attributed to a vaccine in 2021, of which 32 received intensive care.

#### There were 14.5x as many cases of myo/peri attributed to a vaccine as there were to covid in the 10-17 cohort in 2021.

In this cohort in particular, the number of vaccine myocarditis cases is probably far higher than the number of cases of myo/peri with a vaccine ICD code. There were 236 more cases of myo/peri in 2021 than in 2019, but only 171 were attributed to either a vaccine or to covid. This leaves 65 “excess” cases of myo/peri in this cohort in 2021. If these cases are also vaccine-related, then there would be 225 vaccine myo/peri cases vs 11 covid myo/peri cases - **20.5x as many cases of vaccine myo/peri than covid myo/peri!!**

### Ages 18-29 Cohort

There were 17 cases of myo/peri attributed to covid in 2021, of which 5 received intensive care.

There were 393 cases of myo/peri attributed to a vaccine in 2021, of which 115 received intensive care.

#### In other words, there were more than 23x as many cases of myo/peri attributed to a vaccine as there were to covid in the 18-29 cohort in 2021.

Also noteworthy here is that there were also the number of vaccine myo/peri cases that received intensive care was also 23x the number of covid myo/peri cases that received intensive care.

### Ages 30-39 Cohort

There were 11 cases of myo/peri attributed to covid in 2021, of which 4 received intensive care.

There were 159 cases of myo/peri attributed to a vaccine in 2021, of which 41 received intensive care.

#### There were 14.5x as many cases of myo/peri attributed to a vaccine as there were to covid in the 10-17 cohort in 2021.

### Ages 40-49 Cohort

There were 8 cases of myo/peri attributed to covid in 2021, of which <4 received intensive care.

There were 59 cases of myo/peri attributed to a vaccine in 2021, of which 8 received intensive care.

#### There were about 7.5x as many cases of myo/peri attributed to a vaccine as there were to covid in the 40-49 cohort in 2021.

### ALL Age Groups

There were 77 cases of myo/peri attributed to covid in 2021, of which 24 received intensive care.

There were 863 cases of myo/peri attributed to a vaccine in 2021, of which 211 received intensive care.

#### Overall there were more than 11x as many cases of myo/peri attributed to a vaccine as there were to covid in 2021.

This should be an absolute bombshell, even without any further analysis. The mere fact that the number of hospitalized cases of myo/pericarditis diagnosed as a vaccine injury are not just more, but an order of magnitude higher than the number of myo/pericarditis cases attributed to covid gives lie to the entire notion that there was ever even any ambiguity about this - the daily experience of medical professionals would have made clear that the covid vaccines cause far more myocarditis, and immediately severe myocarditis, than covid disease does.

## 4. Analysis of the data beyond the topline numbers

Below are a few additional observations on this dataset & study:

#### Observation #1: There are a few indications that the vaccines are leading to an even more cases of myo/pericarditis than the cases of myo/peri explicitly attributed to the vaccines:

**1. Not all vaccine myo/pericarditis cases were diagnosed/attributed to the vaccines**

One of the more notorious fraudulent data practices during the pandemic is the failure to attribute vaccine injuries to the vaccines. It is virtually guaranteed that a significant portion of vaccine injuries - including myo/pericarditis - were not officially diagnosed or identified as related to the vaccine.

This is hardly a controversial or novel idea. There was an unimaginable amount of pressure (and even threats) on doctors and medical providers to NOT associate any severe adverse events or injuries with the vaccines. Additionally, despite the fact that Germany to its credit assigned a dedicated ICD-10 code for covid vaccine injury, it is likely that many doctors were not aware of or familiar with the ICD codes used for vaccines or for the covid vaccine specifically.

There could also be some number of myo/peri cases that were incorrectly diagnosed as something else, or not diagnosed at all. (One of the shockingly cruelties inflicted upon the vaccine injured is the steadfast refusal by the mainstream medical community to diagnose even the injury or condition that the patient has - even if they deny the vaccine’s role in causing it. Many patients suffering extreme injuries or disabilities are told some form of “it’s in their head”. Obviously, such encounters with medical providers would not generate any ICD code for the specific injury or condition afflicting the patient.)

A specific indication from this dataset that there is indeed a missing chunk of vaccine-myo/peri cases is the 65 “excess” myo/pericarditis cases in 2021 over 2019 not attributed to either the vaccines or covid in the 10-19 age cohort. This cohort is the most prone to myo/pericarditis, or at least the cohort for which myo/peri is most easily associated with the vaccines; and more importantly, the cohort for which it is most ‘permissible’ for doctors to associate a case of myo/peri with the covid vaccines. It is overwhelmingly likely that these excess cases are attributable to the vaccines. Yet, they were nevertheless not officially diagnosed as vaccine-related. If a substantial number of cases of vaccine myo/peri were missed in the cohort where it is easiest to identify vaccine myo/peri, it follows that there were cases missed in the other cohorts where it is more difficult to identify and associate myo/peri with the vaccines.

**2. Some vaccine myo/peri cases may have been inappropriately attributed to covid**

In the 10-28 cohorts combined, there were 28 cases of myo/peri attributed to covid in 2021, but only 5-7 cases attributed to covid in 2020.

Did covid really become 5-7x more severe in kids / young adults in 2021? It seems doubtful.

It is more likely that either some cases of vaccine myo/peri were labelled covid, or at the very least were the result of a breakthrough covid case after vaccination, meaning that the myo/pericarditis was perhaps the result of the cumulative exposure to the toxicities of covid PLUS the vaccine.

**3. There may be cases of myo/peri that were diagnosed using a different ICD code than one of the 4 used by the researchers**

#### Observation #2: The difference in case RATES is probably markedly higher than the difference in the NUMBER of cases

The data here is merely the total number of myo/peri hospital cases.

The RATE of myo/peri per covid vaccine exposure is probably somewhat more differentiated from the rate of myo/peri per covid exposure than the difference between the total number of cases, especially in younger age cohorts. By the end of 2021, almost everyone had probably been infected by covid at least once. However, especially in the younger age cohorts, there was a substantial portion of vaccine holdouts. This would mean that the massively higher number of cases of vaccine-myo/peri were from fewer cumulative exposures to the covid vaccines than the comparatively trivial number of covid-myo/peri cases from a LARGER number of exposures. Ergo, the rate of myo/peri is likely even bigger than the difference in the total number of myo/peri cases attributed to the vaccines vs attributed to covid.

#### Observation #3: The low numbers of hospital myo/peri cases attributed to covid, and the low number of myo/peri cases overall in 2020, indicate that covid poses a negligible risk to cause myo/pericarditis

In 2020, there were a grand total of *32* cases of myo/peri attributed to covid - out of a total of 4,436; and compared to a grand total of 5,734 in 2019. That by itself is compelling evidence that covid simply was not causing myo/pericarditis in appreciable numbers.

Furthermore, for every single age cohort, there were FAR fewer cases of myo/peri overall in 2020 than in 2019 or 2021. If covid carried a significant or even tangible risk of myo/peri, then the number of myo/peri cases in 2020 should not be so low. This should hold true even granting that some of the decrease from 2019 to 2020 was on account of lockdown policies. Germany did not eliminate pandemic restrictions in 2021, yet saw a massive excess above even the number of cases of myo/peri in 2019. Thus even if we accept that maybe cases of covid-myo/peri were for whatever reason not diagnosed/attributed to covid, we should expect the total number of cases of hospital myo/peri to be substantial if covid was truly a myocarditis menace, not falling off a cliff like they actually did in 2020.

#### Observation #4: The size of this dataset is sufficient to presumptively rule out randomness or other unidentified, yet-undetermined causes

As far as I can tell, this dataset covers all the hospitals in Germany. That plus the sheer size and scope of the difference between vaccine-myo/peri and covid-myo/peri cannot be explained away as random or “statistically insignificant”. Nor can this degree of difference be rationally chalked up to “we haven’t found the cause yet”.

## 5. Limitations / Caveats

There are a few points that must be stipulated if we are to be honest and accurate here:

It is not possible to confidently extrapolate a baseline from 2019 alone, ideally we would be able to see back at least 5 years. Alas, this dataset only includes data starting from 2019.

I am not familiar with German data, culture, politics etc. I cannot speak to the credibility of this study or the underlying dataset. Hopefully the “peer review” of the internet will flesh out and either validate or invalidate this.

My first reaction when I saw the 2019 data was “wow this seems like way higher than I thought typical rates of myocarditis + pericarditis would be”. I am still entertaining the possibility that the total number of ‘hospital cases’ might be picking up multiple encounters with the same individual. Conversely, it seems unlikely for one hospital stay to generate multiple ICD codes for the same condition, and most people are not going to be hospitalized multiple times especially for something not requiring “intensive care”, as was the case for the majority of myo/peri cases. (This would not change the relative difference between vaccine-myo/peri vs covid-myo/peri.)

There are likely other limitations or additional factors that could be relevant here.

## Database of Hospital ICD-10 Codes in Germany Shows AT LEAST 12-15x as Many Cases of Myo/Pericarditis Attributed to Covid Vaccines Compared to Covid

Myocarditis due to Covid barely exists if at all. It’s all jab-related. Same with “long Covid”. All a cover for jab injury.
