Devastating new data has revealed that fatal blood clots have now soared so high that they are the leading cause of preventable deaths in American hospitals.
According to a new report from the National Blood Clot Alliance (NBCA), the number of deaths caused by blood clots skyrocketed after the rollout of Covid mRNA vaccines.
The spiking number of fatalities means that blood clots now account for 300,000 annual deaths in the United States.
According to the NBCA, blood clots are now killing more Americans than car crashes, breast cancer, and AIDS combined.
Despite the alarming number of deaths, however, Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration appears to be downplaying the issue.
According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which only publicly reveals figures for up to the year 2021, only 100,000 people in the U.S. die from blood clots every year.
The data from the top federal health agency is far lower than the latest figures published by the NBCA.
Nevertheless, the CDC insists that nearly half of the fatalities are caused by patients not receiving proper preventative treatment, according to the CDC.
Even so, the CDC’s data show that one out of every 10 hospital mortalities is now attributed to a blood clot in the lungs.
The agency acknowledges that it has now become the leading cause of preventable hospital deaths in the United States.
The data shows that the number started soaring during the Covid pandemic.
Some studies have shown that contracting the virus has been linked to a greater chance of developing blood clots.
However, research mostly shows large numbers of people develop deadly blood clots after receiving COVID-19 mRNA vaccines.
As soaring numbers of Americans are now developing deadly blood clots, the country is getting caught up in a healthcare catch-22.
Prompt medical intervention is necessary when symptoms of blood clots develop.
However, as health officials continue to downplay the issue, a lack of appropriate care in hospitals is complicating the problem.
Healthcare insiders say the lack of transparency about the spike is further fueling the surge in blood clot deaths.
Nearly half of all blood clots occur within three months of a hospital stay or surgery, according to the CDC.
Dr. Emily Smith, a general practitioner and contributor at The Healthy Dart, said a combination of factors contribute to the high incidence of blood clot-related deaths in hospitals.
These include “inadequate awareness, suboptimal implementation of preventative measures, and challenges in identifying at-risk patients,” Dr. Smith said in response to the report.
Dr. Smith believes preventing blood clots from developing in hospital patients requires a “multi-faceted” approach including early mobility for patients, compression devices, the use of anticoagulants, and proper risk assessment screenings.
“Ensuring consistent implementation of these measures requires robust hospital policies, staff education, and patient engagement,” she said.
Former ICU nurse and aging life care professional Samantha Hainer warns that many blood clots go undiagnosed.
Symptoms can be very subtle and public awareness of the issue remains limited, meaning sufferers often go untreated.
Hainer said that while preventing blood clots isn’t a “one size fits all” solution, more face time between doctors, nurses, and patients is an indispensable part of diagnosing the issue before it’s too late.
“I’ve experienced the intricate challenges of blood clot prevention,” she said.
However, Hainer suggests that doctors are more interested in vaccinating patients for Covid without considering the side effects.
“Our healthcare system typically operates in a reactive mode, focusing on immediate interventions during crises,” she noted.
The United States has a healthcare worker shortage problem that is getting worse.
One analysis concluded that an additional 206,553 nurses will be needed by 2030, with a predicted 42 states suffering shortages.
And a survey of U.S. nurses in 2023 found that 91 percent believe staffing issues are getting worse.
A scarcity of doctors compounds this, with a 2019 Association of American Medical Colleges report forecasting a physician shortage of up to 124,000 over the next decade.
The news comes as concerns continue to mount over the impact on public health following the rollout of Covid injections in 2021.
As Slay News recently reported, researchers have published the results from a troubling new study that confirms Covid mRNA shots are responsible for spikes in several other serious and potentially fatal health issues.
The groundbreaking study found direct links between the injections and cases of vaccine-acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (VAIDS), various types of cancer, heart failure, and brain disorders.
The researchers found that people who receive multiple Covid injections, i.e., a double dose of mRNA shots from Pfizer-BioNTech followed by a “booster,” can suffer all sorts of health horrors, potentially resulting in sudden and early death.
