An Inquiry into Australia’s Excess Mortality: Independent professionals investigate the disturbing r



Beginning in 2021, Australians have been dying at disturbing rates. Yet, political and medical authorities continue to ignore this, says a group of ethical doctors and scientists who have investigated what is killing so many Australians.


The Australian Senate voted against holding an inquiry into this excess mortality but independent, committed medical professionals have conducted an investigation. They reveal that even the inadequate adverse event reporting systems of global regulators show alarming numbers of adverse events, disability and deaths.


Australia is in the midst of a health crisis, the group of independent investigators said. Their analysis indicates it is iatrogenic. In other words, the harm to patients and death is induced “unintentionally” by a medical doctor or other professional. “Too many people are dead and harmed. Australians deserve accountability, transparency and justice.”

The following is a slightly edited statement made by the Australian Medical Professionals Society (“AMPS”) regarding their report on ‘Too Many Dead: An Inquiry into Australia’s Excess Mortality’.


It may at first seem an extraordinary thing to say, but the fact is that Australia is currently experiencing a prolonged elevated rate of death across all age groups. An examination of the official figures shows rates in the vicinity of 12-17% above baseline averages, rates never seen since wartime. They leapt up in early 2021 and continue at unusual levels to this day.


In response to the globally declared covid-19 pandemic, Australian medical and political authorities enforced unscientific and profoundly unethical public health measures such as extended lockdowns, border closures, school closures, forced masking and mandated novel vaccines still clearly in the experimental phase of development.


There is no credible evidence that the non-pharmaceutical or pharmaceutical public health interventions enforced reduced mortality and kept people “safe”.


The unprecedented excess deaths being seen in Australia are also being seen globally, with many countries witnessing disturbing trends in death from all causes, the majority of which are not attributable to covid-19.


The scale of death suggests we are in the midst of an actual disaster. The fact that it appears silent alters nothing. Too many extra Australians are dying and yet almost none of our public health officials, politicians or medical colleges and associations seem interested in finding out why. We seem to be confronted by administrative wilful blindness. Failure of the authorities to seek answers in fact shows a reckless disregard for the lives of Australians. It is past time for us to demand an answer to what is causing these deaths and how to stop them. If the government really cares about keeping people “safe” why is there such a refusal to inquire?


Senator Ralph Babet put forward two motions in the Senate seeking acknowledgement and an investigation into Australia’s excess death data. On 23 March 2023, he proposed a select committee of inquiry.


Senator Babet pursuant to notice of motion not objected to as a formal motion, moved a general business notice of motion no. 194 –

That a select committee, to be known as the Select Committee on Australia’s Excess Mortality, be established to inquire into and report on [this issue] …


But the motion was defeated 35 to 4.


Then again, regarding the Australian Bureau of Statistics Mortality date, on 24 March 2023, a motion was moved by Senator Babet asking that the Senate acknowledge:


There has been a concerning number of excess deaths in Australia in 2021 and 2022, as evidenced by recent all-cause provisional mortality data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics, and

There is a need for further inquiry and scrutiny as to the reasons for these excess deaths, including why dementia and diabetes have seen significant increases in recent years.


The motion was defeated 30 to 29.


Below are Senator Gerard Rennick’s comments in the Senate in support of Senator Babet’s motion to hold an inquiry into excess deaths.

Since it appears those who have been entrusted to serve and protect the people refuse to fulfil their duty to seek answers, AMPS will do so. AMPS, as an association of medical professionals dedicated to ethical evidence-based healthcare, is undertaking an inquiry that no one else will address. It is our duty as health professionals to make our patient’s health and safety our first priority. AMPS will be holding an inquiry into Australia’s excess mortality on Wednesday, 18 October in Parliament House, Canberra. We have called for submissions from national and international experts as well as from the Therapeutic Goods Administration (“TGA”), the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (“ATAGI”) and the Department of Health.


The number of dying Australians constitutes an unfolding catastrophe and we owe it to all those dead Australians and their grieving families and friends to investigate what is killing people at such an alarming rate. Failing to seek answers is negligent and far beyond disrespectful.


The results of this inquiry have now been made available to all Australians. The published report will be provided to all stakeholders, medical regulatory and political authorities, and medical colleges and associations.


This 472-page report is freely downloadable but a donation to help cover the costs involved and to assist the investigators in providing free hard copies to Australian medical and political authorities would be greatly appreciated. Any excess funds support will be put towards AMPS’ medico-legal fighting fund and future campaign actions.
