Data presented to Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin by a U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) whistleblower highlights reports that American servicemen and servicewomen have suffered serious injuries related to COVID-19 shots, including a 130 percent increase in myocarditis cases.1
Sen. Johnson said:
Based on data from the Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED), Thomas Renz, an attorney who is representing three Department of Defense whistleblowers, reported that these whistleblowers found a significant increase in registered diagnoses on DMED for miscarriages, cancer, and many other medical conditions in 2021 compared to a five-year average from 2016-2020.2
The DoD whistleblower provided Sen. Johnson’s office with new information showing significant increases in specific registered diagnoses from the Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED) in 2021 compared to a five-year average from the period 2016-2020. The whistleblower downloaded the DMED data early this year after DoD acknowledged in 2022 that DMED data had been corrupted and that they would fix the database system.3
In 2022, Maj. Charlie Dietz, a spokesperson for the Pentagon, explained that an internal review found that the DMED was not accurate for a span of five years:
DHA’s Armed Forces Surveillance Division (AFSD) conducted a complete review of the data contained in the Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED) and found that the data was incorrect for the years 2016-2020.4
According to DoD, the corruption of the data in the DMED was fixed shortly after the review’s findings.5
In 2021, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin ordered all members of the U.S. military to be get COVID shots. Active duty units were required to receive the shots by Dec. 15, 2021 and Reserve and National Guard units were required to receive them by June 30, 2022.6
Myocarditis, Malignant Neoplasms, Embolisms, Ovarian Dysfunction Increased After COVID Shot Mandate
The updated data provided by the whistleblower showed the most significant increases in registered diagnoses in DMED in 2021 compared to a five-year average from 2016-2020. The data showed an increase in myocarditis by 130.5 percent; malignant neoplasms of esophagus by 56.6 percent; pulmonary embolism by 41.2 percent; ovarian dysfunction by 38.2 percent, and complications of heart disease by 37.7 percent.7
On Feb. 15, 2022, DoD provided Sen. Johnson’s office a chart listing the 15 registered diagnoses and showed the percentage change in the adverse health condition diagnoses before and after DoD fixed the DMED.8 However, the most recent DMED data provided to Sen. Johnson by the whistleblower showed different percentages of diagnoses compared to the data that DoD provided in 2022, after the DMED was allegedly fixed.9
Discrepancies Between Whistleblower and DoD Data from 2022
The newly disclosed data by the whistleblower shows higher increases in health diagnoses than that provided by DoD last year. The whistleblower’s data showed that diseases of the nervous system increased by 9.5 percent in 2021 compared to 5.7 percent according to DoD’s data. The whistleblower’s data also showed that hypertension increased by 12.6 percent, while DoD’s data showed a 1.9 percent increase. Testicular cancer increased 16.3 percent according to the whistleblower’s data, while DoD’s data showed an increase of 3 percent. The whistleblower’s data showed that pulmonary embolism increased by 41.4 percent, while DoD’s data showed it increased by 25.4 percent.10 11
Some percentages reported by the whistleblower were lower than DoD’s reports. The whistleblower’s data showed that female infertility increased by 4.3 percent, but DoD’s data showed an increase of 13.3 percent. According to the whistleblower’s data, Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) increased by 3.2 percent, while DoD’s data showed an increase of 17.2 percent.12
Commenting on the data discrepancies, Sen. Johnson said:
It remains unclear how DoD calculated the percent changes for these specific registered diagnoses after the DMED data issue was allegedly fixed. Further, the recent whistleblower data highlighted above raises additional questions as to why the whistleblowers percent changes differ from DoD’s percent changes if the data source for both calculations was DMED.13
