HeraldScotland: The neonatal mortality rate in September, at 4.9 per 1000 live births, was significantly above average

However, the numbers are changing every month, so September’s rate was alarming!

Scotland hasn’t faced this high mortality rate since the 1980s.

The public officials previously have shared some concerns about C-19 impact on neonatal deaths, but this is something else, something more frightening.

What do you think? How many of the 21 deaths in Scotland from September were from fully vaccinated mothers?

The Herald covered this story:

Public Health Scotland (PHS), which is one of the bodies currently investigating the spike, said the fact that the upper control limit has been exceeded “indicates there is a higher likelihood that there are factors beyond random variation that may have contributed to the number of deaths that occurred”.

PHS said it is working with the Scottish National Neonatal Network, the Maternity and Children Quality Improvement Collaborative and the Scottish Government “to understand any possible contributing factors to the most recent infant mortality patterns, and to incorporate findings into existing prevention and improvement work”.

Monthly figures on neonatal death rates are only available up to July 2017, but previously peaked at 3.7 per 1000 lives births in March 2020.

Annual statistics on neonatal mortality published by the National Records of Scotland show that it has been in steady decline for decades, falling from an average of 4.7 per 1000 live births in 1986-1990 to 2.2 per 1000 by 2016-2020.

Worldwide, the most common causes of neonatal death are infection, prematurity, and suffocation, but factors such as smoking during pregnancy or disruption to early intervention services including health visiting and midwifery also increase the risk.

PHS notes on its website that it “is important to monitor the levels of stillbirth and infant mortality during the Covid-19 pandemic, as they may be influenced by maternal health and wellbeing, by how maternity services are provided, and how people seek and interact with care”.

They have also shared some potential issues and causes of the rise in neonatal mortality:

-An unseasonal spike in respiratory syncytial virus (RSV)

-Pre-term deliveries caused by COVID-19 infections in expectant mothers

-Increased pressure on health services

The officials stated that the deaths of the newborns weren’t linked with Covid-19. What has caused the dramatic increase of death in 2020? And what made 2020 so successful?

The MSM doesn’t want to report on the link between vaccinated mothers and newborn deaths.

BBC reported:

PHS said there was “currently no indication of links between these deaths and Covid-19 infection” although the data will be examined further.

Pre-term deliveries


Dr Sarah Stock, an expert in maternal and fetal health at University of Edinburgh, said it was rare for newborn babies to become infected or seriously-ill with Covid but she said the virus could be having an impact in other ways.

“We know, for instance, that when pregnant women have Covid they can become seriously unwell, and in order to protect the mother and baby that can lead to pre-term deliveries,” she said. “Pre-term delivery is the biggest driver of neonatal mortality.

“We also know that the pandemic has put a lot of pressure on health services and that could be having an impact.”

PHS is now working with the Scottish National Neonatal Network , the Maternity and Children Quality Improvement Collaborative and the Scottish government to understand possible contributing factors.

Figures for the number of stillborn babies also increased in September but not beyond the upper warning or control limit.
Deaths of newborn babies have fallen steadily in recent decades with the mortality rate per 1,000 births dropping from double figures in the 1970s to 2.1 in 2020.
