Deaths by covid-19 earlier this year had nothing to do with the vaccination campaign

You have sent us a video analysing the alleged effect of vaccination on covid-19 mortality worldwide, together with a screenshot of the particular case of Spain. In the video it is shown how the number of deaths by covid-19 started increasing at the end of December 2020, coinciding with the beginning of the vaccination campaign. The video is MISLEADING. This coincidence is real, but the images try to link two variables that are not directly related. Deaths registered during the first vaccination stage depend on epidemiological circumstances such as the relaxation of mobility during the Christmas period. In fact, when mortality was stabilised in April, the immunisation rhythm was three-fold higher than in January.
