General (General discussion, talk about anything.)
Well, weigh it up yourself, using these figures .....
Office of National Statistics, in 2019 -
"There were 616,014 deaths registered in the UK in 2018, an increase of 1.5% from 607,172 in 2017".
Same Office of National Statistics, in 2020 -
"Of the 405,534 deaths that occurred in England in 2020 (and were registered by 10 October), 41.0% (166,168 deaths) occurred in hospital, compared with 46.2% for the five-year average."
Using this 'official' information, it follows -
2018 total deaths = 1688 per day.
2020 total deaths = 1409 per day (rounded up to year end at week 41 average. Due to daily Covid19 deaths now falling, the final figure will be less).
Taken that 27% of the 2018 figure were attributed to 'respiratory disease' ....... what does this tell you?
