Coronavirus: UK's Death Rate Highest of G7 Nations

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-53222182

An analysis of Covid-19 deaths and excess deaths - which compared countries in three different ways - showed the UK worse off than the US, Germany, France, Italy, Canada, and Japan.





On all three measures - recorded Covid-19 deaths per 100,000 people, excess deaths per 100,000 people, and excess deaths as a proportion of the usual level of deaths - the UK has been the hardest hit. Of the G7 nations, Germany, Canada, and Japan, have seen comparatively few deaths.

The UK had registered 65 Covid-19 deaths per 100,000 people, versus 58 for Italy, 44 for France, and 38 for the US.

Using "excess deaths" might help account for different measurement techniques, and the per-100,000 people number for the UK is 97, lower for Italy at 75, France just ahead of the US, with Canada, Germany and Japan at very low numbers.
A separate Oxford University study, using the same methods, analyses Europe's worst hit nations using percentage excess deaths as the key metric.


That is an appalling record for the UK .....

The "official" UK figure of 43,575 COVID-19 dead is higher that that of deaths in the UK caused by bombing during the WWII blitz and the "unofficial" figure of more than 60,000 is similar to that of all deaths in the UK caused by air attack (including V-weapons) during WWII .....

No matter what figures are used, the performance of the UK government in dealing with COVID-19 has been abysmal, resulting in 1,000's of unnecessary deaths .....

You're right Omah it's a total disgrace.
I won't say what I think of our government, it makes me too angry.

Death rate 'back to normal' in UK


https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-53233066

The number of deaths registered in the UK over one week has fallen below the five-year average for the first time since mid-March.

The decrease reflects a decline in coronavirus-related deaths, official data show.

Of 10,681 deaths registered in the week up to 19 June, 849 (8%) mentioned coronavirus.

This is the lowest number of deaths involving the pandemic virus since the week ending 13 March.

The number of deaths registered up to 19 June was eight below the five-year average for that week.

The total number of excess deaths in the UK since the coronavirus outbreak began stands at 65,132.
As good as that news is, it won't replace 65,132 lost souls .....

I feel so let down by our government. And I'm still feeling let down and disappointed as I hear Leicester has a massive spike and they knew about it 2 weeks ago . What the hell is going to happen in coming months .
