Coronavirus: the Tories have LIED about the daily death toll – INCREASING fears. Why?

Take a look at this headline:

Is it working? UK records 43 coronavirus deaths in past 24 hours compared to 87 yesterday

You can see it in situ by following the link at the bottom of the article. It was a Daily Mail headline on March 25.

It’s a lie, of course – but this time the Mail doesn’t seem to be to blame.

No, this time it’s the Tory government who seem to be at fault.

It wasn’t realistic for the government to claim that the number of deaths had halved, so early in the pandemic’s residence in the UK.

So the BBC’s Newsnight questioned it – and was told by the government that that it cannot add deaths to the total as they happen, because it has to obtain the permission of each family before it can do so.

This is not true.

There is no law – covering data protection or otherwise – requiring family members to give their permission before a death can be added to the total attributed to the coronavirus.

It’s just a number, you see; no personal details are being passed on.

The government had also changed the time at which the number of new deaths was reported, meaning there had been a shorter period between reports.

And according to Skwawkbox, it seems deaths at home, in care homes and in hospital A&E units have also been omitted.

Why indeed – in response to both questions.

Figures for the following day (March 26) showed an increase of 115 – more than on both the previous two days – showing that the number of fatalities is still increasing.

So the only logical reason for the Tories to lie is contradicted – the number of deaths per day clearly is not falling.

So if we have learnt anything, it is that we cannot trust the figures the Conservative government is providing; the true figure may be much higher than they have said.

So, far from allaying fears about the deadliness of the virus, Boris Johnson and his cronies have only increased them.

    What people don’t get about Italy’s death rate, is they are counting deaths caused both directly by CV19 and through people being unable to receive medical treatment due to the strain on health services caused by the pandemic.

    People are in for a shock when we get those test kits arrive

    It seems to me that our Conservative Government have fallen back on their tried and tested methods of moving goalposts and deflecting blame – it’s worked so well in the past !
    Why else would they endanger NHS staff and those that they care for by stopping testing ? – testing produces statistics that show how bad the situation is and how badly they are coping with the crisis.

    So to change reporting methods so early in the game demonstrates how desperate they are and they don’t have enough imagination to do anything other than obfuscate the truth.

    Time for part-time Bojob to leave the work to his minions and have a holiday I think…

    Tories are habitual liars, they have been doing it for decades and, with their divide and rule policies, it works for them. They are basically just a bunch of fraudsters.
