Covid-19: 80,000 deaths, you say? No: 95,000

Last Updated: January 11, 2021By Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Disinformation: the UK’s Tory government wants us to think there have not been as many deaths related to Covid-19 as is in fact the case. The virus is connected with nearly 100,000 deaths now – almost one-quarter more than the official figure suggests.

The official Covid-19 death toll passed 80,000 on Saturday (January 9) – and that is genuine cause for desolation:

But of course the official figure does not include many Covid-related deaths, as Professor Kailash Chand makes clear:

We are a lot closer to the landmark failure represented by 100,000 deaths than the UK government wants anybody to think.

    This is how Johnston and his cronies try to make the English NHS look better than those of the devolved governments. They only count people where the actual cause of death is down to covid-19, whereas in Scotland (I don’t know about Wales of NI), we count every death that has covid-19 mentioned on the death certificate, even if not the primary cause of death. They are experts at skewing figures, particularly when they continually refer to UK figures to hide how bad the English ones are.
