Real Deaths Update

The latest ONS figures for deaths in England and Wales have just been published.

As before, the number of deaths registered in excess of the five year average, is much greater than has been attributed to covid-19.

The graph shows the difference in the number of deaths in England and Wales from the five year average. The total excess of deaths up to 17 Apr is 27,000. I’m going to assume an extra 10% for Scotland and Northern Ireland, bring the total to 29,700.

The number of UK deaths attributed to covid-19 by 17 Apr was 15,464. This is just over half the total excess death count.

The FT has performed a similar exercise for some other countries as well.
