Yes- that is what I was referring to with 'outliers'

Nothing to do with outliers. Manaus is a warning to us all. Pursue reckless public health policies and prepare to be digging mass graves.

But we can't turn the clock back - we start from 2020 when covid hit.

Also, the incidence of heart disease is relatively stable. It won’t accelerate out of control unless the Government bring in compulsory lard eating.

I get my figures from the link I post-

https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/

which has 54 on the 5th oct and 31 on the 10th oct.

I've always posted the link to the figures I'm using, and the peak was a little under a thousand. There are good reasons to question even that figure, given that people who died with, not of covid, have been classed as covid deaths.

You can use any figures you like. The correct ones show daily deaths of over 1400/day.

No, it doesn’t. My figure are straight from

the graph by date reported

 

I’m done with this Trumpian rewriting of the facts.

 

Good night

We don't need to turn the clock back, we need to start addressing the actual cause of all these deaths, which is the appalling underlying health issues caused by the modern western diet and lifestyle, which lead directly to people dying in large numbers from a virus [covid] which, if they had less chronic conditions [heart disease, obesity, type 2 diabetes etc] would be killing far less of them.

OK, no problem with that  - so why the denial of the huge numbers of covid related deaths then?

Whatever......................................

 

Given the increased hospitalisations and cases in ITU,  we're going to see an increase in deaths.

It's not,  the actual date of death is the most accurate, not the reported date.  Just look at the graphs and you see the second one is all over the place.

Some big mistakes were made lifting lockdown. Too little thinking outside the box and too much of a rush to ‘let’s get back to normal’ in September. Remember all the nonsense about children not being a risk for SPREADING Covid (I think we all know nearly all children aren’t badly affected but why on earth would they not be capable of spreading it?). Then there was more nonsense encouraging people back to the office even when they could work effectively at home.  And the impact so far of students mingling is only the tip of the iceberg.

Of course can’t stay locked down forever and these things were done with the aim of kickstarting the economy. However, it has been handled so badly the economy will I suspect suffer more badly as a result.
