Deaths Rose Sharply This September Compared to Prior Septembers (More Than 10% Higher Than in 2020)

Deaths across the UK are very concerning. We’ve not seen numbers like these before. I wrote about it at the start of this week because the trend isn’t limited to summer. The heatwaves cannot be blamed for it. It’s so bad that mortality in my age group rose 10% (yes, 10%!) and now have complete figures for September 2022 (update and released 2 days ago). This is what it looks like.

September 2018 deaths by week in England and Wales:

9,445 9,191 9,305 9,150

September 2019 deaths by week in England and Wales:

9,695 9,513 9,440 9,517

September 2020 deaths by week in England and Wales:

7,739 9,811 9,523 9,634

September 2021 deaths by week in England and Wales:

8,797 11,035 11,009 10,684

September 2022 deaths by week in England and Wales:

10,753 10,673 8,751 10,960

Sum for September per year (note: they break it down by week, not month)
2018: 37091
2019: 38165
2020: 36707
2021: 41525
