England and Wales (Most of UK) Deaths Rose From 11,740 in 2019 to 14,137 in the Same Period This Year

Sarah Caul’s (ONS) latest update is rather misleading. It says: “In the week ending 27 January 2023 (Week 4), 14,137 deaths were registered in England and Wales; 579 of these deaths mentioned “novel coronavirus (COVID-19)”, accounting for 4.1% of all deaths.”

They then try to present it a) as a decline (compared to winter’s peak, not compared to prior years) and b) nothing to do with COVID-19.

Comparing this data to pre-COVID-19 levels, we actually see an increase of 20.41%.

Nice “end of pandemic” you got there… I’ve not compared by age groups, but if prior weeks’ data can be considered something to judge by, this impacts all age groups. Not good.
