Still Seeing About 1,000 More Deaths Per Week in England and Wales (Than Before the Pandemic)

IN the months of December-January/February there are typically many deaths due to the low temperatures, but it is all relative in the northern hemisphere (climate and general population age/health as factors, comparing year to year by the week).

Today’s new data from ONS adds Week 49 to the record, showing 11,318 deaths in England and Wales this year compared to 10,585 in 2014-2019 on average. In 2019 COVID-19 was already here, resulting in 10,816 deaths. So the true pre-COVID-19 figure would be 2014-2018 or about 10,450 – i.e. almost 1,000 more deaths than this year’s Week 49.

More of the same. No recovery seen. The population here did not grow 10% since the pandemic started.
