Ongoing Sharp Increases in Deaths Across England and Wales This Year

IN the latest data release about England and Wales (mortality so far this year) we can see that in the latest week on record for 2024 we had 11,076 deaths.

2014-2019 average: 9,804. For the same week.

That’s a steep increase.

England and Wales Deaths Rose From 10,059 to 11,170 in 5 Years (for Week 17, Latest on Record), We Need to Demand Answers About the Cause Because Young People’s Deaths Rose Almost 20%

11,170 should be expected around wintertime, not spring

I‘ve downloaded yesterday’s data from ONS and it seems consistent with what I saw in prior weeks.

For people under 45, in 2019 we saw 325 deaths (week 17). This year it’s 387. That’s an increase by over 19%. For the previous week it was an increase of over 23%.

What’s causing this?

[UK Health Crisis] Young Deaths in Week 16 2019: 320. Young Deaths in Week 16 2024 (New Numbers): 394. That’s a Fact. Deaths Increased by 23.1% Among Young People. It’s Statistically Significant.

I AM defining “young” as the age bracket 0-44 and compare official government data from 2019 (5 years ago) and the latest, i.e. from this year (same week). 2019 total deaths:

See totals.

We now have new data for the same week in 2024:

These types of planned revisions should not be confused with errors in released statistics, which are genuine mistakes. Such mistakes occur rarely and, when they do happen, corrections are made in a timely manner, announced and clearly explained to users in line with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics (Principle 2, Practice 7).

Compare the following totals (same age range):

2024-young-deaths

So that’s more than 23% increase in deaths (among young people).

The data does not lie.

Week 16 2019: 9,025 Deaths in England and Wales. Now? 11,877. An Increase of 2,852 for the Week Alone! A ’9/11′ Per Week is the ‘New Normal’?

I WISH this was only a joke or science fiction, but these are people’s lives. Each death is a tragedy to a lot of people.

A few hours ago ONS released the latest mortality numbers. It’s rather shocking as it shows a truly massive increase in deaths. For the prior week we saw ~20% increase in deaths and now, based on the official numbers, we’re looking at 32% increase in deaths. If medicine improves over time and birth rates are low here, then 5 years passing should not result in such a surge in deaths.

We need answers. Not just AstraZeneca running into the dark.

Neanwhile, AstraZeneca runs away from its ‘best-selling’ product.
