In Week 47 (ONS Released the Full Provisional Figures Moments Ago), Adults Aged 15-44 Saw 27% Rise in Deaths (2022 Compared to 2019)

Last week: In Week 46 (ONS Released the Full Provisional Figures Yesterday), Adults Aged 15-44 Saw 35.5% Rise in Deaths (2022 Compared to 2019)

Latest numbers here.

In week 47 of 2019, 283 adults aged 15-44 died in England and Wales.

In week 47 of 2022, 359 adults aged 15-44 died in England and Wales.

359 – 283 = 76 or 27% higher in 2022 than in 2019.

UK Still Experiences About 1,500 More Deaths Per Week (or 78,000 Per Year) Than Before COVID-19 Average

What’s the cause if it’s not COVID-19 and not “Long COVID”? One can guess and Germany studies the matter.

The following figures came out this morning (England and Wales total deaths per week):

England and Wales deaths per week 47

England and Wales deaths per week, now with week 47 (it’s higher this year than it was last year)

Source: ONS

Here is how that compared to pre-COVID-19 years:

Deaths above normal in 2022

Deaths above normal in 2022, based on complete statistics, not a random sample. Values above 0 mean deaths higher than pre-COVID-19 for a given week. Counting the deaths since week 22, we have 37,000 more deaths in England and Wales this year than average prior to the pandemic. That’s a LOT of people.

New Paper: Autopsy-based Histopathological Characterization of Myocarditis After Anti-SARS-CoV-2-Vaccination


Autopsy-based histopathological characterization of myocarditis after anti-SARS-CoV-2-vaccination…

Likelihood assessment of vaccine-induced

Causality or correlation?

Presence of myocarditis with temporal association to vaccination event


Integration of histological phenotype, clinical presentation, and laboratory findings indicate no alternative differential diagnosis

Abstract infographic

Cases of myocarditis

Have been diagnosed clinically,

by laboratory tests,


(in the context of mRNA-based anti-SARS-CoV-2 vaccination)

Autopsy-based description

We describe,

Cardiac autopsy findings and common characteristics of myocarditis,

with vaccine-induced myocardial inflammation representing the likely or possible cause of death.

Our findings establish the histological phenotype of lethal vaccination-associated myocarditis.

Standardized autopsies

Performed on 25 persons

25 bodies found unexpectedly dead at home,

within 20 days following SARS-CoV-2 vaccination


Patchy, focal, interstitial myocardial T-lymphocytic and macrophage

predominantly of the CD4 positive sub- set, (T Helper cells)

associated with mild myocyte damage.

Autopsy findings indicated

Death due to acute arrhythmogenic cardiac failure.


Myocarditis can be a potentially lethal complication following mRNA-based anti-SARS-CoV-2 vaccination.

Our findings may aid in adequately diagnosing unclear cases after vaccination,

and in establishing a timely diagnosis in vivo, thus,

providing the framework for adequate monitoring and early treatment of severe clinical cases.

In Week 46 (ONS Released the Full Provisional Figures Yesterday), Adults Aged 15-44 Saw 35.5% Rise in Deaths (2022 Compared to 2019)

The official numbers.

The underlying figures:

Deaths for week 46. Ages 15-44 in 2022:

Adult deaths  2022

Same for 2019:

That’s 354 compared to 271 before pandemic.

13,236 Deaths in One Week in the UK (Far Higher Than Pre-COVID-19)

The latest official slant is that it’s not COVID-19. So what is it then killing so many people?

Today’s statement from ONS:

The number of deaths involving COVID-19 in the UK continued to fall from 583 to 471 in the latest week (ending 18 November 2022).

There were a total of 13,236 deaths registered in the UK in the latest week, which was 7.7% above the five-year average.

Deaths involving COVID-19 accounted for 3.6% of all deaths in the UK in the latest week; this is a fall from 4.4% in the previous week.

Of all deaths involving COVID-19 registered in the UK in the latest week 401 were registered in England, 21 in Wales, 40 in Scotland and 8 in Northern Ireland.

In England, the number of deaths involving COVID-19 fell among those aged 25 to 44 years, and 65 years and over. Deaths remained similar among those aged 24 years and under, and those aged 45 to 64 years.

There were no deaths involving COVID-19 among those aged 24 years and under. COVID-19 deaths were low among those aged 25 to 44 years.

Deaths involving COVID-19 rose in Yorkshire and The Humber, fell in the North East, the North West, the East Midlands, the East of England, London, the South East and the South West, and remained stable in the West Midlands.

Our data are based on deaths registered in the UK and include all deaths where “novel coronavirus (COVID-19)” was mentioned on the death certificate. More information for England and Wales is available in our weekly Death registrations and occurrences by local authority/health board dataset.

“There were a total of 13,236 deaths registered in the UK in the latest week,” they say, “which was 7.7% above the five-year average” and it is far higher if one doesn’t count 2021 and 2020, two pandemic years. So many people are dying. Why? They need to investigate the root cause.

Dr. John Campbell has already responded to it:

England and Wales Still Lose ~2000 ‘Too Many’ People Every Week (Deaths Compared to Pre-Pandemic Levels)

ONS had an update earlier today:

The total numbers of deaths remain conspicuously big:


Increased deaths in England and Wales (blue is the total, red is the 2022 increase over pre-COVID-19 levels)

The Decline of COVID-19 Severity and Lethality Over Two Years of Pandemic (Center for Health Emergencies, Bruno Kessler Foundation, Trento, Italy)

Description: (research paper here)

Clear graphics from Italy, The decline of COVID-19 severity and lethality over two years of pandemic…

20 to 40-fold reductions during the period of dominance of Omicron compared to the initial acute phase.

Phase 1, Ancestral

Probability of hospitalization per infection of 5.4%

Probability of ICU admission of 0.65%

Probability of death of 2.2%

Phase 5, Omicron

Probability of hospitalization, 95.1% reduction in risk

Probability of ICU admission, 97.3% reduction in risk

Probability of death, 97.5% reduction in risk

Using epidemiological and genomic surveillance data

To estimate the number of daily infections in Italy in the first two years of pandemic.

Attack rate

Ascertainment of SARS-CoV-2 infections

Phase 1 (ancestral)


Attack rate 2.8%

Phase 2 (ancestral)

Less stringent NPIs

Attack rate 11.4%

Phase 3 Alpha variant

Mid -February 2021 to early July 2021

Alpha infected about 10.1% of the Italian population

Phase 4, Delta

Second half of 2021

Progressive relaxation of NPIs

Attack rate 17.3%

Phase 5, Omicron

End of December 2021

Attack rate, 51.1% of the Italian population became infected with Omicron

Evolution of population susceptibility

Percentage of the population susceptible to SARS-CoV-2

End of first phase, 97.5%

February 20, 2022, 13%

By February 20th, 2022

a marked proportion of individuals unprotected against SARS-CoV-2 infection can be found among vaccinated subjects,

due to the waning of vaccine protection

Evolution of COVID-19 severity and lethality

Probability of hospitalisation

Probability of ICU admission

Probability of death

Evolution of population susceptibility

Natural, post infection immunity is now the main factor reducing population sensitivity

Vaccination protection is seen to be declining

Omicron natural infection had the largest protective effect

Repeat exposure to omicron (and sub variants) is likely to have the same effect going forward.

NPIs will reduce repeat exposures

NPIs will reduce exposure to other respiratory viruses such as RSV
