There’s No Plan to Defeat COVID-19 and Many People Are Still Dying

Here in the UK, COVID-19 spirals out of control again. Almost 4 years have passed and there’s still no solution to it. In England, COVID-19 cases, deaths, and further escalations (hospitalisations) soared 30% in one week.

Based on the numbers released by ONS this morning, excess deaths across the country remain high.

Here is 2019:

From FDA to MHRA: are drug regulators for hire?

Money derived from Industry

US Food and Drug Administration, $3,416,000,000 (2022)

The revolving door

FDA, nine out of 10 of its past commissioners, 2006 to 2019 went on to secure roles linked with pharmaceutical companies…

2005 UK, House of Commons’ health committee

Industry funding could lead MHRA, to “lose sight of the need to protect and promote public health above all else as it seeks to win fee income from the companies.”

BMJ investigation (2022)

We found that industry money permeates the globe’s leading regulators,

raising questions about their independence

Sociologist Donald Light, Rowan University, New Jersey

“Like the FDA, the TGA was founded to be an independent institute.

However, being largely funded by fees from the companies whose products it is charged to evaluate is a fundamental conflict of interest,

and a prime example of institutional corruption.”

It is no longer possible for doctors and patients to receive unbiased, rigorous evaluations from drug regulators.


“It’s the opposite of having a trustworthy organisation independently and rigorously assessing medicines.

They’re not rigorous, they’re not independent, they are selective, and they withhold data.

Doctors and patients must appreciate how deeply and extensively drug regulators can’t be trusted so long as they are captured by industry funding.”

Revisiting financial conflicts of interest in FDA advisory committees

Large study, FDA advisory committee members over 15 years,

those with financial interests solely in the sponsoring firm were more likely to vote in favour of the sponsor’s product.

They also harm trust in government, media, and the medical profession

Week ending 25 August 2023 (Week 34)

England and Wales

10,086 deaths

203 mentioned novel coronavirus

2.0% of all deaths

Of the 203 deaths

67.0% (136 deaths) recorded as underlying cause of death

Deaths registered in the UK

11,522, (4.5% above five-year average)

Deaths in Week 31 (Latest on Record for England and Wales) Up 12% Since Pre-COVID-19 Years

I‘ve just retrieved today’s data from ONS to assess the risk of dying after COVID-19 spread to the population in 2019, seeing that people my age group die a lot more. In the latest week on record, based on the data published an hour ago, 11.99% more people died than in the 5 years prior to the pandemic.

Here’s 2019:

New ONS Data on Deaths (Total Mortality) Released, Deaths Still a Lot Higher Than Before Pandemic

I‘ve refreshed the ONS site repeatedly until I got the new data at 9:30 AM on Tuesday, i.e. the typical time slot (weekly). A minute ago the following was released:

Week 29 deaths in 2023

Summer deaths for England and Wales still around 10k per week. It used to be 9k per week.

Compare to 2019, week 28:

UK Statistics: Deaths Remain Very High in 2023

I‘ve just retrieved today’s new data release from ONS, showing that deaths for the latest week on record (in England and Wales) are about 10% higher than what they were before COVID-19. Is the pandemic over? Also, have we ruined people’s health? Many young adults are dying at alarming rates. It’s not about elderly people.

2023 week 28 deaths

Older (not by a lot): European excess deaths

Deaths Soared 17% for Young Adults in Just Four Years

UK deaths H1 2023: Deaths by week, by age range/bracket; Totals shown

IF the pandemic is over and we can give up on distancing and masking, then how come so many more people die (than before the pandemic)? For my age group (ages 15-44) in England and Wales, 7,455 deaths were registered in 2019 H1 (January-June), compred to 8,709 deaths in 2023 H1. That’s a 17% increase in deaths in just 4 years.

How come?

The deaths of under ones in 2019 H1: 1252. 2023 H1: 1281. For ages 1-14 it’s 512 deaths in 2019 H1, 505 deaths in 2023 H1. So they did not really suffer as much. It’s widely known that COVID-19 has little effect on young people. here are the complete numbers.

Age under 1: 1281
01-04: 197
05-09: 116
10-14: 192
15-19: 484
20-24: 644
25-29: 901
30-34: 1455
35-39: 2187
40-44: 3038
