What is the average number of deaths per million ‘related to’ Covid-19?

For more than a year the public has been presented with a bewildering array of figures on a daily basis relating to the Covid-19 pandemic. To make things even more confusing, the figures quoted in the press conferences have changed, the criteria for defining them have changed, and often highly dubious numbers arising out of ‘modeling’ have been used rather than actual facts.

It now seems clear that the Government will be pressing ahead with its plans for a ‘Covid passport’, without which citizens will be prevented from doing all manner of normal things.

What is the average number of deaths per million ‘related to’ Covid-19?

The simple figures I am presenting below might be considered by many people to be a key factor in deciding whether Covid-19 is indeed still a justification for draconian and totalitarian measures. I have shown the figure for the UK as well as the figures for the five largest EU27 countries as a comparison. Those five countries represent two-thirds of the total EU27 population.

7-day rolling average of deaths per day per million, ‘related to’ Covid-19

United Kingdom: 0.45

Germany: 1.46

Spain: 1.85

France: 4.06

Italy: 6.78

Poland: 10.09

In the UK each day, less than one person per two million in the total population is dying from a cause where Coronavirus is mentioned on the death certificate.

On any given day you are now three times more likely to die (of a cause where Coronavirus is mentioned) in Germany, nine times more likely to die in France, and 22 times more likely to die in Poland.

I shouldn’t have to say this, but…

To avoid being banned by social media, I remind all UK readers to follow the official Coronavirus health advice published by the UK Government. The information I have presented is just that — information — and it comes from official sources.

In the UK each day, less than one person per two million in the total population is dying from a cause where Coronavirus is mentioned on the death certificate.

Total deaths

For the last two weeks, the total number of deaths from all causes in the UK has fallen significantly below the five-year rolling average, according to the Office for National Statistics. In the last two weeks, there has been no ‘excess mortality as a result of Covid-19. In fact, fewer people are now dying from all causes in the UK than would be expected, based on the last five years’ figures.
