ONS: Deaths from Flu and Pneumonia Three Times Higher than Total of Coronavirus


New figures from the UK’s Office of National Statistics show that the number of deaths from flu and pneumonia is three times higher than the total number of coronavirus deaths this year.


The figures show that there were 18,500 total deaths in England and Wales in the week up until April 10, which is around 8,000 above what would be considered “normal” at this time of year. Around a third of those 18,500 are linked to coronavirus.


‘But the figures for 2020 also show the impact of flu and pneumonia compared to coronavirus’ reports the BBC who went on to say ‘ number of deaths from flu and pneumonia – at more than 32,000 – is three times higher than the total number of coronavirus deaths this year.”


The report points out that the 18,500 death figure is the highest since January 2000, ‘when there was a bad flu outbreak.’ The number of deaths recorded in the week up until April 10 in 2015, when there was also a particularly deadly flu season, is also relatively close to the number of recorded coronavirus deaths in the same week this year.


These figures confirm what a growing number of experts claim that the response to Covid-19 has been flawed, based on wildly inaccurate computer models. Others point to the fact that NHS hospitals are four timed emptier than normal and overspill hospitals built to prevent existing hospitals from being overwhelmed were never used to claim that the coronavirus threat was wildly exaggerated and based on assumptions, and rubbish computer models.
