    Now we are using the same calculating method as Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, I wonder what they would be if we used the same calculating method as China?

    So, other excess deaths have just increased by more than 5,000.

    More contradiction.

    Yeah funny that. I wonder how many of the "contracted the corona virus" figures are actually covid 19 positives and not flu or the common cold numbers that have been lumped in.

    Didn't 'excess deaths' recently go into negative figures?

    Well, my only personal experience of a 'Covid’ death was my daughters boyfriends grandfather. He was 103 years old, went in hospital with breathing and heart related problems and died. He was tested twice while in there for Covid - results were negative but the boyfriend told me that ‘Covid related illness' was on the death certificate. So it looks like he was a 'Covid’ death. I wonder how many more like him there were?

    You mean lately? Surely not overall.

    Yes recently, a few weeks ago. I'm not sure if they were removed from the total covid death figures, but clearly they should have been as excess deaths were used as the criteria.

    Lots. If Bojo died from a heart attack next week, that would be recorded as a covid death because he tested positive some months back.
    Highest number of deaths in europe?, bollix.

    It's interesting isn't it? We are beginning to learn that this is leaving some people with seemingly long term illnesses from covid including weaker hearts.. So if it then kills them later, which was to blame? Going to be one of those hindsight situations methinks.

    I think it may be years before we have any grasp on all the facts, and the number of deaths from lack of treatment because of the NHS shutdown and suicides due to lockdown.

    We will never learn the 'facts'...

    Because there will no doubt be a lengthy and expensive 'inquiry' that doesn't have the scope to ask the relevant questions...

    And the final statement will say that 'lessons will be learned', but won't point out what that is in relation to...

    There may be a lowly scape goat...
    (goebbels has already set the 'led by science' stance in stone)

    But the 'establishment' always looks after it's own!
