Interesting to see how COVID deaths compared with other causes of death during the second wave in the UKâ€¦
As we can see from the chart above, the second wave pretty much peaked in January 2021.
Looking at the ONS data for that month we see:
People keep saying “What about other causes of death?”
They say that we don’t lockdown for other diseases, and they ask why should COVID be any different.
It’s true to say that other causes of death are significant, but they are in a different ballpark compared to COVID.
If there was no lockdown and COVID was allowed to run rampant, it would’ve been much worse…
