This weeks statistics from the ONS show the increasing number of fatalities using the overall death rate higher again, 76% up on the 5 year average. Interestingly the number of excess deaths not attributed to Covid-19 has fallen from 2607 in the previous week to 1783 now 28% of the excess – I got that prediction wrong!
