Latest ONS, PHE & FHM COVID data – 2nd Feb 2021 👇🏼
❗️We have a sustained material excess in Total Mortality. Our prior post explored the timing and volume correlations with some other factors outside of PCR Positive data.
🤧 Pneumonia deaths have surged in comparison to the 5 year averages. A weakened, damaged and frail body will experience more respiratory distress and failure – as we are seeing.
Winter vs Spring Excess Deaths peaks are markedly different, as is the lack of effect Lockdowns and many other restrictions/interventions are having on bending the curve.
❓It begs the question, did Lockdowns affect the shape and timing of the peak in April, as many claim?…
PCR Positivity Rate is tanking, whilst testing is continuing to ramp. This must be due to increasing proportions of tests conducted on those without respiratory illness symptoms – e.g. NHS, Business and Surveillance.
📉 In contrast, the ratio of Deaths to Positive tests has been increasing from the beginning of the third national lockdown.
Less positives, more winter deaths and more Lockdown-induced deaths, combined with winter lethality expectations of respiratory viruses are all contributing to this phenomenon…
…another blow for Lockdown effectiveness in terms of limiting fatal outcomes. 🔐
