By request, this is a look at Leicester – an area that has been disproportionately affected by govt restrictions since March 👇🏼
📊 These graphs show “cases”, COVID PCR Positive deaths, the monthly COVID-related deaths and the NHS general & COVID-related activity.
ℹ️ ONS reports on overall deaths per region. East Midlands has seen 38,833 deaths of all causes since March 14th 2020, 4,191 of which had a #coronavirus PCR Positive test. This region has a population of ~4,811,000.
🤔 Leicester represents ~8% of East Midlands population and is the largest city of the region. Interestingly, their COVID-related deaths are also ~8% of the regions total. Hardly panic stations…
〰️ East Midlands have been tracking the Total Mortality 5 year average since June, with an uplift only witnessed over the last 3 weeks.
❓How much of that is due to declining health caused by government restrictions and scaremongering… it is hard to tell.
🏥 The Leicester Hospitals, like the majority across the country, are continuing to run very light since the spring lockdown.
To be clear, that is a conscious choice, as we have 8M+ patients on the NHS England Hospitals waiting list. The “covid surge” has yet to manifest.
Hope this is useful
🤞🏼Whilst this is an ultra specific post, hopefully it offers some useful insight for us all as we reflect on our region.
🤔 Leicester have been singled out as one of the most restricted areas in the country… yet the death toll tells a very different story to that which we hear from MSM and Govt.
