So from ONS figures, deaths for the first 13 weeks of the year are 3000 down on the 5 year average.

The week ended 27/03/2020 did show an increase of circa 1,000 or 10% increase on the 5 year average.

Interesting to see corresponding figures next week when they are released, given that we are now hearing of 500 or so deaths per day relating to Covid 19.

But I think people are getting better than they are dieing but I do still think goverment over reacted.

I imagine that some usual causes of deaths would be less than the norm: car accidents, exercise related (heart attacks) etc.

This wouldn't be a huge number I expect, but still must be lower than normal.

‘Only’ c700 had died in the UK as at 27/03 from a condition with COVID19 linkage.  Still far too early to be drawing any conclusions from such data that is available.

I don’t think anyone has ever disputed or tried to hide the fact that far more people will recover than will die but, whilst so many people are losing their lives either directly due to the virus or because the virus is causing serious complications to existing medical conditions then harsh measures need to be taken. 
 

I know it’s tough buddy but, I’m also sure you want your loved ones to be protected as much as the rest of us.

Yeah good point.

Probably a grim thing to say but I wonder how the current situation will affect suicide rates?

Letters dropping through the post. Just got mine. Bit disappointed it was a printed signature on the back and not a penned one but I guess he’s been busy.

Suicide will be up. Domestic violence and murder in the family will be up. Death from bad withdrawal from drugs will be up. Death from untreated illness will be up (from lack of GP access and reduced hospital capacity). Injuries and fatal accidents in the home will be up (falling from ladders doing DIY, roof work etc). But vastly outweighed by the reduction in deaths on the road.

I suspect.

Not sure the 'savings' in road related deaths will make up for losses elsewhere tbh.  

In a typical year the average number of road deaths per year hovers around 1750 whereas its over 5000 for suicides and over 7000 for alcohol related deaths.

Judging by some of the pictures on here, that last number alone is gonna go up the most!

The lockdowns will be drastically reducing flu deaths too I'd have thought. It's not just the transmission of Covid that will be down due to self-isolation measures. Trying to draw conclusions about the virility of Covid from overall death rates right now serves very little purpose, especially given we remain some weeks away from the worst of it, or so we're told.

Enjoyed watching him in a Derby shirt.  Doesn't sound to serious, hopefully he'll be one of the majority that brush it off without any complications.
