The number of deaths from coronavirus drops below 100 for the first time in five months

The number of people dying from the coronavirus every week has dropped to double digits for the first time in five months, official data shows.

According to the Office for National Statistics, a total of 88 people died of the disease in England and Wales in the week ending Aug. 21.

It’s the first time that weekly Covid fatalities have dropped below 100 in 23 weeks, when 44 people succumbed to the virus in the week ending March 13.

Today’s figure marks a 35 percent drop from the previous week’s 135 deaths and a massive drop from the more than 8,000 deaths a week at the height of the crisis in mid-April.

But the ONS report showed that fatalities from all other causes are above the five-year average for the second straight week.

The number of deaths in hospitals and care homes remains lower than expected, but the number of passers-by in their own homes has risen sharply.

More than 800 more people die in their homes compared to the five-year average, from a variety of conditions, including strokes and heart attacks.

Experts say many people are still too scared to use the NHS for fear of getting Covid-19, while others don’t want to burden healthcare.

The statistics show the continued fall of Covid-19 in Britain, and also show that eight times as many people are dying of the flu and it’s getting worse.

At least 1,151 people had the flu or pneumonia listed on their death certificate in the past week, up from 1,002 a week earlier and the highest since mid-May.

But the ONS report showed that fatalities from all other causes are above the five-year average for the second straight week. Flu and pneumonia deaths (light blue line) are now eight times higher than Covid-19

The number of additional deaths in private homes in England and Wales not related to the coronavirus has surpassed the number of Covid-19 deaths per week in all settings

In the week to August 21, there were a total of 9,631 deaths, which is 474 more than would normally be expected at that time of the year (5.2 percent).

It is the second straight week that the number of deaths has exceeded the five-year average, after 9,392 people in England and Wales died last week.

Only two regions in England – the Northeast and Yorkshire and the Humber – had fewer total deaths than the five-year average, 1.8 percent and 2.6 percent lower, respectively.

London suffered the greatest number of excessive deaths, with 853 more people dying than statisticians expected (8 percent).

Boris Johnson has been labeled “heartless” by families of Covid victims for declining a meeting

Boris Johnson has been charged with another turnaround after refusing to meet with campaigners representing families affected during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Prime Minister said ‘of course I will meet the next of kin’ when he was questioned last week in an interview about efforts by the Covid-19 Bereaved Families for Justice group to secure a meeting.

But the campaigners who were trying to get a quick public inquiry into how the government is handling the crisis shared a letter from Mr. Johnson in which he “unfortunately” refused to meet with the group.

“It’s a U-turn followed by a U-turn,” said campaign co-founder Jo Goodman, who lost her father Stuart to the virus.

The Prime Minister did a 360: dodging five letters, then meeting up on live TV to meet us, and now quietly telling us he’s too busy. It’s heartless. ‘

Care homes and hospitals are still registering fewer deaths than usual at this time of the year.

This, the RVS says, is because hospitals are treating fewer patients because of Covid precautions and social distance measures.

Care homes also report fewer deaths than the five-year average. US experts explained that Covid-19 likely accelerated the deaths of people who would have died from other causes, meaning the year’s fatalities are front loaded.

However, deaths in private homes remained above the five-year average, with 825 more people dying than average.

The RVS said, “ Some of these deaths at home may be people who would otherwise have died elsewhere, especially in hospitals, where we see much lower mortality rates than usual at the time of year.

This may indicate that patients are not being hospitalized or discharged earlier. In old age deaths, people may choose to die at home instead of being hospitalized. The increase in the number of deaths in private homes will be further investigated by the RVS.

The government-run agency also released a new figure showing that more than 57,300 deaths related to Covid-19 have now been recorded in the UK.

The ONS said there had been 52,217 deaths in England and Wales by August 21. In Scotland, 4,222 fatalities from the virus had been recorded on 23 August.

Northern Ireland has reported 871 deaths as of August 26, meaning a total of 57,310 Covid-19 fatalities have been registered in the UK.

These are all patients who have the virus listed on their death certificate, even if they were not diagnosed with the virus or had a confirmed test.

Only two regions in England - the Northeast and Yorkshire and the Humber - had fewer total deaths than the five-year average, 1.8 percent and 2.6 percent lower, respectively.

Meanwhile, the number of additional deaths in private homes in England and Wales not related to the coronavirus has surpassed the number of Covid-19 deaths in all settings per week in all settings.

Since the week ending June 26, there have been more non-coronavirus deaths recorded than would normally be expected in private homes than recorded deaths related to Covid-19, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

Private homes have also experienced the highest rate of additional deaths not linked to Covid-19 of any institution. This is despite the fact that overall non-coronavirus deaths have fallen below average.

The ONS analyzed records of additional deaths unrelated to Covid-19 in England and Wales up to July 10.

In the week ending July 10, 672 deaths were recorded in private homes above the five-year average without coronavirus.

Hospitals, nursing homes, and hospices all had fewer than average deaths that week without Covid-19.

In comparison, there were 366 deaths related to the coronavirus in England and Wales that week in hospitals, nursing homes, private homes, hospices and other settings.
