Well said Robert, I was beginning to despair of the increasingly hysterical tone of comments in this thread.
Hear in Britain latest figures from the Government’s Office of National Statistics, which publishes numbers of recorded births and deaths every month show that the death rate for the five weeks to 28 March were only 1% above the average rate for winter deaths, well within the acceptable level of yearly variation.
Statistics are being manipulated and misrepresented. Since the death of a well known comedian was attributed to coronavirus and his family stated it was untrue, he had died of heart failure after a prolonged struggle with that condition, many more families have spoken out to reveal deaths were recorded as being “coronavirus related” when that was simply not the case.

Opted for comfortable retirement before I was fifty due to health problems and burn out. Now spend my time writing and goofing around. Home: northern England..
