Massive exaggeration of covid-19 deaths calls for an urgent inquiry.
News that the real covid-19 deaths are one third the figures published raises numerous questions because of the whole set of consequences that has arisen from the impact of Covid-19. Published research by Oxford University revealing that many of those who had Covid-19 on their death certificate actually died of other causes, raises alarm bells .
Many jobs have been lost, schools have been closed, and the future of many pupils interrupted as a result of the exaggeration. It is arguable that even the true rate of deaths are one-third of the official numbers of 42,000, it could have been worse without the national lockdown that took place.
The worrying question is why the numbers of deaths were exaggerated so much, whether those who exaggerated the numbers are still in the job. It is not excusable that many of the patients had once been diagnosed with Covid-19, when we know they conclusively died of other causes. The real question is why those who put Covid-19 on their death certificate were not aware of the true cause of their death, or if they were
Wrongly diagnosing death is a serious failing, more so when done during a pandemic. Why did the Office Of National Statistics register these as COVID-19 deaths, or is this a failing that should purely be blamed on those who did the death certificate?
Even when the pandemic was fresh with little information known, it was a struggle to get a worrying proportion of the public to fully co-operate with restrictions. Revelation of this nature is a knock on the public morale.
With members of the government’s scientific body like Patric Wallace, making further projections for Covid-19 deaths this winter, it is worth reminding them that the public are already aware that numbers were badly exaggerated last time. They would nee dto be assured that these exaggerations will not be repeated.
Without addressing the fact that 67% of the Uk deaths recorded in the Covid- 19 deaths this year were not real, it is almost vain stressing predictions about future deaths relating to Covid-19.
Rising infections in the Uk is leading to plans for further restrictions on our liberty, especially as nobody wants to see even 1,000 deaths caused by Covid-19.
