Deaths below average for sixth week in a row

For the sixth week in a row the Office for National Statistics (ONS) has reported deaths below average in England and Wales.

For the week ending July 24 there were 8,891 deaths registered, which is 1.8 per cent below the five-year average (161 deaths fewer).

While it is the second week in a row to see a small increase in deaths overall, deaths registered with Covid-19 continue to trend steeply downwards with only 217 registered, a 26.4 per cent drop from the previous week.

Deaths in hospitals and care homes are now well below average. However, deaths in private homes continue to be significantly elevated, with 727 above average that week, of which only 24 were registered with Covid-19. Since the start of the outbreak there have been a breathtaking 21,260 additional deaths at home, of which only 2,371 were registered with Covid-19, leaving 18,889 of other causes and in need of explanation.

Researchers from Sheffield and Loughborough universities have analysed ONS data and estimated that 21,544 additional deaths during the first eight weeks of the lockdown alone were caused not by Covid-19 but by the conditions of the lockdown itself.

Despite this, a smaller proportion of the UK population has died so far in 2020 than died in the 1999-2000 flu season, suggesting the almost completely unnoticed flu epidemic of that year was much more deadly than the Covid-19 outbreak has been so far in the UK. It remains to be seen if a Covid resurgence will make up the difference, though there is not yet any sign of an increase in serious cases or hospitalisations that would portend an approaching spike in the death toll.

Is it not much more likely that the epidemic is over, and we should be swiftly getting back to normal? Not cowering behind our muzzles but abandoning social distancing and getting on with building up any outstanding deficit in population immunity during the summer months when influenza is in abeyance? That is what a sensible population would be doing, one that hadn’t been terrorised into mindless compliance by an incompetent government witlessly following the dubious pronouncements of its over-cautious advisers.

  1. THE CORONAVIRUS ACT 2020 IS NULL & VOID
    THE PEOPLE’S BREXIT
    We are a legal research and campaign group and right now we are fighting for the Democracy and Rights of the People of the UK.
    We are The People’s Brexit, a group of Solicitors, legal researchers and campaigners. We have been extensively researching the current legal situation since the illegal ‘lockdown’ deprived us all of our Democracy, Human Rights and Freedoms.
    We have now established that The Coronavirus Act 2020 is null and void. There are many reasons for this, the main one being that S1(1) of the Act defines ‘coronavirus’ as being ‘covid-19’ or it’s other name ‘SARS Cov-2’. However, by virtue of the fact that it is not legally, medically or scientifically recognised as a disease or virus it cannot be legislated against, and this makes the whole Act null and void.
    The reason for this is that ‘covid-19’ has not been subjected to the 130 year established legal, medical and scientific procedure that recognises if it is actually a disease or virus or not, which is known as the Koch Postulates. This involves purifying and isolating the ‘disease’ or ‘virus’ and proving that it actually causes the illness that it is claimed that it does. The Government has acted Ultra Vires and against the Rule of Law.
    Further, the test that is being used is called the RT-PCR test and the inventor said it should NEVER be used for diagnostics. This is because it is not a ‘gold-standard’ test that would give 100% accuracy. In fact, there is a false positive rate of 80% for this test. This means that the test is meaningless as it is just testing for genetic material and not coronavirus and even that is only a real positive for one in five people. Other tests being used are as bad or even worse. Further, using these tests anyone can test either positive or negative depending upon how many cycles the specimen is amplified by and as such the tests can be easily rigged.
    We want the Government to be immediately banned from conducting any further ‘coronavirus’ testing. They are not really testing for ‘coronavirus’ but these results are being weaponised and used to deprive us of our Democracy, Human Rights and Freedoms, also our finances are being affected and our economy destroyed all based upon false results. People are also dying as treatment is being denied as the NHS focus is only on so-called ‘covid-19’. People have also been so frightened by the relentless Media brainwashing that they are now not requesting urgent medical help when they need it.
