The number of cases now equates to far fewer deaths now, thanks to the vaccination programme and the anti-virals that are now used to treat Covid.

You may want to know about the number of cases, but you don't need to know, just as you don't need a running commentary on other diseases that lead to deaths.

Covid is no longer the biggest killer, so it's time to end the paranoia.

Those are the weekly figures, not the whole year..

Many people who would have died this winter were killed by COVID in 2020 or 2021. In other words, it shortened their life by a year or two. You can only die once.

There’s loads of dead people I don’t know, in fact I don’t know hardly any of the people that die every day from any reason.

Also, the last two of the five years had higher than average death rates (due to COVID), this increases the current five year average -

Example
2015 - 100
2016 - 100
2017 - 100
2018 - 100
2019 - 100
5 year average - 100

2019 - 100
2018 - 100
2019 - 100
2020 - 120
2021 - 125
5 year average - 109

2018 - 100
2019 - 100
2020 - 120
2021 - 125
2022 - 110
5 year average - 111

So, our current five year average is still higher than before COVID.
Averages and percentages ……….have been used since their invention to prove or debunk any argument whichever way the person using them want the narrative to go.

A. Because it was factual
B. I would have looked for anyone else

As for proving a point
1 and 2 were killing as many before (well I assume it was but they only mentioned 1 which was Alzheimer's just for you). Up jumps number 3 brand new, kills loads and still kills loads. I am not gonna get sucked into arguements on this topic I saw his post I searched and found it was 3rd and posted. That is all. No need for the Spanish Inquisition or I will have to go get the comfy chair again

Except its not brand new anymore - as to 'Loads' ... well not really.

If you want to see how covid deaths stack up against overall deaths, see ;

Of the deaths registered in Week 8 in England and Wales, 766 mentioned "novel coronavirus (COVID-19)", accounting for 6.9% of all deaths

Which you seem not to have.

If case rates rise, hospital admissions & deaths will rise. This is especially true as the 3rd jab efficacy wanes. There is no medical consensus that I have seen that defines how long the booster lasts. I'd like to know how these metrics are progressing. You may wish to stick your head in the sand but there are many who want to be aware of what is happening in the country. We need to remain vigilant.

If you want to be a dick I can happily remove you from the topic.

Rising cases do not automatically mean rising hospital admissions, or deaths, as was noted in the figures many times over the last few months.

You are free to obsess over one virus if you want, I will be carrying on with my life, and worry about more important things that actually matter to me.
