Weekly coronavirus deaths recur in England and Wales for the first time in five months


Another 29 people have died of Covid-19 in England and Scotland, officials confirmed today, as statistics show the number of weekly deaths rose in the second week of September for the first time since April.

NHS England today announced the deaths of another 28 patients in its hospitals, while the Scottish Government confirmed another person had died of the disease. A full UK census is expected later.

Data released today by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) showed 99 people were killed by the disease in the week ended September 11, up from 78 the week before.

While still the second lowest number of registered deaths since March, the 27 percent increase in one week shows a change in the downward trend that has lasted 20 weeks. There have been deaths every week since April 17, three weeks after the lockdown was imposed.

The ONS count announced every day by the Ministry of Health, with the official number of deaths, said the daily average began to rise again on September 7 from seven per day to 22 per day yesterday.

All signs suggest that the virus is recovering in the UK following the lifting of lockdown rules and chief government scientists warned yesterday that the nation must act now to prevent the crisis from spiraling out of control.

The UK could see 50,000 crisis-level cases a day by mid-October and 200 deaths a day in November unless action is taken soon to stem the rising tide of cases, chief scientific adviser Sir Patrick Vallance warned. But scientists have since resorted to the claims – Sir Patrick and Professor Chris Whitty compared the UK's trajectory to Spain and France, saying neither country has anywhere near 50,000 cases per day.

The ONS report made no commitments to warn of a surge in Covid-19 deaths as it did in the cases, but did issue a qualification that August bank holiday may have caused deaths to be unrealistically low the previous week.

A separate report released today by the Independent Statistics Bureau found that seven out of ten people of working age who died of coronavirus between March and June had the disease before lockdown began, showing that all groups are after introduction from restrictions saw a decrease in deaths. Caregivers had the highest death rates during lockdown because they continued to work in high-risk environments.

According to the report, there were just 5,330 deaths among 20- to 64-year-olds in England and Wales – roughly a tenth the total number of victims since the pandemic began.

The increased number of death registrations in the report showed the number had risen for the first time since the week of April 17th.

On that day five months ago, it rose from 6,213 to April 10, peaking at 8,758 when people were dying at the rate of almost one per minute.

ONS data counts the number of people who have died of Covid-19 by looking for mentions of the disease on death certificates.

This includes anyone who was suspected of having the disease as well as those who actually tested positive. The Ministry of Health only counts patients who test positive.

As a result, the ONS's estimate of the total number of people who died from the disease is significantly higher.

Most of the working age adults who have died of COVID-19 caught it before the lockdown.

Seven out of ten coronavirus deaths among adults of working age between March 9 and June 30 were likely caused by an infection that was intercepted before the lockdown.

There were 5,330 deaths among 20 to 64 year olds in England and Wales, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

Of these, 72 percent (3,839) occurred on or before April 25, and the person likely caught the virus before the lockdown, which began March 23.

The ONS's assumption is based on evidence that the maximum time from infection to onset of symptoms is 14 days and there is an average of about 20 days from onset of symptoms to death.

Deaths from Covid-19 among men who work in health and social services were about three times higher if the virus was assumed to be acquired before lockdown than if it was caught during the period.

Among female health and social workers, the death rate was about twice that for those likely to have been infected before the virus was locked.

The lockdown was associated with significantly lower coronavirus death rates in all occupational groups compared to the rates observed before the lockdown.

Men who worked in nursing, recreational and other service professions had the highest death rates from Covid-19 during the lockdown.

After the restrictions were in place, there were 81.3 deaths per 100,000 in these occupations, compared with 32.5 per 100,000 other working-age men.

Working women had “far fewer” deaths than men, but those working in nursing, recreational and other service occupations had higher death rates than their peers in the general population, both before and after lockdown.

In these occupations there were 31.3 deaths per 100,000, compared with 17.5 per 100,000 women of working age.

This can largely be explained by the high rate of caregivers and home caregivers who likely continued to work during the lockdown and were unable to work from home, potentially increasing the risk of infection.

The ONS report states: “During the pandemic, some professions, such as B. Health and Social Professions, continued to work near others. This is one factor that may explain the generally higher rates in such professions. "

Today there are 49,869 in England alone, while the Department of Health counts 36,999 who died within a month of diagnosis, or 40,923 within two months.

ONS experts show that there were 53,376 more deaths this year than would normally be expected in England and Wales in what is referred to as "excessive deaths".

It is understood that the vast majority of these are due in some form to the Covid-19 pandemic. For example, even if people weren't killed directly by the virus, they may have missed life-saving medical care during the lockdown.

Across the UK, there were an estimated 59,281 deaths during the pandemic, many of which are likely Covid-19 deaths. That number may go down as coronavirus deaths remain low and deaths from other causes are lower than usual.

Today's ONS report showed that all-cause deaths are now 5.4 percent above the five-year average for the season.

Hospital deaths remain lower than usual (371 fewer than normal), but more people die at home than usual (830 above average).

Experts in the past have raised concerns that this could be because people avoided medical care during the crisis and became seriously ill and died at home. The number of deaths in nursing homes was also above average in the week ending September 13 (57 more than usual).

Today's report is of grave concern that the virus is now spiraling out of government control as the number of officially registered cases, hospitalizations and deaths rise again.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to hold a public televised briefing tonight where he is expected to confirm that pubs and restaurants in England are banned from opening after 10 p.m. in order to slow the spread of the virus among young adults.

The UK registered another 4,368 coronavirus cases yesterday as government data showed the number of daily infections doubled in 14 days.

Figures from the Ministry of Health show that a little less than 4,000 new infections are currently registered every day – an average of 31 percent more than last Monday (2,998).

Statistics also show that the seven-day rolling average previously increased 48 percent from 2,032 on September 7th.

Health officials also announced 11 more coronavirus deaths, bringing the official Covid-19 death toll to 41,788.

According to government statistics, an average of 22 Britons succumb to the disease every day, up from 12 last Monday and eight the week before, meaning the rate has nearly tripled in 14 days.

In contrast, during the peak of the first wave, more than 1,000 laboratory-confirmed deaths were announced each day.

And 204 people with Covid-19 were admitted to a hospital in England for NHS treatment on Saturday, meaning the average number of admissions tripled from 65 to 187 in 14 days.

The number of newly infected patients in need of hospital care nationwide was around 3,000 in March and April.

Sir Patrick Vallance warned yesterday that the UK will suffer 50,000 new cases of coronavirus a day through mid-October if the spread of the disease is not brought under control and infections continue to double every seven days.

But scientists last night allayed fears that Britain was headed for the milestone and insisted that neither Spain nor France have reached these sky-high levels, despite government fears that Britain is on track to follow its trajectories.

Top scientists believe that during the darkest days of the UK crisis in March and April, there were more than 100,000 cases a day. And other experts believe the dreaded second wave won't be as deadly as the first because doctors can better treat the disease.

Boris Johnson convened a meeting of the Cobra Emergency Committee this morning before revealing his new lockdown plans. The UK's coronavirus alert was raised to four last night, meaning transmission of the virus is "high or exponential."

In a separate report released by the ONS today, it was alleged that seven in ten coronavirus deaths among adults of working age between March 9 and June 30 were likely caused by an infection intercepted before the lockdown .

There were 5,330 deaths among 20- to 64-year-olds in England and Wales, the report said.

Of these, 72 percent (3,839) occurred on or before April 25, and the person likely caught the virus before the lockdown, which began March 23.

The ONS's assumption is based on evidence that the maximum time from infection to onset of symptoms is 14 days and there is an average of about 20 days from onset of symptoms to death.

The death rate from Covid-19 among men working in health and social services was about three times higher when the virus was believed to be acquired before lockdown than when it was caught during the period.

Among female health and social workers, the death rate was about twice that for those likely to be infected before the virus was locked.

The lockdown was associated with significantly lower coronavirus death rates in all occupational groups compared to the rates observed before the lockdown.

Men who worked in nursing, recreational and other service professions had the highest death rates from Covid-19 during the lockdown.

After the restrictions were in place, there were 81.3 deaths per 100,000 in these occupations, compared with 32.5 per 100,000 other working-age men.

Working women had “far fewer” deaths than men, but those working in nursing, recreational and other service occupations had higher death rates than women of the same age in the general population, both before and after lockdown.

In these occupations there were 31.3 deaths per 100,000, compared with 17.5 per 100,000 women of working age.

This can largely be explained by the high rate of caregivers and home caregivers who likely continued to work during the lockdown and were unable to work from home, potentially increasing the risk of infection.

The ONS report states: “During the pandemic, some professions, such as B. Health and social professions, continued to work near others. This is one factor that may explain the generally higher rates in such professions. "

How many people really died from the corona virus in the UK?

Ministry of Health: 41,788

The Ministry of Health's last death toll for all recruitment as of September 22nd is 41,788.

The daily counted data shows how many people died within 28 days of the positive coronavirus test. This was a new deadline set by the Department of Health after it was discovered that Public Health England had counted too many people regardless of how long they died after a test and what they died from.

Only patients who tested positive for the virus are considered, no suspected cases.

National statistical authorities: 57,601

Data compiled by home country statistics shows that 57,601 people across the UK had died from confirmed or suspected Covid-19 by mid-September.

The Office for National Statistics confirmed that as of September 11, 52,482 people in England and Wales with confirmed or suspected Covid-19 had died.

According to the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA), the number of coronavirus deaths in Northern Ireland at the same time was 883.

National Records Scotland – which collects statistics north of the border – said 4,236 people had died nationwide as of September 13.

Excessive deaths: 59,281

The total number of deaths in the United Kingdom as of September 13 is estimated at 59,281.

Excessive deaths are considered an accurate measure of the number of people killed by the pandemic as it encompasses a wider range of victims.

The data not only include people who may have died with Covid-19 without ever having been tested, but also shows how many more people died because, for example, their medical treatment was postponed or who did not come to the hospital or when could you were seriously ill.

Data from England and Wales shows there have been 53,376 additional deaths so far this year, as well as 5,023 in Scotland and 882 in Northern Ireland.

Excessive deaths are the only measure that can and are likely to decrease over time. When the number of deaths from Covid-19 is low, fewer deaths from other causes can cause the number to fall.
