Not content with road accident victims being classified as Covid19 deaths because they had a positive Covid19 test in the previous 28 days, the UK Govt appears to have concocted another method of inflating the Covid19 death count in an attempt to keep the UK population living in fear of a seasonal illness.
The Office of National Statistics has been recording respiratory deaths. If you open the 2020 spreadsheet, click the weekly figures you see on line 18 Deaths where the underlying cause was respiratory disease (ICD-10 J00-J99). In the graph below you’ll see the tracking of these respiratory deaths over the last ten years plus 2020.
If you click on the graph it will open to full size in a separate tab so you can view it better. The bold black line is respiratory deaths for the current year. The bold red line is the average. What you will notice from the graph is that part way through the novel Coronavirus seasonal illness epidemic in spring that respiratory deaths started reporting low. In fact they have remained at record low levels throughout the year.
So I decided to investigate the cause. It started with the World Health Organisation. Two new categories for reporting were created by the WHO. U07.1 COVID-19, virus identified and U07.2 COVID-19, virus not identified.
If you look at the ONS spreadsheet 2020 Weekly Figures Covid19 line 19, the reason for the change in respiratory deaths on the graph becomes obvious. Deaths where COVID-19 was mentioned on the death certificate (ICD-10 U07.1 and U07.2). The ONS picked up and started reporting on both U07 categories part way through the Coronavirus seasonal illness epidemic in the spring. What is U07.2 COVID-19, virus not identified? Surely if it not identified it is just suspected Covid19?
The UK Govt are inflating Covid19 death figures with deaths that would have sat in the respiratory deaths category in previous years. This will continue throughout the winter season and into spring. The UK Govt website does state their intentions with their Coronavirus messaging.
The perceived level of personal threat needs to be increased among those who are complacent, using hard-hitting emotional messaging.
