COVID-19 Deaths With No Underlying Conditions

COVID-19 Deaths With No Underlying Conditions

The following video caught my attention, which makes reference to an ONS FOI request of the number of deaths in England/Wales that were a direct result of COVID-19 in which the people had no underlying health conditions:

OF Vs. WITH: What the MSM Aren’t Reporting, YouTube, 18th of January 2022.

Although no reference is provided to the ONS data, I suspect it refers to the following FOI:

Deaths from COVID-19 with no other underlying causes, ONS, 16th of December 2021.

which in turn refers to the original dataset:

Pre-existing conditions of people who died due to COVID-19, England and Wales, ONS.

The data given is:

"

Death registrations for 2020 and 2021 (provisional) that were due to COVID-19 and were recorded without any pre-existing conditions, England and Wales.

2020: 9400 (0-64: 1549 / 65 and over: 7851)

2021 Q1: 6483 (0-64: 1560/ 65 and over: 4923)

2021 Q2: 346 (0-64: 153/ 65 and over: 193)

2021 Q3: 1142 (0-64: 512/ 65 and over: 630)

"

showing that in the whole of 2020 a total 9,400 people died as a direct result of COVID-19, with (7,851/9,400)x100=84% of them being over 65.

Whipping Up Hysteria

UKGov and the mainstream media often cite the official data that has now passed 150,000 COVID-19 deaths. These are anyone who tested positive for COVID-19 within 28 days of their death, whether they died from COVID-19 or where hit by a bus or shot dead. Summing up the above COVID-19 deaths we have 17,371. As of the 19th of January 2022 the officially cited figure of COVID-19 deaths was 152,513. As a percentage we see that (17,371/152,513)x100=11% or ~10% of the often cited figure were actually as a direct result of COVID-19. Both myself and many others have been saying this from the start that the true figure is around 10% of the officially quoted figure.

Flu Deaths - A Comparison

Let's compare the actual COVID-19 deaths to typical annual flu deaths. From another ONS FOI we have:

Deaths from influenza and pneumonia 2015-2020, ONS, 30th of November 2020.

which contains the Table shown below:

Flu deaths in England/Wales 2015-2019.

In 2018 there were a total of 29,451 flu related deaths. Compare that to the 9,400 COVID-19 deaths in 2020, which as a percentage is (9,400/29,451)x100=32%. In other words, in 2018 flu killed 3.2 times as many people. Do you remember a lockdown, face nappies, social-distancing, mass vaccination, vaccine mandates, closing of schools, people ordered to work from home, ... in 2018? I don't.

As the above data shows, COVID-19 was and is about something else entirely.

A Similar Story Throughout the World

It will be a similar story throughout the world in that the true number of people dying as a direct result of COVID-19 will be around 10% of the "officially" cited figure. As of the 19th of January the number of deaths due to COVID-19 on WorldoMeter was 5,574,726. That is in nearly 2 years since COVID-19 first hit the streets. Let's half it and say ~2.8 million/year. And with our 10% metric we have ~280,000 COVID-19 deaths in 2020 across the world. The WHO estimates there to be between 290,000-650,000 flu related deaths each year. At the lower bound it is roughly the same number as COVID-19 and at the upperbound 2.3 times the number of COVID-19 deaths. So, once again across the entire world, COVID-19 was no worse than annual flu.
