The above graph shows the Office for National Statistics Age-standardised mortality rate (per 100,000 population) 1990 to 2020

The trend line is a two-year average.

Comments:

1. Note that 2020 mortality/100,000 (1,043) has been exceeded every year from 1990 to 2008. ie. 2020 had lower mortality than 19 years previous.

2. That the actual for 2020 is approx 5% higher (50) than an expected trend figure (990).

3. That it is generally agreed some of this increased mortality was due to patients not able to attend hospitals or fearful of attending.

4. Because 2019 was a “good year” with lower than expected deaths when we subtract this reduction (50) from 2020 actual it gives a figure of 990,

ie. lower mortality than the previous twenty-five years!

The above facts question the validity of all the damaging restrictions that have been imposed since the Covid-19 outbreak.

Have we actually been experiencing a Panic-demic worldwide driven by fear and expert statistician’s algorithms?
