Yearly number of deaths registered in England and Wales.
In 2017 there were: 533,253 deaths
In 2018 there were: 541,589 deaths
In 2019 there were: 530,841 deaths
In 2020 there were: ? deaths.
The official figures for 2020 are, at least in my brief research, difficult to come by. Of course there is a day or two still left in 2020 but one would have thought the latest figures would be readily available considering the public interest. My guess is the mortality rate in England & Wales for 2020 will be higher than previous years but not substantially so and hardly what one might expect for a so-called “pandemic”.
Nevertheless it would be good to know the truth of the matter.
