A reminder that there are STILL far more people dying in their homes at the moment than is usually the case. The black line on this chart may not leap out vs the green line (care homes) but over this pandemic there have now been more excess deaths at home than in care homes.
@MKTWgoldstein Most prob. See my latest tweet. Then again excess deaths at home exceed the negative excess deaths in hospitals by over a thousand over the past 10 weeks.
BREAKING: Boris Johnson just boasted of ‘succeeding’ in the first wave of coronavirus & ‘saving 1000s of lives’. This is a disgusting lie. He failed so badly we had the worst casualty toll in Europe with 65,000 excess deaths. He’s so unutterably, sickeningly shameless.
NEW: a lot of data on reported Covid deaths is highly suspect, so we’ve been looking into excess mortality — how many more people than usual have been dying around the world in recent weeks? Story by me, @ChrisGiles_ & @valentinaromei (free to read):
Centers for Disease Control Robert Redfield:”We’re seeing, sadly, far greater suicides now than we are deaths from Covid. We’re seeing far greater deaths from drug overdose, that are above excess, than we had as background, than we are seeing deaths from Covid.” Why no coverage?
"We have excess corn in various parts of our country with our farmers because China did not do what they said they were going to do. And Prime Minister@AbeShinzo , on behalf of Japan, they're going to be buying all of that corn." — President@realDonaldTrump
