The number of people dying from the Coronavirus in England and Wales has dropped so significantly, that three times as many people are dying from the flu and pneumonia in England and Wales than from Covid.
The Daily Mail reports:
Nearly three times as many people are now dying from the flu and pneumonia than coronavirus in England and Wales, official statistics revealed today.
Covid-19 fatalities have dropped to the lowest levels since well before lockdown, with 283 people succumbing to the life-threatening infection in the week ending July 10.
By contrast, 418 coronavirus deaths were recorded in England and Wales in the seven-day spell before and more than 8,000 were registered during the peak of the crisis in April.
The study also noted that 25% of the COVID deaths involved people over the age of 90.
