Official figures show that twenty-three diseases and conditions killed more people than COVID in England last month and the virus was responsible for fewer than 1 per cent of all deaths.
The Office for National Statistics discovered that COVID mortality continued to decline significantly during the month, even though cases were starting to climb because of the rapid spread of the Indian variant.
Coronavirus claimed 355 lives in May, which was down about 65 per cent on the toll in April, in another sign that the vaccines are giving tremendous protection even against the mutant strain.
The continued drop in COVID deaths suggests the virus is now the 24th leading cause of mortality, down from ninth last month, and it’s been the country’s greatest killer for four continuous months from November through to February.
In total there were 35,401 losses from all causes recorded in England last month, which was 10 per cent lower than normal and the second month in a row they have been below average.
COVID was the leading cause in just 0.9 per cent of the deaths, accounting for approximately one in 110.
Heart disease was the biggest killer in May (3,780) followed by dementia (3,711), while flu and pneumonia are now killing three times as many patients (1,012) as COVID.
The low COVID death numbers and other encouraging statistics have given the Government’s wary scientific advisers confidence that England’s new terminus date on July 19 will go ahead.
Imperial College London’s Neil Ferguson, named Professor Lockdown for his dark foresight which led to the initial lockdown last spring and prompted the most recent delay, said that he believes deaths would remain at controllable levels when the country unlocks next month.
Downing Street is said to be so impressed by the protection the vaccines are giving that lockdown could end two weeks early if COVID data proceeds to improve.
No 10 has opened the gateway to ending restrictions on July 5, amid mounting evidence that assumptions used by government scientists to justify delaying Freedom Day were too negative.
Other leading killers last month were lung disease, strokes and prostate cancer, and the ONS said it doesn’t publish a full table listing the causes of mortality because it says the information is only preparatory and subject to revision as more deaths are recorded.
Despite COVID deaths dropping in recent months, the virus has still been England’s biggest destroyer of 2021 so far, claiming 48,387 lives and accounting for a fifth of all deaths.
It seems as if the vaccination is working, but what does bedwetting bottler Boris Johnson do? Did he open up the country to preserve our economy, of course not? Because he wants to see more businesses and livelihoods go to the wall, and he’s becoming an international embarrassment.
So why hasn’t the country had all freedoms restored, probably because it’s all about power and totalitarianism.
They were raving on that heart disease was the most prominent thing in May, just a few months after the jab, and now what’s happened to the reports on the side effects of the jab? You guessed it, an enlarged heart, blood clots, and a spike in protein’s in the spleen and brain.
But is this all to do with the great reset that the people with tin foil hats, conspiracy theorists have all said about and which have all come true in the past, and this isn’t about protecting lives and our well-being, it’s about demoting us to a lower tier in the new green world, where vast numbers of people just don’t matter, and all men might have been born equal, but are no longer equal.
