I am not going to reproduce all their findings buthere are a few points which I find interesting-
- Between 1 and 31 March 2020, there were 47,358 deaths that occurred in England and Wales and were registered by 6 April 2020. Of these, 8% involved the coronavirus (COVID-19) (3,912 deaths).
- Of the deaths involving COVID-19 that occurred in March 2020, there was at least one pre-existing condition in 91% of cases.
- Males had a significantly higher rate of death due to COVID-19; the rate was double that of females.
- The delay in reporting deaths is the same for Covid-19 as it is for all other causes
