I must be a bit dim not knowing the precise figures being reported.
Shame on the BBC for the sensationalist headline "Worst excess deaths in the UK since WW2" . Only hidden at the bottom is the balancing comment "It is likely to return death rates in the UK to levels last seen in the mid-2000s." Removed

Todays crisis story from BBC News.

Shops are closed but BBC can reveal that unbelievably sales are down. Clearly this is down to Brexit or the Tory Govt or more likely both but certainly has nothing to do with the fact that shops are closed.

No, we’re just used to using language correctly and not displaying our ignorance.
On here, maybe better to not post, than confirm ignorance by posting uninformed, ill educated clap-trap.

I'd be embarrassed to show such ignorance, but they do say Ignorance is bliss, so no wonder you're so happy.

You should read 'This Is Going to Hurt' by Adam Kay.

It's hilarious, sad & downright scary, but a real eye-opener of how hard people have to work in the NHS, even before Covid started.

This isn't news that would surprise anybody
