Standard biology has it that if one species grows in numbers to a level too much for the area they inhabit to cope with, nature seeks to rebalance things. For all the havoc Covid has caused, it seems to be one of those rebalancing means for our nigh on 8 billion population.
Agreed but the PC brigade, the brexiteers and the woke won't accept a single death and the government would prefer to lock us all up because they are so terrified of negative headlines. Removed

That's plainly false. No one is suggesting that we can't accept a low number of deaths. However, the number of deaths was high and the data shows would have been way higher without lockdowns. (Don't forget that hospital treatment would have become unavailable for most cases if the case count had continued to rise, so case fatality rate would have risen drastically as well as case count.)

Eh?

Remember that the UK sadly has the highest number of total deaths of any European nation

The 4th highest number of deaths per capita of any nation on earth

The worst performing economy of any major nation worldwide

Sad days indeed for the UK but Jon here thinks its best to try to gloat and points score

Also baffles me that nobody mentions that Germany (who the media praised non stop last year) has a MUCH higher death rate on any average year than the UK.

Germany avg deaths/yr over last 5 yrs - 930k
UK avg deaths/yr over last 5yrs - 605k

Their population is 24% larger than the UK's, but they have 54% more deaths every year.

Based on pop size Germany averages 180k more deaths than they should.

Wrong. Although the death rate is no longer currently at the highest rate of deaths. This country is still top of the pops when it comes to how many died over past year.
Boris has tried and failed and he really needs to resign so we can get a good working man in like Keir Starmer. If you disagree with me I hope you get dysentery.

Countries with the highest death rates
All led by far right wing leaders;
UK - Boris Johnson: 100k+ deaths
US - Donald Trump: 400k+ deaths
Brazil - Jair Bolsonaro: 210k+ deaths

Many are dying in Brazil because hospitals are running out of oxygen. Venezuela has been shipping in tankers of oxygen to Brazil
Funny that
Just imagine if we were still part of the EU and we were 'obliged' (i.e forced) to join their Procurement & Vaccination Programme?

Nicola & Sir Keir no longer appear to be 'demanding' that we join though

Success of flu jabs in the last decade left rich pickings for Covid. Other countries likely didn't record deaths as covid related when they probably should have. Strictly speaking unless someone was on their death-bed prior to catching covid then it was a major contributory factor in their premature death and should have been recorded as such.

Meanwhile, our wonderful democratic establishment has deemed that care and support workers should only be paid a couple of quid an hour for night work cause they don't deserve any more but our wonderful councillors, handing our Tory austerity deserve anything from £10,000 to £40,000 for doing, well the square root of nothing really.

Oh and you'll get 10 years for any protest in future.

Bozo the Clown told us to not make comparisons when we were the worst performing in Europe, now we're no longer the worst he keeps making comparisons.

And his fans suck it up.

I have a sneaky suspicion that being able to claim UK was 'world beating' over the count of people given Covid jabs was a contributory factor in deciding to implement the 12 week gap. I hope that wasn't the case but the way Ministers crow about the count, gloat over UK being better than EU (even though many EU states have fully vaccinated a greater % of their population), does give me pause.
Some people are still under the illusion that the vaccination program is somehow related to Brexit. The typical brexiteer probably never worked in his/her life , reads the Sun "newspaper" and is happy if anything upsets others. They have a very miserable life and are not concerned that Brexit has been a disaster for Britain. They want others to be as miserable as themselves. Removed

Looks like the UK is turning a corner thanks to the NHS vaccine rollout (quick applause and a pay cut in real terms) that the long term Covid economic impact will be smaller than the economic impact of Brexit according to the Office for Budget Responsibility.

The BBC has got its sports journalist commenting on Covid now, like there's a European Cup for Vaccinations or European Cup for New Cases.

Pathetic journalism, pathetic Con MPs for propagating this nonsense.

Just think what it would have been like if we were still in the EU.
Hardly any people vaccinated and a organisation which failed to order early enough.
Thankfully we left the EU and we order enough vaccine and deaths are falling and we are moving in the right direction.

What we did with licencing &ordering vaccines was done during transition when we were subject to EU rules. Just like keeping our own currency, and driving on a different side of the road, the EU never dictated how member countries deal with health issues. But Berxit fanatics are determined to bend every subject to support their distorted view of the world....

But wiped 40% off our exports to the EU in the process.
And by the end of the year, Europe will be largely free of Covid. But Brexit will still have trashed our economy.

A couple of interesting elements to this tragic figure. It is poorly expressed, but it is clear that we are not an outlier across Europe, which suggests that our highest Covid figures reflect more “honest” figures than elsewhere - it hit everyone hard. Not that the (B?)BC would spell that out. Second, our death rate was actually lower than in the last years of Labour...

Government was dishonest about the lack of PPE in the early days of the pandemic. Discharging known Covid sufferers from hospitals to care homes. The avoidable deaths in care homes is a national scandal. NHS hospital staff unable to access PPE and those who provided their own were reprimanded. Why? Because staff without PPE would be upset! Appallingly poor management. Incompetent politicians.

PPE? Yes - to protect what little we had after the Frogs requisitioned our supply. Discharge? Standard procedure in the event of a pandemic. Lack of testing beforehand? Look to PHE not the Govt. And I'm no Tory voter but some perspective is required. Removed
