Following a FOI request, the Office for National Statistics released the following figures:
2020: 9400 (0-64: 1549 / 65 and over: 7851)
2021 Q1: 6483 (0-64: 1560/ 65 and over: 4923)
2021 Q2: 346 (0-64: 153/ 65 and over: 193)
2021 Q3: 1142 (0-64: 512/ 65 and over: 630)
In total, 17, 371. The usual quoted statistic of deaths within 28 days of a positive test over the same period is 137,133. As Dr. John Campbell notes in the accompanying video,
the average age of those that died solely from COVID is 82.5 years of age. This is slightly above the average of death. A little over 78% of those that died solely from COVID were over 65 and given the average age at least half of them 82.5 years or over.
I saw this reported on GB News by Farage yesterday,
but I can’t for the life of me recall a single news outlet here in Australia report this story and the FOI request was released on 16 Dec 2021. According to Dr. John Campbell, no major news outlet in the UK has reported this story either (beyond GB News). Not Sky, BBC, ITV, etc.
This is a terrible state of affairs. We have incompetent, malevolent, and self-interested political actors everywhere and a media unwilling or incapable to hold them to account.
