False.

Actual number of deaths YTD 27 Nov:

2020: 554.919
Avg. 2015-2019: 490.182

https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulat...nglandandwales

But good to read in this "article" you quote that "there is NO 'pandemic' at all"

Only if nobody dies in December.

There's a good chance 2021 and 2022 will look very good for mortality figures though.

Years have 52 weeks, not 47. The right thing to do would be to wait until March 2021 to compare apples to apples (March 2019-March 2020 Vs March 2020-March 2021).

But we have no patience for that. So, lets compare apples to extrapolated apples 511,883/ (47/52) = 566,283 deaths in 2020 assuming the rate is equal to 2019. Around 10% higher than 2019. We can discuss if the 10% is a lot or not, but higher than 2019 is out of discussion: it's higher.

Please tell us you shared this as a joke. It's good to laugh at stupid things sometimes

Re: Coronavirus

So, in the northern part of Switzerland, we have Basel-Stadt, which closed restaurants and bars a while back, Basel-Land, Solothurn, Zurich and Thurgau are all putting in measures.

Aargau has, however, declared "there is no emergency". Maybe they are planning on inviting the Donald to run the show after he's finished up in the US.

The numbers are so constant that one could almost be forgiven for thinking that they are made up

I find it totally unfair that Romandie cantons were very proactive at the beginning of the second wave, closing restaurants and cultural places, successfully reducing contamination; and now that we are ready to open again, we have to pay the price for the Swiss Germans who couldn’t make such decisions without being forced by the Confederation.
kantonal restrictions are pretty much useless without restriction of movement.

Cross-border shoppers are grabbing their pitchforks after reading "restrictions of movement". Everything is better in France and Germany /s

Re: Coronavirus

Is the positive percentage rate dropping a sign of more comprehensive testing or any improvement? The numbers seem pretty static but at least we've got beneath the 20+% positive rate.

Well, considering 5 percent is when the WHO defines the situation as starting to get out of control, we can't really look at just below 20% as positive.

Re: Coronavirus

This is confusing. I don't understand the 7pm logic at all, not for shops and particularly not for restaurants. Also they seem to have not much of a plan for Dec 18.

Chess ...

It's almost like you don't read what you post. Or you just repost random crud you find on the internet without verifying it first.

For some reason, a comparison to Trump and his bold-faced lies springs to mind.

That's a bit like posting that more and more people die of malaria each year (simply because the population is increasing).*


*not fact checked - it was a example.
