The number of deaths in England&Wales are nearly down to their 5yr average……
The numbers still show that the Old Fogies are most at risk.
Those over 70yrs old, form 80% of all deaths, but 84% of the Covid-19 deaths, and 88% of the deaths for the latest week of Covid-19 numbers.
No suggestions as to the fortnightly uptick. Could be a data gathering feature? If so, the numbers should go up slightly next week.
Feel free to go to the ONS numbers directly.
