Covid-19 deaths overstated by nearly 25%

Covid-19 deaths could be overstated by as much as 23 percent. Nearly a quarter of people are dying with the virus, but not from it—and yet are being recorded as Covid victims.

Instead, they are dying from a range of other health problems, such as cancer and heart disease, figures from the UK’s Office for National Statistics (ONS) have revealed.

If the reporting practise started from the outset of the Covid epidemic, it could mean that the UK’s Covid mortality rate has been overstated by around 29,000 deaths. The practise, as reported by the mainstream media, defines all Covid deaths as “deaths that have occurred within 28 days of a positive Covid test”.

Even cases being treated in hospital may be half the official figures, say researchers from Oxford University.
