Default UK now has the worst death rate in the WORLD from CoVid19

Quote:
The UK now has the highest death rate from Covid-19 of any country in the world, the latest data has revealed.

An average of 935 daily deaths in the UK over the last week was the equivalent of more than 16 people in every million dying each day from coronavirus.

Figures compiled by University of Oxford-based research platform Our World in Data show that no other country matches the UKís per capita rate of deaths.

The UK overtook the Czech Republic, which had held the top spot since 11 January, after the government published the latest coronavirus deaths on Sunday night.

The weekendís figures tend to be lower due to a lag in reporting, meaning the number of new daily deaths in the UK will likely rise once again when new figures are announced on Monday.


Thereís honestly no words :/

Smithys one is per capita, your one is just total deaths I think?

I think the OP is slightly misleading; this figure doesn't represent the full length of the pandemic, it is the number of deaths per million population in the last 7 days only... thus, places that are currently in a "dip" in the infection cycle will be low on the list, those currently "peaking" will be high, and the list order will change constantly over time.

As different countries are in different phases at different times... to be honest it's a bit of a meaningless stat. You can only really compare two countries if you compare the numbers for both at peak, which will not be in the same snapshot of time.

...oh ok, really wow...weíre an island and in theory we could have been COVID free because of that, if the government had acted in the beginning to close down travel...to make some errors is excusable ...but to have the worst death rate...?...is just an horrendous reflection of their action and inaction...

What the stat tells us:

Over the last 7 days the UK has had the highest death rate of any country per capita.


What it doesn't tell us:

Anything else at all.

it's been reported all over the world that we have a new variant here that has spiked the infection rate and forced us in to lockdown. With a spiking infection rate, the death rate goes up, thats a fact, and as we are approaching or at the peak infection rate now ... we are going to be the highest death rate at this point in time. It's the same old story that has been present since the beginning of the pandemic. Manipulated statistics to push a narrative

Absolutely embarrassing, same for us here in Portugal, we were doing amazingly well, slowing the curve and then the breaks between restrictions just made things go mad again.

Our way of counting is bloody ridiculous tbh. I thought it was crappy when it was 28 days after a positive covid test, regardless of actual death. And I recently found out that they switched this to anyone who has a positive test in the previous 60 days! Which will bloody obviously make the numbers shoot up?! Like, if you did this with other illnesses, you could make the likes of norovirus seem deadly (not saying covid is not an issue or anything though, obviously I know its very serious for some people), if we were recording deaths of any kind, 2 months after the infection.

Surely there are better way to do it..just seems so weird and has never really made sense to me at 28 days, let alone 60

Is it right that some countries don't add in carehomes and such?

Regardless though, every time there is a decision to be made, it appears to be the wrong one (the xmas thing was ridiculous, days after saying Starmer was 'trying to steal xmas' ). I am not surprised our deaths are quite high.

Ontop of this, the whole eat out to help out thing..was stupid. I took advantage of it mind don't get me wrong, but to encourage mixing like that, only to whinge that people who did what they were told/paid to do were spreading the virus..which was entirely unpredictable and shocked people to their very core.

Well we halved the daily deaths today, so boris must have done double good if the deaths are his fault.

OMG i didnt realised that is how it works!
I was always confused about the 28 day thing.
Of course we have the highest in the world then!
China only recorded a death if it happen on a full moon it would seem.
