The Office for National Statistics (ONS) this week reported on September 7 that the UK passed the grim total of more than 160,000 deaths because of Covid-19.
As per the data published by Public Health England (PHE), the deaths were 1.4 times higher than expected between March 21, 2020, and July 2, 2021. The increase in deaths is largely driven by the Covid-19 pandemic and has resulted in a staggering overall decrease in life expectancy of 1.3 years for males, to 78.7, and 0.9 years for females, to 82.7 years.
Evidence indicates the growth in life expectancy began slowing in 2010-11 and is now the lowest in ten years. Analysts strongly suggested a link between decreased life expectancy and the “age of austerity” in 2008, including savage cuts to the National Health Service (NHS) and local government services.
PHE began recording data on deprivation-linked life expectancy over 20 years ago and it was found that inequality in life expectancy between the richest and poorest residential areas of England.
Data released by ONS in May show that the wealthiest parts of the country have recorded five times lower Covid death rates. The loss of life in the latest research is the monumental crimes carried out by the ruling elite who have put the health of the economy before public health and lives.
In March, it was found by the Health Foundation that 1.5 million years of life were lost in the UK in the first year of the pandemic. Each person killed by Covid-19 lost 10.2 years of life on average.
The Health Foundation charity reckoned that 146,000 deaths had been lost due to Covid-19 in Britain. Thousands of more deaths have been tragically lost since then and the ruling elite’s “let it rip” policy is continuing taking the lives of hundreds each week.
