  1. Almost every Monday the government can report 0 deaths. Given that most registrars offices are closed over the weekend, the (not in the headlines published) number of 28 deaths over the weekend (which are only published in the excel files) suggest that either some registrars are working or that these are catch-up numbers not published previously.
    Are those the ‘forgotten’ deaths, the ones most media, who simply and hastily refer to the government’s headlines, just overlook?

    The government’s publishing of relevant data should follow a more sensible, correct and accurate approach. Since our government does in fact collect all the data, it would be a 2 minute job to enter the ‘over the weekend’ figures into the headlines. They still do it manually… which is odd anyway… have they never heard of data interfaces?

    • “the ‘forgotten’ deaths” – what a chilling thought that is.

      I’m afraid there are far too many of them – the numbers that have died since March 2020 appear to be being forgotten.

      And……the fact that the Prime Minister of Britain ( a misnomer if ever there was one) and his cronies were having parties while the general public were not allowed to attend funerals for their dead. That appears to be being conveniently forgotten – or over-ridden by other ‘news’ – too.

      He’s still there, in power, meeting with others in power.
