According to leading statisticians, the number of coronavirus deaths is reached to 30/day as the COVID-19 outbreak proceeds steadily. The latest data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) reveal that there were nearly 400 daily deaths due to the novel coronavirus in all settings across Wales and England in early May. The Government has announced a further 545 deaths today across the United Kingdom, bringing its official death toll to 35,341.
Commenting on the ONS data, Carl Heneghan from the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine at Oxford University, predicted days with no coronavirus deaths by late next month. He said that he thinks by the month of June it will be difficult to track down people with the coronavirus disease if the present trends proceed to report more deaths. But we will continue to have these inconsistent ups and downs for up to six weeks.
Analyst Dr. Jason Oke from Oxford University said that taking a gander at patterns after some time, still, there is a consistent decrease in COVID-19 linked deaths and if you were tempted to extend that pattern into the future you would need to be wary.
The coronavirus deaths are now dropping at around 30 per day. Also, as per the last day on ONS reports shows it’s simply less than 400 passings all in all. It is easy to calculate and see how many more lives does this coronavirus pandemic takes.
Although the novel coronavirus pandemic has sparked a sharp rise in deaths across different age groups the death rate has dropped in young men. Experts claim the reason is that they are at extremely low risk from the deadly coronavirus. Many deaths involve dangerous behavior such as over speeding, but the coronavirus pandemic has curbed many hazardous habits.
Professor Sir David Spiegelhalter who is a risk expert at the University of Cambridge said that this is a statistically and practically significant decline in the death rate among young men whose ages ranging from 20 to 24. He added that the rise in deaths due to the risk-taking behavior of young men is expected. That has disappeared completely during the lockdown. Experts would have expected 106 deaths over this period but there were only 69 deaths, 35 percent reduction.
Overall, there have now been almost 45,000 fatalities due to COVID-19 across the United Kingdom. The ONS data reveals that there have been only 39,071 deaths involving the novel coronavirus in Wales and England up to May 8. Once data from Northern Ireland and Scotland are added, and the latest deaths included, the national tally is 44,639. It comes as ONS officials claim the number of care home residents killed by the highly contagious coronavirus in Wales and England has hit 15,000. The latest ONS report reveals that 10,000 have been killed by the deadly coronavirus in homes up to May 8.
