Dear Office for National Statistics,

Please could you tell me whether those England and Wales citizens who have been deemed to have died linked to Coronavirus, currently amounting to some 130,000, are also recorded as having died due to another cause, possibly the principal cause, of death such as road traffic accident or heart attack.

Yours faithfully,

peter k. roberts.

Many thanks for all the information I requested.

It appears to me that all things considered, 150,000 mortalities within a population of 66 million, over a period of more than 2 years, due to LINKS TO one specific cause ie Coronavirus, amounting to less than one in 400 of the actual population, does not constitute a pandemic in most people's eyes.
