Dear Scottish Government,

In the last 52 weeks:
1 in every 87 of Scotland's population died,
but only
1 in 89 of Wales
1 in 102 of England
1 in 113 of N Ireland

Is there a 'Scottish Gov' version' of the above statistics that might make them look less horrific?

What actions are intended to be put in place to address this issue?

What is the main reasons for such a far higher death rate in Scotland?

Yours faithfully,

Manfred Stobartson

Scottish Government
