Another FOIA Request Shows Only 6,183 UK Deaths Can Be Attributed To COVID Alone

  • Reflect On:

    Why are journalists not discussing what this could mean? The majority of people who have died with COVID have had multiple other causes listed on their death certificates. Why haven't we taken a more focused protection plan to protect the vulnerable?

We recently published an article about a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request released  at the end of 2021 in the United Kingdom. The official government documents said that 17,371 was the total number of people who died of COVID without any pre-existing conditions in England and Wales from the beginning of 2020 up until the end of Sept 2021.

Now, we’ve come across another request that was released on Jan 17, 2022 showing that there have only been 6,183 deaths caused solely by COVID in England and Wales between Feb 2020 and Dec 2021.

We are trying to figure out why these two sets of data are so drastically different. The location is the same and the small number actually has a longer timeline. The only explanation is that the 17,371 number was not up to date data. That request does say it’s “preliminary data” whereas the request showing 6,183 does not say that. This hints to the idea that the FOIA release from Jan 17, 2022 is a more accurate representation.
