In England, No One Can Ever Recover From COVID-19

"Everyone who has ever had COVID at any time must die with COVID too. So, the COVID death toll in Britain up to July 2020 will eventually exceed 290,000"

“A patient who has tested positive, but successfully treated and discharged from hospital, will still be counted as a COVID death, even if they had a heart attack or were run over by a bus three months later”

People living in England have become increasingly concerned in recent weeks, as Public Health England’s (PHE) figures demonstrate a relentless daily toll of more than a hundred COVID-associated deaths, several days a week.

This is in stark contrast to the more reassuring recovery in neighboring regions (Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland), where there are days with no COVID-associated deaths whatsoever.

One reason for this is due to a statistical flaw in the way that PHE compiles ‘out of hospital’ deaths data, rather than any genuine difference between the regions of the UK:

‘Linking data on confirmed positive cases (identified through testing by NHS and PHE laboratories and commercial partners) to the NHS Demographic Batch Service: when a patient dies, the NHS central register of patients is notified (this is not limited to deaths in hospitals). The list of all lab-confirmed cases is checked against the NHS central register each day, to check if any of the patients have died.’

It seems that PHE regularly looks for people on the NHS database who have ever tested positive for COVID, and simply checks to see if they are still alive or not.

PHE does not appear to consider how long ago the COVID test result was, nor whether the person has been successfully treated in hospital and discharged to the community. Anyone who has tested COVID-positive but subsequently died at a later date of any cause will be included on the PHE COVID death figures.

By this PHE definition, no one with COVID in England is allowed to ever recover from their illness. A patient who has tested positive, but successfully treated and discharged from hospital, will still be counted as a COVID death, even if they had a heart attack or were run over by a bus three months later.

This is why the PHE figures vary substantially from day to day. For example, 16 new deaths were announced on July 6, but the following day, 152 were reported – today’s figure is 66.

PHE data also confirms that more than 125,000 patients have been admitted to NHS hospitals for COVID, the majority being successfully treated and discharged. There are now fewer than 1,900 COVID patients in hospital. So, roughly 80,000 recovered patients in the community will continue being monitored by PHE for the daily death statistics. More and more people (who are mainly in the older age group) are being discharged to the community, but they clearly may die of other illnesses.

This is why ‘out of hospital setting’ deaths remain constantly high, even though the Office for National Statistics data shows there have been fewer deaths than the five year average in the last three weeks, and NHS England data shows a moving average of 19 deaths per day in hospital.

It’s time to fix this statistical flaw that leads to an over-exaggeration of COVID-associated deaths. One reasonable approach would be to define community COVID-related deaths as those that occurred within 21 days of a COVID positive test result.

In summary, PHE’s definition of the daily death figures means that everyone who has ever had COVID at any time must die with COVID too. So, the COVID death toll in Britain up to July 2020 will eventually exceed 290,000, if the follow-up of every test-positive patient is of long enough duration.

    Now throw in faulty testing too, because the RT PCR test is 80% faulty thus throwing off false positives left right and centre. now you have a perfect recipe to fiddle the data to get your totalitarian state roll out.

    Dumb Brit docs mumbling about herd immunity.. when new studies sho wthat the CV anti-bodies will be GONE in 2-6 weeks.

    Obviously, there are fewer death because the virus is moderating like most do. The only good thing about this flu is showing/awakening people everywhere how stupid, incompetent, and careless all Western governments are in a crisis. They blithely cause economic suicide for everyone with needless lockdowns and masking nonsense.

      We’ve got fewer deaths mainly because the Chicom-Demonrat governors got caught with their d*cks out, putting Corona patients in nursing homes, killing off old people, probably trying to save medicare/medicaid. Bastards! Glad there’s a Judgement Day coming so they can burn in Hell.

    An article reported that about government supported masks in the UK. In an article titled “Face Masks Mandated By UK Government Specifically Say They Don’t Protect Against COVID-19″ which deals with face masks in the UK and as such is applicable to face masks worn in the US. It states the following:

    However, the law states that cloth masks, scarves or other textile items that don’t require the use of hands to hold them in place are acceptable forms of protection against COVID-19. One problem with that, the packaging on these kind of cloth masks specifically states that they don’t protect against COVID-19.

    “This product is an ear loop mask. This product is not a respirator and will not provide any protection against COVID-19 (coronavirus) or any other viruses or contaminants,” states the packaging on a standard set of cloth masks currently being sold.

    If the maker states this then it is clear the masks don’t work.Then what use are they?

    It should clearly state what a mask can or cannot do, because if the manufacturer claims that its mask is 100% efficient in filtering covid and a legal firm proves otherwise then that manufacturer can be sued for selling a product that endangers one’s health with false information

    All products have to meet specific standards . That is the law. If a Mask is sold or given as a method to control the spread of covid then the manufacturer has to state that clearly on the package. If it disclaims that the mask does not shield for covid or any virus or bacteria then one should refuse to wear it.

    I trust absolutely nothing I hear about this flu bug from government sources. There have already been far too many lies about it for me to trust much of anything I hear from government in the future about anything. They’ve blown their wad. Once a liar, always a liar.

    Can we trust Covid 19 death numbers…
    Sweet gov would never lie.

    In the US ‘lockdown fever’ is actually growing worse. Yesterday, Target, Wal-Mart, Walgreens, and CVS announced you must wear a mask in their stores. These are major chains. Apparently CEO’s of large companies can also make arbitrary laws. And there are so many fearful people in their face diapers now, that simply disobeying now carries a risk of verbal (in not worse) attack. Personally experienced.
