Real Covid death toll

Research by the South African Medical Research Council, together with UCT’s actuarial unit, shows that there have been a lot more deaths in South Africa than normal this year and far exceeding the Covid death toll that we all hear about daily.  The official figures are that 75,000 people have now died from Covid, but the research points out that there have been 222,500 “excess deaths” since 3 May 2020 mot included in the Covid figures.  Now, it is not guaranteed that all of those deaths are because of Covid, but there have been a lot more deaths in the last year than normal and it is a reasonable assumption that it is precisely Covid that is largely behind that dramatic increase in deaths. 

I have written more than a few times about the fact that it is likely to be the case that we will only know accurate numbers years later.  This just shows you how incorrect the official Covid death pstatistics are now and how serious the impact from Covid actually is.
