Still taking in how badly the pandemic has been in the UK. it is worse per head than the USA. They do not want us to make international comparisons but the numbers are pretty stark. Some countries handled the pandemic so much better than others. Feel free to check my mathematics and I will amend if required! I have taught population geography in the past and for many years and these sorts of international comparisons regarding death rates are very common. Obviously underlying factors need exploring but the USA and the UK have performed extraordinarily badly as the WHO table indicates.
Country Population Number of deaths Deaths per 100,000
USA 330,060,054 431,570 130.75
UK 66.796,907 100,062 149.80
NZ 5,101,400 84 1.65
Need a public enquiry, or better, sooner rather than later although it will probably report the blindingly obvious. The UK Government did not do all it could.
AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE I WILL STAY AT HOME, KEEP THE 2m RULE AND WEAR A FACE MASK
Staying at home! – STILL Protecting the NHS – STILL saving lives
I AM STILL Keeping safe
