Rise In UK Non-COVID Deaths Set To Continue: Cancer Expert

One of the world’s foremost cancer experts has said that British lockdown policies are still having an impact on excess mortality, describing it as a “national scandal.”

The Telegraph reported that 9,300 more people than usual died in the past four months from non-CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus causes.

The latest figures from the Office for National Statistics show that England and Wales registered 20,823 more deaths than the five-year average in the past 18 weeks. Only 11,531 deaths involved the CCP virus.

The increase prompted experts such as Professor Carl Heneghan, director of the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine at the University of Oxford, to call for an urgent investigation.

“We urgently need to understand what’s going wrong and an investigation of the root causes to determine those actions that can prevent further unnecessary deaths,” he told the publication.

The excess is likely to grow as more deaths are registered in the coming weeks.
