Tuesday figures seem to be a combination of the weekend and Monday, a big spike from yesterday as it was last week.

The figures are apparently based on when the deaths were recorded (gone through the coroner I think) rather than happened. So the figures we see are of people who died days ago, perhaps even a week. It's why the weekend numbers are always lower

Whoah. That's the largest one yet right? Still a good few days off the expected peak as well.

I don't think we'll ever know the true number of people who died as a result of this.

Yeah, they are the only ones recorded as by the virus I think.

Friend of my eldests grandad died the other day at 88, terminal diagnosis of lung cancer couple of years ago and was in hospital for his last days but goes down as a C-19 death as he contracted it in there.
