Coronavirus: For every three COVID-19 deaths, lockdown may have caused another two…
The national lockdown may have indirectly caused 16,000 excess deaths in two months, according to government analysts.
The estimates, made by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and analysts from several government departments, suggest there were 38,500 excess deaths in England connected to COVID-19 between March and 1 May.
However, the report concludes 41% of those deaths were the result of missed medical care rather than the virus itself.
The report says the other 10,000 excess deaths likely occurred in care home settings due to patients having been discharged from hospitals, or not wanting to be transferred to hospital.
there could be a further 26,000 excess deaths by March 2021 as a result of ongoing restrictions to medical care.
