Nearly one year ago, on July 19th 2021, the UK announced its “Freedom Day” from Covid-19.  The deadly cost of that fateful decision is now becoming apparent…

On the 21st April 2021, the UK death rate was just 20 victims. One year later, on the 21st April 2022, the figure has risen to 647 deaths – 32 times greater than the same day in 2021.

In the past 8 days alone, from the 13th April 2022 to 21st April 2022, there have been 2,646 deaths, despite a four-day holiday during that period when no Covid figures were recorded.

The UK death rate has now been rising for more than one year, and is far above the levels that triggered the first national lockdown in March 2020 and the second national lockdown in November 2020.



The past week has seen the Covid-19 daily death rate soaring to levels not seen for over a year:


The figures for Covid-19 deaths for the week from April 13th 2022 are:

13th April 2022: 658 deaths
14th April 2022: 350 deaths
19th April 2022: 483 deaths
20th April 2022: 508 deaths
21st April 2022: 647 deaths

Total: 2646 deaths in one week


The UK is now responsible for more than 15% of all Covid-19 deaths on Earth, despite having less than 1% of the world’s population:


After more than two years of complete ineptitude in its handling of the pandemic, Britain is still failing to find solutions to keep its population safe.
