Mistakes made

Oh yes mistakes were made, we have the highest death rate in Europe

While it's not a competition Lt Kije, Belgium is miles ahead of the UK, and Spain is also still ahead. And of course there's always a question of how each country is counting the deaths, some aren't including deaths outside a hospital for example. Whatever, there's going to be a heap of finger-pointing and slopey shoulders in the coming months/years. And you can be sure that "lessons have been learned", but not many jobs lost amongst the great and good.

Apparently, ethnicity is producing anomalies to the count whether through social deprivation or higher susceptability to catching the virus. If it is the latter ,perhaps countries with higher BAME groups (getting with the jargon there) are showing higher numbers of covid related deaths.

That isn't really borne out by statistics from the native countries of BAME groups though Davy.  Whether that is due to poor reporting is still to be seen, and in a lot of countries the funeral takes place with what would be seen as unseemly haste in this country, not much attention being paid to the cause of death.

One theory Dave, is that people with dark skins are unable to absorb vitamin D, essential to the immune system,  from our poorer sunlight. If true, this would suggest that there are an awful lot of people living at the wrong latitude. 😷
