Covid-19 Deaths Yesterday the Tory government announced tragically there have been a total of 38,489 deaths in the UK due to Covid-19. Today they said there were an additional 111 recorded deaths and the new total is 39,045 which is in fact a daily increase of 556. It would appear that Boris Johnson and the government have been revising the figures so they don't appear as bad. There were 445 extra deaths in England that they previously didn't attribute to Covid-19 and they slipped these deaths into the final figures for the May after they announced the daily increase hoping no one would notice. Their manipulation of the data is shameful and shows they can't be trusted.
