Apologies first. I know that talking about deaths in statistics is upsetting to some, but I don’t know another way of doing it.
The headline number of deaths reported on the daily update on the website that the OP links to is currently 2,062. But to understand what this means you have to follow the link to the Deaths page, from the left hand side of the page.
2,062 is the number of deaths within 28 days of a positive test, reported in the last 7 days. This is not linked to the date of death and can be misleading because there are deaths in there from more than 7 days ago.
The number of deaths within 28 days of a positive test based on the date of death over the last 7 days is 958. If you come back in a week and look at the number of deaths that actually happened between 20th April and 27th April, it will be more than 958 because deaths are reported after the event. Obviously. This is still number of deaths within 28 days of a positive test.
Neither of these refers to the number of deaths with Covid on the Death certificate. The latest weekly figure for that measure is 1,150, measured on the 15th April. Because this data takes time to come in.
While COVID was so deadly, the best measure we had was the “within 28 days” one. But now people can test positive for Covid on day 1, but still die of something else completely within 28 days. So the Death certificate metric is now the most reliable measure.
This with/of thing was used originally by deniers, but it is more applicable now that there are high numbers of cases, but the mortality rate is lower. And why thinking that there were 2,300 deaths from COVID in the last week is just not correct.
Apologies again if I’m teaching my granny to suck eggs.
