They are being researched, but it's not that easy. The ONS didn't link characteristics such as age, occupation, gender, ethnicity, etc, so it would need somebody to go through every death and record details for each individual. The statistics show a significant increase in deaths from circulatory diseases and diabetes, but the patients' Covid history wasn't necessarily recorded. Graphs show a correlation between Covid surges and deaths from non-Covid causes, but the exact cause isn't proven. It's known that Covid caused long-term damage to a many different organs, including the heart and pancreas, but it's expensive and time-consuming to go through individual patients' records, but it is happening. It's irresponsible of journalists to claim that lockdown caused the deaths because the evidence doesn't support that.
