Some good news coming through, actually lower than the 5 year average. Long may it continue.

Good news indeed. I do actually think we’ll see a slowing of deaths even though we open up. I think a lot of people who would have died of Covid (ie. the elderly) have very sadly done so & now we have a lot more PPE & safety measures in care homes etc. I think cases will shoot up but it’ll be younger people catching it in pubs, restaurants, shops etc & they are unlikely to die of it. Certainly not in the huge numbers we’ve seen.. I hope not anyway ..

I think we could actually end up with a lower than average death rate over the whole year if we keep up with some of the changes we've had to make because of coronavirus - things like washing our hands, wearing masks, social distancing to some degree, as well as some people being motivated to lose weight and exercise more and eat healthier food.
