Why is the FM the image of death when the PM never is even though he is responsible for the whole catastrophe?
The UK average mortality rate has climbed to 8% less than 1% point behind Spain, after today’s surge of 563. In Scotland, the 16 new deaths leave the mortality rate as it has been for 7 days at around 3%.
The 518 deaths today in England reveal a shocking rate per head of population more than three times higher than in Scotland. England has around ten times the population so, all things being equal, would only have 160 deaths, but it has more than 500. Something very different is happening here and NHS Scotland supported by the Scottish Government are playing a part in it but it’s a part that BBC Scotland can never mention.
