Talking to Arlene Foster, this morning, Marr says the deaths rates are:

  • In N Ireland: 26 per 100 000
  • 46 per 100 000 in England and Wales
  • 51 in Scotland

The source is not declared. Given the devolved covid-19 strategies, it’s not clear why the England & Wales figures are grouped. Anyhow the actual figures are:

From worldometers in https://www.travellingtabby.com/scotland-coronavirus-tracker/

So per 100 000

  • Scotland 43.3
  • England 61.1
  • Wales 42.4
  • N Ireland 27.8

And, of course, even these figures are unreliable compared with the excess mortality scores or Z-scores:

Z-scores:
England: peak 43.5 in week 15, now 31.52 in week 18
Scotland: peak at 15.65 in week 15, now 5.82 in week 18
NI peak 8.8 in week 15, now -1.1 in week 18
Wales peak 19.76 in week 15, now 2.44 in week 18
