In the last 7 days, prior to 15 December, there were 15 deaths in Scotland, within 28 days of a positive test (30 fewer than in the previous week) and a cumulative total thus of 12 389.
In England with 10 times the population, there were 402 deaths (only 18 fewer than previous week), 2.7 times as many pro rata and cumulative total of 173 821, 40% higher than the Scottish figure, pro rata.
Why are there still, and have there been so many fewer deaths in Scotland? Better hospitals, more nurses and doctors, more beds, better government….?
One thought on “Why are Covid deaths far fewer and not surging in Scotland?”
Testing england 326000,Scotland 8000.
May affect the 28 day figures. They’re doing 4x the tests we do.
