More than a thousand people a week than average are dying in Britain in 2023. The experts blame “unhealthy lifestyles”.
Hundreds more middle-aged Brits are dying every month than expected, with experts blaming unhealthy lifestyles and the NHS crisis for the surge in excess deaths. An extra 28,000 deaths, or more than 1,000 a week, were logged across the UK in the first six months of the year, according to fresh analysis of official figures.
The spike in mortality is especially stark among people aged 50 to 64, with 15 per cent more dying than usual. Most of these deaths were caused by largely preventable illnesses, including heart disease, liver damage and diabetes.
Data from the Office for National Statistics shows 353,047 fatalities were recorded between January and June this year. This is 28,024, or 8.6 per cent, more than the 325,023 expected over that period.
Of course, what the experts don’t tell the media is that they have quietly redefined “unhealthy lifestyle” as “getting vaxxed”.
