England has highest death rate

The COVID DIARIES – 123 30th July

Data showing the effect of the coronavirus across Europe has shown that England had the highest levels of excess deaths.

It is the first time the Office for National Statistics has compared mortality rates in different countries to measure the impact of the pandemic.

The data – which allows comparisons between 29 European countries and treats the four nations of the United Kingdom  separately – shows that the cumulative death rate at the end of May places England ahead of Spain as the worst-affected country.
