They are not including the deaths that occur at home or in care homes in these figures. Nor in the U.K.. so it’s not a true account of the exact figures..👍👍👍

I wouldn't ill-wish anyone. But I will save my good wishes for the poor, the deprived and the homeless; not for the privileged who've shown no sign of empathy for those less fortunate than themselves.

Very few of the rich and famous are going to die. They get preferential treatment and care. Don't be too worried for them.

Boris' stupidity is a problem.
