    Could very well be... but there are only just under 9 months left in the year, we'd need another 11 deaths to overtake 2017, and the average monthly rate is usually about 1 per month. Even with a few direct or indirect Covid deaths, overtaking is not guaranteed.

    He'll probably be in ITU primarily because he's the prime minister. Covid19 patients can deteriorate rapidly. If he'd reached the point of requiring a bit of oxygen, they'd probably want him where they can rapidly intubate and ventilate if things go further south fast. Certain jobs can get you priority treatment, fairly or otherwise. Alternatively, yes, it's very possible that they're lying to us.

    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    The current figures from ONS have weekly mortality in the week up to the 27th of March as 1,011 above the 5 year average, although deaths where Covid 19 was mentioned on the death certificate totalled only 539. Possibly some of the increase was down to the stretched health service being unable to address other problems; with some attributable to undiagnosed Covid 19, and maybe some to random variation. https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/bulletins/deathsregisteredweeklyinenglandandwalesprovisional/weekending27march2020 Given the current daily rate of Covid 19 mortality is similar to the weekly rate in that week, I expect next week's update will show a total that's a few thousand higher than average.

    The 8th Death of 2020

    The per capita rate of mortality in the most affected country, San Marino, is significantly higher (0.9 per thousand). In the most affected towns in Italy it's over 1%. Given that the epidemic has a long way to run in many countries, that in particular the death rate is still rising in the USA, the UK, and France, and how frail the people on the list are... it seems fairly reasonable to expect a few Covid deaths among the people on the list.

    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    I would estimate that we pass 65,000 deaths within the next 5 days Current death toll: 72,607. Steve, would you please just stop making massively overoptimistic predictions?

    Deathlist Correctlist 2020

    So I design a game, and then it turns out I'm not very good at it. (Just 2 hits out of 7 deaths so far).

    The 8th Death of 2020

    Guessing at Bob Dole. The USA seems to be one of the next places getting to a bad way with Covid 19, and he's as frail as anyone on the list.

    Sickest game in the world

    I'm wondering how much of that is low reporting from Sunday, or whether deaths have actually dropped. Will be interesting to see tomorrow's tally.

    There's a link to it from this rebuttal of the claim by his spokesman: https://www.businessinsider.com/boris-johnson-hospital-persistent-coronavirus-symptoms-russia-ventilator-disinformation-covid-2020-4?r=US&IR=T
