WESTMINSTER, U.K., March 11, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Statistics released in the U.K., reveal that a  significant amount of excess deaths have occurred at home since the start of COVID-19 lockdowns, whilst hospital mortality remained largely below average, suggesting that a lack of access to health services due to lockdown could be the cause.

Figures released Tuesday by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) in the U.K., provide an in-depth examination of the death toll which has occurred during the past year, and shed light on a little reported aspect of the COVID-19 lockdown measures. The data runs from March 7, 2020 and February 26, 2021. The UK’s lockdown commenced on March 23, 2020, with the first significant easing being on June 15, when “non-essential shops” were permitted to re-open.
