Data published by the Office for National Statistics reveals that 70% of deaths due to all causes excluding Covid-19 during the first 6 months of 2021 were among people who had received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine.
The data was published in a report from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) analysing Covid-19 deaths by vaccination status between January 2nd 2021 and July 2nd 2021. Table 1 of the report shows that there were 51,281 deaths involving Covid-19, and 214,701 deaths not involving Covid-19 that occurred during this time frame.
The ONS were attempting to shows how well the Covid-19 vaccines are working through grouping deaths involving Covid-19 by vaccination status.
However, they failed to mention that the majority of deaths involving Covid-19 occurred during January 2021 when the mass majority of the population had not received a Covid-19 vaccine, meaning the majority of Covid-19 deaths were of course among the unvaccinated population.
Table 1 of the ONS report shows that between 2nd January and 2nd July 2021 there were 38,964 deaths among the unvaccinated population. However, further data from ONS found in their ‘Deaths registered weekly in England‘ dataset shows that 31,538 of deaths involving Covid-19 occurred between January 2nd and January 31st.
