There has continued to be a high numbers of excess deaths in young and middle aged people within the UK based on comparison with the five year average. Finally, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) is admitting that this is the case in a paper published in the Lancet where it has been stated that there were 7.2% or 44,255 more deaths registered in the UK in 2022. They also state that the this has persisted into 2023 with 8.6% or 28,024 more deaths registered in the first six months of the year alone.
