39 dead after 160,000 cases of omicron

Published 28 December 2021 at 09.32

Omikron entered the UK in November and the first death of an omikron-infected person occurred on 13 December.

But after more than a month with the virus in the country, only 39 people have still died during an ongoing omicron infection, despite the fact that a total of 159,932 people have now tested positive for omicron. It shows yesterday’s official figures.

Even before the corona, however, humans died, mainly from natural causes. In Sweden, with 10 million inhabitants, 7,660 people died the month before the corona, according to SCB. Of 159,932 Swedes, 124 people die a month from natural causes.

This does not mean that the mortality rate among non-chronically infected Britons is lower than for Swedes on average, as most Britons have contracted the disease in recent weeks. Nevertheless, it can be concluded that mortality is so low that it is still not measurable.
