20K+ UK Deaths from COVID-19 in 2022


About 75,000 British people died of Covid in 2020 and a roughly similar number in 2021, despite strict lockdown measures.

Will more than 20,000 people die within 28 days of a positive Covid test in the UK in 2022?

If, according to the UK Coronavirus Dashboard, the total cumulative number of deaths on 31 December 2022 is more than 20,000 higher than it was on 31 December 2021 (149,000), then this question will resolve positively. Otherwise it will resolve negatively.
