I think because the link / image quoted showed England / England and Wales figures --
Official rates: https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulat...s/november2020

6. Deaths registered in the year-to-date

There were 517,148 deaths registered in England and 33,469 in Wales during the first 11 months (January to November) of 2020.
Add on the figures for Ireland and Scotland to reach the total.
From 'monthly deaths excel - including December - https://www.nisra.gov.uk/publications/monthly-deaths N.Ireland: 17,613
From 'monthly deaths excel - Scotland (not including December) https://www.nrscotland.gov.uk/statis...ed-in-scotland - 58,084

Total Deaths - UK - 626,314 (plus December's figures for Wales, Scotland and England)
You would have to do the same for each year to compare if there was a huge increase or not

If I read it right it says the death rate was higher in 2008 and I don't remember much fuss being made of it at the time!

I don't understand the data either.
AFAIK the swine flu wasn't a huge killer in the UK, but the 2008/2009 financial crisis may have contributed to more suicides. Who knows.

Ontario on 'Stay at home order' from 14th. (plus other restrictions - see link)
Effective Thursday, January 14, 2021at 12:01 a.m., the government is issuing a stay-at-home order requiring everyone to remain at home with exceptions for essential purposes, such as going to the grocery store or pharmacy, accessing health care services, for exercise or for essential work. This order and other new and existing public health restrictions are aimed at limiting people's mobility and reducing the number of daily contacts with those outside an immediate household. In addition to limiting outings to essential trips, all businesses must ensure that any employee who can work from home, does work from home.

Hard to say what it will be in Canada, but COVID will likely be the 3rd leading cause of death in the US for 2020, only heart disease and cancer being worse.

I am never really sure what a ‘big box store’ is. Costco?

Costco would count. I think it's stores that would sell multiple things, for example food, appliances, clothes and other things. So Walmart would possibly fall into that category too.

Yep, you do not want to catch COVID if you have type 2 diabetes that's for damn sure.

FB might ask you to log in to view it -just click 'not now' and you will still be able to read it.

Yes type 2 seems to not be a good mix. My wife has type 2 (medication induced) and we worry about it because of that she would have a higher risk than someone her age without it.

So what has changed here? From the article:
  • All non-essential retail stores, including hardware stores, alcohol retailers, and those offering curbside pickup or delivery, must open no earlier than 7 a.m. and close no later than 8 p.m. The restricted hours of operation do not apply to stores that primarily sell food, pharmacies, gas stations, convenience stores, and restaurants for takeout or delivery.
So are non essential stores still open? And if they are 7 am to 8 pm is quite a long timeframe.

Hubby was telling me that Quebec is doing the same. It will be from 8 pm to 8am daily.

Nothing has really changed here in Toronto.

Doug Ford seemed to have ruled out curfews. From what he said today I think it would be the absolute last resort.
