Heart and circulatory system deaths in the UK have spiked by more than 500 a week, a major research project has revealed. 'Experts' are blaming the sudden increase on “extreme disruption” to the NHS caused by the pandemic. So its nothing to do with all the blood clots and inflammation of herat tissue cases that have been linked to certain aspects of the response to pandemic then? (Sorry to be coy but we've only just got off the shit list and are having our first decent month in over a year for page views. Don't want to upset the auto - modrator again so soon.
The study of government data identified almost 100,000 extra deaths among people with cardiovascular disease (CVD) since spring 2020.
An NHS representative told the media that the increase was caused by disruption to heart care and increasing ambulance delays for heart attack and stroke victims had left Britain “in the grip of a heart and stroke care emergency”.
The British Heart Foundation (BHF) analysis of data from the Government’s Office for Health Improvement and Disparities (OHID) revealed an extra 96,540 deaths of patients with heart conditions since February 2020.
While excess cardiovascular deaths in the first year of the pandemic were linked to coronavirus infections, heart deaths have remained high since Covid deaths fell. But once people have been vaccinated they stay vaccinated and are prone to being affected by the known adverse reactions. On the other hand, when unvaccinated people come into contact with COVID their auto - immune system deals with it and it is gone, leaving the person with lasting natural immunity.
Earlier this year news organisations in the USA were reporting
data from the American Heart Association highlights the major impact COVID-19 had on cardiovascular health and death rates during the first year of the pandemic.
At least 928,741 Americans died from cardiovascular disease-related causes in 2020, the annual statistical report revealed. That represents the largest one-year increase since 2015 and tops the previous high of 910,000 deaths recorded in 2003, according to the American Heart Association.
"This is our first real evidence based on the impact of the early years of the pandemic," Dr. Connie Tsao, chair of the Statistical Update writing group and assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, said.
It's something experts had predicted.
"This was not surprising," Dr. Michelle Albert, volunteer president of the American Heart Association and chair in cardiology and professor of medicine at the University of California at San Francisco, told ABC News.
COVID-19 had both direct and indirect impacts on the increased rates of cardiovascular disease-related deaths, experts said.
