Since the pandemic began
Over 30,000 excess deaths involving heart disease
(average over 230 additional deaths a week)
Heart disease is among the most prominent diseases involved in the high numbers of excess deaths since the start of the pandemic.
While Covid-19 infection was likely a significant factor
Covid infections no longer a driving force

3,600 to 60,000 excess cancer deaths so far
