At risk of being maudlin, where are the deaths occurring? We are people being admitted to ICU and being discharged so are they dying before they hit ICU or not even making it to hospital?
1 ICU death in the last week.
This can come on very quickly and depending on the age/underlying condition, I'm guessing most deaths don't make it to ICU or there's no point because it'd be pointless. About 20% of our ICU admissions have died, I believe. So 'only' 90 of our total death toll.
You’re not going to intubate a 90 year old - look at the median age of death ffs
Ok so we can possibly assume they're dying in regular beds or even in nursing homes/at home?
Which then begs the question - despite all the measures in place, it's still nigh on impossible to shield the older cohorts of society... the ones we're allegedly protecting by imposing all the restrictions.

I see Press Up are threatening court action if they are kept closed beyond October 10th.
Can't blame them. They have a huge portfolio and quite a few fit out & construction projects underway. They could very well be feeling the pinch from the banks at the moment with a lot of money going out and not a lot coming in.
There's only so much money you can make out of a Wowburger portakabin.
