590 of these poor individuals were people in hospital at the end of their lives due to some other condition. They probably caught Covid in the hospital and then had their cause of death noted as Covid. How many of us know someone that had terminal cancer recently but had their death recorded as Covid. I'm not a conspiricy nut, I believe Covid is out there, but these death figures are being inflated to suit some agenda.
Me and my husband Cllr Matthew saggers would like to extend our condolences to all the families and friends of those that have lost their lives.
My Mother was in PAH last October, she was due to be released after being treated for an infection. However just before discharge she tested positive for Covid. The infection was definitely caught whilst in hospital. No other source. Visitors were not allowed due to infection control. We were only allowed to see my mother to say goodbye. My mother like so many other hospital patients caught Covid whilst being treated for a minor illness. The death certificate registered the cause of death as Covid because it was. Unfortunately, my father also caught Covid, whilst receiving respite care. His death certificate also recorded Covid because it was Covid that he died from. Please don’t assume that the medical profession are just putting Covid on death certificates for the sake of it. It is disrespectful to the memories of these victims.and their relatives. We have have to live with the consequences of this horrendous virus. This is no conspiracy believe me.
To Citizen: I very much doubt that you have proof that 590 died from "some other conditions" as well as Covid. In making this claim you disrespect the memory of all those that have died as a direct or indirect result of this far from imaginary disease The assertions of inflated death figures to suit an unspecified agenda do suggest you could well be a conspiracy nut (your words) and further suggests that you might not wear mask and may also think that the No 10 parties last year were within the "rules" For your own sake, and that of others near and dear to you, I really hope that you are vaccinated, but if not, please get the jab and don't run the risk of catching it or passing it to your family. With lower than average vaccination rates in Harlow and increasing cases in the town, this is a serious matter.
Dear people of Harlow. My very good friend of over 40 years passed away early January this year. He was taken into hospital after waiting 7hrs for a ambulance. He had a minor infection in his leg. Whist being in hospital he rapidly went down hill. His family and I were not allowed to visit, so all over Xmas and new year he saw no one but hospital staff. 3days before he passed he contracted covid and died. Would he still be alive now if we had been allowed to see him and maybe see what was happening, we will never know but like many I miss him and wished I could have done more! Oh and also we wouldn't let them put covid as cause of death because it wasn't!!!!
