The above Figures are per 1,000,000 of population the Covid Mortality figures are expressed differently to the following crude mortality figures for the leading causes of death which are expressed as a ratio of 1 / 100,000
SO the World 623 deaths per million is 62.3 deaths per 100,000
In the UK 2041 deaths per million are 204.1 deaths per 100,000
( In the original of this I got my maths wrong?)
The following is the correct conversion
On this measure of Crude mortality, Covid does not make it into the top ten causes of Death
This statement in the original post is wrong Covid is in the middle ranking top ten causes of death . As flu had all but disappeared it is interesting to note thatcommanal garden flu often will make it into this gruesome top ten in many years as it did in Sweden in 2019.

Crude mortality rate
The “crude mortality rate” is another very simple measure which, like the CFR, gives something that might sound like the answer to the question “if someone is infected, how likely are they to die?”.
But, just as with CFR, it is actually very different.
The crude mortality rate – sometimes also called the crude death rate – measures the share among the entire population that have died from a particular disease. It’s calculated by dividing the number of deaths from the disease by the total population. For instance, if there were 10 deaths in a population of 1,000, the crude mortality rate would be [10 / 1,000], or 1%.
Unfortunately, writers sometimes confuse case fatality rates and crude death rates. A common example is the Spanish flu pandemic in 1918. One estimate for the death toll of the Spanish flu, by Johnson and Mueller (2002), is that the pandemic killed 50 million people.2 That would have been 2.7% of the world population at the time. This means the crude mortality rate was 2.7%.
But 2.7% is often misreported as the case fatality rate – which is wrong, because not everyone in the world was infected with the virus that caused the Spanish flu. If the crude mortality rate really was 2.7%, then the case fatality rate was much higher – it would be the percentage of people who died after being diagnosed with the disease. [We looked at the global death count of the Spanish flu pandemic and others here.]
The most deadly diseases
Tuberculosis: Determining which are the most deadly VPDs requires acknowledging that some vaccinations are more effective than others. While most vaccines included in national routine schedules are highly effective, a better vaccine for tuberculosis (TB) is desperately needed. It is Sub-Saharan Africa and parts of Asia in particular that are affected by TB, as the world map shows.
The vaccine for TB – Bacillus Calmette–Guérin (BCG) – has been in use for nearly 100 years. It protects against severe forms of TB but is not effective against pulmonary TB (in the lungs) and has variable effectiveness against TB in adults.16,17
Furthermore, resistance of antibiotics used to treat TB is increasing, meaning some people can no longer be cured by drugs. The estimated number of people in 2016 with multi-drug resistant TB was 490,000.
The fact that there is not a fully effective vaccine and that antibiotic treatment is facing serious difficulties makes TB the most deadly VPD.
Meningococcal meningitis and hepatitis B are also deadly VPDs.
Meningococcal Meningitis: Despite the introduction of MenAfriVac in 2010, an effective vaccine against the most common type of meningitis in that region, meningococcal meningitis killed almost 130,000 people in 2016. Many cases occur in the so-called ‘meningitis belt’ of sub-Saharan Africa, crossing from Senegal to Ethiopia. Not all the countries in the meningitis belt have implemented mass vaccination campaigns for MenAfriVac and also do not benefit from the expensive MenACWY vaccine introduced into richer countries to protect against other types of meningococcal meningitis.18,19
Hepatitis B: The vaccine against hepatitis B is also very effective (an estimated 95% effectiveness in preventing disease), meaning increased vaccination could lead to a significant reduction in deaths. Still, global coverage of the hepatitis B vaccine is lagging. In 2015, while 84% coverage was reached for the third dose of the vaccine, the coverage for the birth dose was only 39%. Estimates from mathematical models have shown that if infant coverage would reach 90%, and the first dose administered at birth, 84% of global hepatitis B-related deaths could be prevented.20

Given the imminent threat to the NHS we have decided to give free access to The Great NHS Heist film, in the run up to the General Election. Information is the lifeblood of democracy & to this end we hope this film will help you decide how to vote and become active citizens in the defence of the NHS.
