You're now 15 times more likely to die ‘from Covid’ in the EU, compared to the UK

Latest deaths per million figures make grim reading for the EU

Brexit Britain continues to show up the EU Commission’s dire performance

Despite optimistic statements from the EU Commission that it is improving its performance on Covid-19, the latest figures on ‘deaths per million’ show just how much better the United Kingdom has performed.

Our research of the latest data gives a startling result. You are now over 15 times more likely to die ‘from Covid’ in the EU27 than in the UK. Below we show the troubling reality.

Brexit Facts4EU.Org Summary

Likelihood of dying from Covid-19 (7-day rolling average)

You are:-

  • 38 times more likely to die in Poland
  • 16 times more likely to die in Italy
  • 13 times more likely to die in France
  • 8 times more likely to die in Germany
  • 5 times more likely to die in Spain

The above are the five largest EU27 countries, accounting for two-thirds of the EU's total population.

What we have shown above are the official figures, as at Friday 23 April 2021. Many EU27 countries are now going their own way, bypassing the EU Commission. The days of ‘solidarity’ and ‘unity’ seem to be long gone. We can only hope that the independent action now being taken by individual governments of EU27 countries will prove successful.

Remainer-Rejoiners claim that if the United Kingdom had still been a member of the EU, it could still have pursued its own vaccination strategy. We would ask them one, simple question:

"If that's true, why did all 27 EU countries follow the EU Commission's disastrous programme?"
