Are the UK COVID-19 Government statistics wrong?
AS the Office for National Statistics (ONS)
published data on number of deaths from Covid-19, it is now
thought that the Government has vastly under-estimated the true
number, but Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said the UK
Government is being "transparent" despite the
accusations. He has also welcomed the ONS figures, saying they
show overall deaths and those in care homes are coming down.
