Some of these deaths occurred a week ago! Your headline makes it sound like they all died on the same day, which would be worrying. And there you go using alarmist words like "soars" again.

It would be interesting to learn how many people died in the same period, not caused by the covid-19 virus. As just listing people that died from the virus, does not mean much if you cannot put it into perspective to what is a normal death rate.
