### Covid inquiry: The UK pandemic in numbers

Explore the data on how the coronavirus pandemic unfolded in the UK.

www.bbc.co.uk

UK population roughly 67,500,000

So roughly 0.3% of the population died, agreed?

The UK has 650 MPs, not sure what your metric for politicians is? How about scientists? I have no idea, but lets say we have 1600 so with MPs 2,250 in total of any note that you may be expected to hear about dying? The figure is of course a lot less, but lets go with it. That means of the whole population 0.3% died of covid and 0.003% are in your group. What are the chances, in any sample set, of these two groups having any overlap?

Then bear in mind they all had jobs where they could shield if they wanted, could send others to do their shopping etc.
