ritain’s top government health official has claimed that restrictions during the Covid pandemic are to blame for soaring numbers of heart attacks and related sudden deaths.
Sir Chris Whitty is the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) for England, the UK government’s Chief Medical Adviser, and head of the public health profession.
In the UK alone, there are currently 800 more people dying each week over normal levels, and only half of that is due to Covid, London’s The Times reported.
Governments around the world have so far failed to provide any clear answers for the spike in excess sudden deaths and heart failure.
However, Professor Whitty has now alerted the UK Government about how barriers to accessing medication may have contributed.
According to Whitty, thousands of middle-aged people are now dying of heart conditions after many were reluctant to bother doctors and hospitals during the pandemic.
This year has seen a higher number of deaths than normal from preventable conditions as many have missed out on statins or pills for blood pressure amid lockdowns.
