[Tweet 1/2: More people died of covid in the last 6 hours in the UK than have died since the beginning of the pandemic in New Zealand.
You can come up with a thousand excuses, from population to population density, and it will still show the UK in an abominably poor light.]
[Tweet 2/2: if you're finding the comparison difficult, here's another way of looking at the situation...
UK covid deaths: 139,326 NZ covid deaths: 28
NZ covid deaths scaled to the same population as the UK: 386
So we've had 138,940 more deaths than NZ, even adjusting for population size.]
Don't be an arsehole: get vaccinated and wear a fucking mask.
