    Stats have been released for deaths in the North of Ireland (these figures go back to 1887).

    2020 = 17,424 deaths (Corona Virus)

    In 2017 it was 16,036 deaths

    1973 = 17,669
    1951 = 17,628
    1943 = 17,347 (WW2)
    1918 = 25,013 (WW1 & Spanish Flu)

    The population of NI has grown a lot in the past 10 years to 1.8m

    There is an ageing population.

    Historically 2020 just looks like a year with a bad flu season. 1951 and 1973 had higher totals than 2020.
