  • The Covid-19 death rate in Northern Ireland since the second wave of the virus is running at four times that of the rate in the Republic.
  • Since the Northern Executive imposed a four-week lockdown on October 16th, there have been 183 coronavirus deaths in Northern Ireland up to Monday, November 9th.
  • Were the populations the same and based on the Northern death rate the death figure in the North would be about 450 deaths – more than four times that of the Republic.
