The UK Government measure the Covid infection rate by the number of cases per 100,000 people. They use this number as a reason for putting restrictions into place.

If you use the same calculations to measure the death rate in the UK since 1970, you can see that the year 2020, was the 15th lowest for the number of deaths in a year out of the last 50 years.

0.89% (900 deaths per 100,000 people) of the population died in 2020, compared with the highest death rate in 1976 of 1.06% (1065 deaths per 100,000 people)
