11. They figure the number at the end of the year is 470,000

But those figures only measure excess deaths through the week ending December 19, when the official confirmed death toll was at 316,000. Since then, another 31,000 lost souls have been added to the official count. Excess deaths during the pandemic have hovered around twenty percent, meaning that in the past two weeks, itís likely that an additional 6,000 deaths have been undercounted ó meaning the current number of excess deaths is likely around 470,000.
