What is happening to non-covid deaths?

In this feature by John Appleby (BMJ 2020;369:m1607, doi:10.1136/bmj.m1607) figure 2 used weekly death data that separated out deaths from underlying respiratory diseases from other non-covid causes. These data overlap so the separation is not accurate. A redrawn figure has been included in the version posted online and the data in the figure and the text have been updated to include numbers up to 17 April.
