So there's been "excess deaths" nearly every week since 2017?
No. there 7 weeks above the threshold for excess deaths from Jan 2017 to March 2020.
.....then about 25 straight weeks since March 2020 counting.
There have been more excess deaths every single week in 2020 than the total of all excess deaths from Jan 2017 to mid march 2020 combined.
In other words, every single week in 2020 since April equals more excess deaths in one single week than we saw in 3 years total.
