​​1. I've been told "only 367 have died of Covid-19 with no pre existing condition". Can you please provide the definitive number who have died this year of COVID-19 with no pre-existing health condition.

2. Have more people died this year than average over the last 5 years? Can you provide total deaths for each year 2015-2020.
