  • A global consortium representing 27 institutions has published findings comparing mortality in the previous five years to deaths between January and August 2020 in the first wave of the pandemic.
  • Their results show that some countries experienced excess all-cause mortality, while other nations had minimal or even decreased excess mortality.
  • Data from the UK shows substantial excess mortality in the research period.
  • Led by the University of Nicosia (UNIC) in Cyprus, the research by the Covid-19 Mortality (C-MOR) Consortium has been published in the International Journal of Epidemiology.
  • The consortium consists of partners in 22 countries across the globe, including the UK, USA, Brazil, Australia and multiple European countries.
  • The group assessed data on weekly or monthly all-cause mortality from each of the countries included, comparing data from January to August 2020 with baseline data from 2015 to 2019. They used two methods;
  • comparing the difference in observed mortality in 2020 with the 2015 to 2019 average, as well as the difference between the observed 2020 mortality with the expected number of deaths.
  • The results from the study show that several of the 22 countries included had increased all-cause excess mortality (Brazil, England, France, Italy, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Spain, Sweden, the USA, and Wales).
