Excess Deaths per 100,000 Population Due to COVID-19 Pandemic, 2020-2021 Annual Average

The difference between the number of deaths in 2020 and 2021 and the deaths predicted for the same period if pre-pandemic trends had continued under normal circumstances as published by the World Health Organization. The difference reflects the number of deaths associated with the COVID-19 pandemic both directly through the coronavirus, SARS CoV-2, and indirectly through changes in access to health services and in people’s behavior. Negative values indicate the number of deaths averted due to lower risks from certain causes of deaths, such as traffic accidents and influenza, due to changes in people’s behavior. Mean estimates per 100,000 population are presented; low and high estimates are available from the WHO.
