General | Latest Info

Excess mortality is a term used in epidemiology and public Health that refers to the number of deaths from all causes during a crisis above and beyond what we would have expected to see under normal conditions. 1 in this case, were interested in how deaths during COVID-19 pandemic compare to the average number of deaths over the same period in previous years. Excess mortality is a more comprehensive measure of the total impact of pandemic on deaths than confirm COVID-19 Death count alone. In addition to confirmed deaths, excess mortality capture COVID-19 deaths that were not correctly diagnosed and reported 2 as well as deaths from other causes that are attributable to overall crisis conditions. 3 excess mortality can be measured in several ways. The simplest way is to take the raw number of deaths observed in give period in 2020-say Week 10, which ends on 8 March 4-and subtract the average number of deaths in that week over previous years, for example, last five. While the raw number of deaths helps give the US a rough sense of scale, this measure has its limitations, including being less comparable across countries due to large differences in populations. The measure that is more comparable across countries is P-score, which calculates excess mortality as the percentage difference between the number of weekly deaths in 2020 and the average number of deaths in the same week over the previous five years. For example, if a country had a P-score of 100% in give week in 2020, that would mean the death count for that week was 100% higher than-that is, double-The average death count in the same week over the previous five years. While P-score is a useful measure, it too has limitations. For example, five-year average death count might be a relatively crude measure of normal deaths because it does not account for trends in population size or mortality. For more in-depth discussion of the limitations and strengths of different measures of excess mortality, see our article with John Muellbauer and Janine Aron. Mortality data is incomplete in recent weeks because of delays in death reporting. For example, based on a 2016 study, the CDC estimates that death reporting in the US is approximately 27% complete within 2 weeks, 54% complete within 4 weeks, and at least 75% complete within 8 weeks of when death occur. 5 Similar delays in death reporting exist for all countries to varying extents. To avoid showing data that is incomplete and therefore inaccurate, we do not show the most recent 1-4 weeks of each countrys data series. Decisions about how many weeks to exclude are made separately. For each country to only show data that is at least 80% complete, based on empirical studies of delays in Death reporting. 6 chart here shows excess mortality during pandemic for all ages using P-score.

The growth factor is a factor by which quantity multiplies over time. Formula use is every day's new deaths / new deaths on previous day. For example, quantity growing by 7% every period has a growth factor of 1. 07. A growth factor above 1 indicates increase, whereas one between 0 and 1 is a sign of decline, with quantity eventually becoming zero. Growth factor below 1 is a positive sign, whereas growth factor constantly above 1 is a sign of exponential growth.


Age and conditions of Coronavirus cases

See latest findings: Age, Sex, Demographics of COVID-19 Cases and Deaths. According to early estimates by China's National Health Commission, about 80% of those WHO die were over the age of 60 and 75% of them had pre-existing health conditions such as cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. According to WHO Situation Report no. 7 issue on Jan. 27: median age of cases detected outside of China is 45 years, ranging from 2 to 74 years. 71% of cases were male. A study of 138 hospitalized patients with NCIP found that the median age was 56 years and 75 were men. WHO, in its Myth busters FAQs, addresses the question: do new coronavirus affect older people, or are younger people also susceptible? By answering that: people of all ages can be infected by the novel coronavirus COVID-19. Older people, and people with pre-existing medical conditions appear to be more vulnerable to becoming severely ill with virus.

When Spanish Prime Minister Pedro SAnchez boasted of Spainas high rankings, he didnat pull his numbers out of thin air. On April 27, OECD wrongly ranked Spain eighth in testing per capita. Initially, OECD had used data from OWID to compile its statistics. But it source Spanish numbers independently because OWIDas data was incomplete. Mixed sources skewed Spainas position in the ranking because it counts broader category of tests than other countriesa numbers. The organization corrected itself the next day, two hours before SAnchezas press conference, bumping Spain to 17 place. At a press conference on May 9, SAnchez evade CNN question pressing him on JHU studyas existence and listing governmentas numbers on testing totals instead. In comments made to a Spanish reporter the next day, Health Minister Salvador Illa continued to insist testing data had been released by JHU, though he pointed to Worldometer as the underlying source. Since Johns Hopkins got its data from Worldometer, he argue, itas just as good.
