Real-time monitoring shows substantial excess all-cause mortality during second wave of COVID-19 in Europe, October to December 2020

Abstract: The European monitoring of excess mortality for public health action (EuroMOMO) network monitors weekly excess all-cause mortality in 27 European countries or subnational areas. During the first wave of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic in Europe in spring 2020, several countries experienced extraordinarily high levels of excess mortality. Europe is currently seeing another upsurge in COVID-19 cases, and EuroMOMO is again witnessing a substantial excess all-cause mortality attributable to COVID-19.

“…A ligeira mudança do perfil dos infectados com um aumento proporcional da contribuição de indivíduos de raça/cor branca (11% na segunda onda) pode ser reflexo das desigualdades no acesso aos serviços de saúde entre brancos, pardos e negros [24][25][26] . Embora a pandemia afete a população do país como um todo, seus impactos podem ser diferentes por conta das desigualdades que enfrentamos devido ao racismo estrutural e a situações de exclusão social que fazem parte da nossa realidade.…”

Some studies reported on all-cause mortality, [3,19] in relation to COVID-19 and infection control measures, but data on specific causes of death is usually lacking.…”
