Life - Articles - Four months of excess mortality


During the coronavirus pandemic, the Continuous Mortality Investigation (CMI) is publishing frequent UK mortality analysis through its mortality monitor. Today’s updates cover week 44 of 2021 (30 October to 5 November), based on provisional England & Wales deaths data published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) on 16 November 2021.

 The key points of this update are:
 • The number of deaths registered in England & Wales in week 44 of 2021 was 1,086 higher than if mortality rates had been the same as in week 44 of 2019; equivalent to 10% more deaths than expected.
 
 • There have been around 113,500 more deaths from all causes than expected in the UK from the start of the pandemic to 5 November 2021. Of these, 40,600 have occurred in 2021.
 
 • The number of deaths in England & Wales with COVID-19 mentioned on the death certificate was 995 in week 44 of 2021.

 Cobus Daneel, Chair of the CMI Mortality Projections Committee, said: “The latest ONS data shows the highest number of COVID-19 deaths in a week in England & Wales since March 2021. Excess mortality has been at a similar level to COVID-19 deaths for the last four months. This indicates that non-COVID deaths were similar to 2019 – the last pre-pandemic year.”
 All mortality monitor weekly updates are publicly available on the mortality monitor page.
