The Financial Times continues its survey of death rates attributable to the Covid pandemic, following on from its earlier report which we referenced last week. The metrics are those of excess deaths (that is deaths after subtracting those over the same period averaged over several years), and of excess deaths per million people.  The data only cover those countries producing comparable figures (19 countries – Brazil is not included). Excess deaths include, for example: those due to failure to seek hospital treatment for some other complaint, for fear of Covid; and for Peru, the figure is enhanced because it also includes excess deaths from other ongoing epidemics such as dengue. Per million people, Spain is worst with the UK close behind and Peru at less than half their figure. Looking at excess deaths compared to historical averages, Peru is worst with 100% and the UK next with 60% excess deaths. The US and Chile come out at just over 20%.
