Limited impact of COVID-19 on mortality during the 1st trimester of 2020
06-05-2020 | STATEC


For this first trimester of 2020, STATEC counts 1,129 deaths, all causes of death combined. Despite the high death rate observed during the last two weeks of March, this figure is lower than the one recorded over the same periods in 2019 or 2018: 1,160 deaths (-2.7%) in 2019 and 1,272 deaths in 2018 (-11.2% ).

Exceptionally, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, STATEC communicates the number of deaths per day. An update will be carried out at the beginning of each month while the current health crisis lasts. The next update is scheduled for early June with data observed in April.
