COVID-19 leads to moderate excess mortality in April
12-06-2020 | STATEC

In April 2020, STATEC counted 397 deaths, all causes of death combined, of persons residing in Luxembourg. This figure is higher than that recorded in previous years. The increase in the number of deaths is 21.4% compared to recent years (327 deaths in 2018 and 2019). A comparable number of deaths (397 deaths) can be traced back to April 1975. The average age of people who have died from the coronavirus in Luxembourg is 83 years. The average age of the persons who died in April 2020 (all sexes and causes combined) is 78.6 years, which confirms that the lethality by COVID-19 is higher among persons aged 80+ years.
