March-June 2020: Almost 170.000 additional deaths in the European Union

In 2020, among the 26 EU Member States for which data are available, there were 168.000 more deaths during weeks 10-26 (March – June) than the average number of deaths during the same period over the four years 2016 to 2019. These data include all deaths, irrespective of their causes, but can be useful for assessing the direct and indirect effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the European population.
