This is the chart that people should be paying attention to. It tracks total mortality so it is better then charts that only track reported COVID deaths. It also allows you to see how bad COVID has been (or not as the case may be) compared to other recent (and by that I mean within the last 5 years) spike in the death rates. Weekly mortality as deviations from the baseline (Z-score) for the past 4½ years in the data-providing EuroMOMO partners, in four age groups.
More importantly is the effect it will have on olive oil. Deadly olive tree disease across Europe ‘could cost billions’
This was a policy choice. Not something the COVID virus did. But people don’t want to take responsibility. Coronavirus Has Broken America’s Food Supply
If you look at total mortality, Sweden is doing even better. And Japan is doing better then almost any modern country. Not sure why people keep acting like Japan is doing something wrong. Why isn’t Sweden exploding?
