In 2020-21, a COVID pandemic will kill 13 to 17 million people, according to the WHO.
GENEVA, Switzerland — According to the WHO, the COVID-19 pandemic killed 13.3 to 16.6 million people in 2020 and 2021, more than tripling the number of deaths directly attributed to the disease.
The World Health Organization's long-awaited estimate of the total number of deaths caused by the pandemic — including lives lost as a result of the pandemic's knock-on effects — finally puts a number on the crisis's broader impact.
"New World Health Organization estimates show that the total death toll associated directly or indirectly with the COVID-19 pandemic between January 1, 2020 and December 31, 2021 was approximately 14.9 million (range 13.3 million to 16.6 million)," according to a statement from the UN health agency.
The figure represents what is known as excess mortality as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, which has rocked much of the world for more than two years.
"These sobering data not only point to the pandemic's impact, but also to the need for all countries to invest in more resilient health systems capable of sustaining essential health services during crises, including stronger health information systems," WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said.
Excess mortality is calculated as the difference between the number of deaths that have occurred and the number that would have been expected if the pandemic had not occurred, based on data from previous years.
Excess mortality includes deaths caused directly by COVID-19, as well as deaths caused indirectly by the pandemic's impact on health systems and society.
On January 30, 2020, the WHO declared COVID an international public health emergency after cases of the new coronavirus spread beyond China.
Countries reported 5.42 million COVID-19 deaths to the WHO in 2020 and 2021, a figure that has now risen to 6.24 million, including deaths in 2022.
The Geneva-based organisation has long stated that the true number of deaths due to COVID infections would be far greater than the recorded fatalities.
