Bewilligung: 10.12.2020
Laufzeit: 1 Jahr 6 Monate


The COVID-19 pandemic revealed notable shortcomings of existing data collection systems suffering from a lack of internationally comparable procedures and definitions. The project relies on a transparent approach allowing to provide internationally comparable evidence based on weekly excess deaths and mortality rates. The main practical outcome of the project is a comprehensive and freely accessible international database ensuring timely and reliable monitoring of the pandemic and other potential health threats in the future.
