What are the causes of death in the pandemic?


All reports concerning death from COVID-19 point out that most people who die have underlying diseases.

For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.9 additional conditions or causes per death.”   uploaded December, 2020
