TMR Podcast: The true COVID death toll

1 minute read

The virus has so far claimed more than 1.3 million lives, but the true scale of pandemic-related mortality is still hidden below the surface.

We may never really know how many excess deaths the pandemic has caused, but it is well worth trying to find out.

Excess mortality marks the difference between how many deaths occurred over a specific period of time and the number of deaths that were expected to occur over that period based on historical trends.

This episode features TMR’s COVID-19 blogger Bianca Nogrady, who has been exploring what is known about the true scale of pandemic-related mortality.
