Borders are being opened and lockdown policies are lifted as the first wave of the coronavirus peters out. We are also getting a more and more comprehensive picture of the death toll of the pandemic so far.

Data from 20 European countries shows that over 200,000 more people than usual have died since March. In this article we will explore this excess death toll.

We have seen tonnes of national coronavirus comparisons in the last couple of months. But comparing nations easily becomes misleading. The spread of the pandemic is regional rather than national.

Our analysis shows that the deaths are very unevenly distributed geographically. To better understand the spread of the virus we have gathered data on excess deaths from 500 subnational regions, and we have discovered that the 50 worst affected regions account for just under half of all the excess – or “unnormal” – deaths.
