World, As Seen from the most beautiful islands: Ireland and Cyprus

There is no excess mortality in the EU, however Greece and Cyprus lag behind the optimistic trend


For the first time since February 2020, there is no excess mortality in the EU. Three years after the pandemic, the indicator fell by two percent in February 2023, according to Statistics Eurostat. This means that mortality is now below the baseline level, which is the average number of deaths in the period 2016 to 2019.

The excess mortality in the EU was still plus eight percent a year ago (39 000 additional deaths) and plus six percent (26 000 additional cases) in February 2021. In February 2020, i.e. shortly before the outbreak of Corona, the mortality rate was still minus three percent. The worst month during the pandemic was November 2020, when 40 percent more people died than usual. In January 2023, there was a significant decline according to Eurostat.

By the way, the decline is not seen throughout Europe. Greece and Cyprus still show a significantly higher number of deaths, of plus 12 percent. The Netherlands, France, Malta, Italy, Ireland and Austria all have a slightly higher number of deaths than before Corona. The rest of the countries show a decline, in some cases drastically.
