What we see here, so far, is excess mortality continues to trend higher among all ages. So far, excess death is up 16% compared to a year ago. We started the year in negative territory, but as the year progressed, excess deaths have risen again. We went above the 2021 excess death threshold the end of January, 2022.
So far, this year, we have had 129,513 more deaths to date than expected across ALL ages.
Now we have the age 25-44 group.
This one is an interesting one to watch. So far this year, there is a 36% increase in excess death compared to a year ago. We have a surplus of 15,000+ deaths in this age group. The reason I watch this one so closely is that this is normally your healthiest, lowest risk of death age group we have.
