My pandemic excess mortality estimate update, age standardised using 5, 7 and 8 year linear trend baselines.

#NewZealand and #Denmark the clear winners so far. #Sweden clearly establishing as next least in Europe anyway.


Data from @HMDatabase and @EU_Eurostat. ImageImageImage
#Sweden's infamous ~3% of deaths with unknown date sourced from @EU_Eurostat for all charts.

Adding those in more detail than before has the slightly paradoxical effect of reducing their excess by 20-25% as it makes their downward trend less steep.

1/18.๐Ÿ“œNEW BLOG: We have seen quite a few pledges that have been framed as โ€œfinance for #LossAndDamageโ€. But are they really? This blog provides an overview of all the pledges thus far at #COP27 in chronological order.

2/18. On the 20th of September, #Denmark๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ฐ pledged โ‚ฌ13m for #LossAndDamage, a package which includes finance for the #GlobalShield Against Climate Risk, support for CSOs to do projects on the ground, and some other money that is yet to be allocated for a specific use.
3/18. Crucially, all of this money is new and on top of #Denmarkโ€™s ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ฐ 0.7% commitment to ODA, therefore not a diversion of cash from other vital #ClimateFinance projects.

BREAKING: #BNNNewZealand Reports.

The New Zealand government said in a statement on Thursday that, it will introduce open banking in the next two years. This change would make the sector the first one, to have rules giving consumers full control of their financial data.
David Clark, Minister of Commerce and Consumer Affairs said in a statement that, "Open banking ensures banks must share customer information if they request it, making it easier for New Zealanders to compare mortgage rates, apply for loans and switch banks".
This "Open banking" system is in place in countries like Australia and United Kingdom. "Open banking" is the process of banks and other traditional financial institutions, which gives easy digital access to their financial data to the customers and third parties.

This excellent report by @kathrynsbach is very sobering. Every country, especially those who have let #Covid rip, can expect major economic damage because of #LongCovid. But as a survivor of a historical epidemic that triggered mass #MECFS I think there's plenty more to come. A๐Ÿงต
2/ What governments worldwide don't yet seem to realise is that - even if the pandemic ends tomorrow, and not a single extra person falls victim to #LongCovid henceforth - the damage to people's lives & entire economies will likely snowball significantly over time.
3/ They don't realise this yet because governments worldwide have collectively ignored #MECFS etc for decades. They've failed to learn from previous viral epidemics that have triggered long-term disability, because they've failed to track adverse health outcomes longitudinally.
