● Excess Deaths in the COVID-19 Pandemic in India

Excess death estimates, reflecting a combination of covid- 19 and non-covid-19 factors, are required to understand the full impact of the pandemic. Relatively little is known about excess deaths in low and middle income countries (LMIC) owing to weaknesses of official statistics on number of deaths and causes of death. India has the second largest number of covid-19 infections globally and is thus an important LMIC. We contribute to the measurement of two key facts: all causes excess deaths and an upper bound for the IFR.
