Excess Mortality During the COVID-19 Pandemic in Jordan: Secondary Data Analysis   [open pdf - 296KB]

From the Introduction: "The impact of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] and its response measures on health, economy, and society has been substantial. By the end of 2020, more than 380 million COVID-19 cases were confirmed worldwide, and more than 1.9 million deaths were attributed to COVID-19 [...]. In Jordan, the death toll has reached 3834, with more than 294,000 people diagnosed with COVID-19 at the end of 2020 [...]. The number of officially reported COVID-19 deaths in Jordan [...] does not reflect the true burden of the pandemic because some people with COVID-19 died without being diagnosed and because of the indirect impact of COVID-19 and its response measures."
