WHO:新冠死亡人数可能三倍于之前统计

The number of people who died as a result of the coronavirus pandemic by the end of last year may be nearly three times higher than previously thought, according to estimates by the World Health Organization.

根据世界卫生组织(WHO)的估计,截至去年底全球死于新冠大流行的人数可能达到之前统计的近三倍。

The WHO calculation is based on an analysis of excess mortality, an approach used by demographers to measure the real impact of the health crisis that compares average death rates with those recorded during the pandemic.

世卫组织的计算基于对“超额死亡率”——将平均死亡率与大流行期间的死亡率进行比较——的分析,这是人口学家用来衡量公共卫生危机的真实影响的一种方法。

By the close of 2021, there were 14.9mn excess deaths “associated directly or indirectly” with the pandemic recorded globally, according to the health body. There were 5.4mn officially confirmed Covid-19 deaths in 2020 and 2021, according to research project Our World in Data.

据世卫组织介绍,到2021年底,全球记录的与新冠大流行“直接或间接相关”的超额死亡人数为1490万人,而根据研究项目“用数据看世界”(Our World In Data)的数据,2020年和2021年有540万例官方确认的新型冠状病毒肺炎(COVID-19,即2019冠状病毒病)死亡病例。
