2503 deaths related to COVID-19 deaths were registered by the Ministry of Health throughout 2020. Nearly three-quarters of deaths were registered in the last quarter of the year. From the beginning of October until the end of the year, a total of 1764 people died. After months, the highest number of deaths was registered in November, 769. December went a little better when in 31 days the death toll rose by 740 people. The highest monthly growth was achieved between November and December. On average, in 2020, 7 people died daily as a result of COVID-19. If it is known that the first deaths were registered in March, the average number of patients who died in the other three quarters of the year exceeded 9 per day, reveals Sitel’s analysis.
A review of the number of patients who died as a result of the coronavirus shows that the epidemic in the country last year had three peaks. The strongest was in November, and the previous two were registered in June and April.
And the data on mortality in 2020, although not yet complete, still announce that this year we will have the largest number of deaths for various reasons in the last 10 years. The State Statistical Office has already announced that in the second and third quarter of 2020 there were the highest number of deaths in the last 5 to 10 years, and fears are that the data for the last 3 months of the year when they were registered and 70% of the total number of deaths from COVID-19 will be the quarter with the most registered deaths since independence.
