2) Many countries have serious numbers of excess deaths, not just major countries. Here they are ranked by excess deaths as % of annual deaths.
3) Some of the excess death rankings can differ if per 100k people or % of annual, or as undercount ratio of excess:official #COVID19 deaths.

Besides US with big population, Russia 🇷🇺 and Mexico 🇲🇽 and South Africa 🇿🇦 definitely have large excesses.
4) Russia 🇷🇺 excess deaths has been just crazy huge—and growing fast.
5) Here is the animation of the explosive excess deaths in Russia. Figure by @hippopedoid.
6) Unfortunately many countries did not provide the data, including China 🇨🇳 India 🇮🇳 Vietnam 🇻🇳 and Liberia 🇱🇷.

7) Excess mortality by geographic region. South America (green) has terrifyingly high excess. Compare Sweden 🇸🇪 high excess deaths to neighbors Denmark, Finland & Norway with little to none.

8) USA excess deaths exceeded 400k for 2020

CDC estimates up to 569k since start of #COVID19 pandemic.

Mississippi, New Jersey, and Arizona have the highest per capita.
9) 1 year of life expectancy lost... in just half a year of a pandemic. Sobering. Especially for minorities. https://twitter.com/drericding/status/1362371217261355008
