Modelling shows 7-13 mil. 'excess COVID-19 deaths' globally since start of pandemic: The Economist Updated: 2021-05-17 13:46:04 KST

According to The Economist magazine, the number of deaths from COVID-19 is not the widely reported three million, but somewhere between seven and 13 million.
It says its modelling shows that the official global death toll represents, at best, under half the real number, and at worst, about a quarter.
The official number of deaths in Africa, for one, it says, are significantly underestimated, since it doesn't include those who died at home.
The model is based on excess deaths, which is the difference between observed numbers of deaths and the usual or expected numbers.
