Counting the cost of COVID-19 and what to do about it

A great piece of writing at this link. It highlights both the global total of excess deaths and what to do about the pandemic. Between 7m and 10m more deaths have occurred than the world would have expected based on past trends. This is likely to be a truer total toll (so far) from the pandemic than official figures for deaths from COVID-19. That is because many deaths occur without a formal diagnosis and are therefore not recorded as such - especially in poorer countries. It also highlights that the countries hit earliest were those with high levels of international travel (which fed some conspiracy theorists) but has now spread across the poorer (and less connected) world, where it will kill many more people.
