Under the direction of Prof. Dr. Dr. Tobias Kurth, Marco Piccininni and Jessica Rohmann from the Institute of Public Health, in collaboration with colleagues in Italy, analysed data on total mortality in a community in Lombardy in spring 2020. They found that the mortality rate was significantly higher than in previous years, but only about half of it was due to proven COVID-19 diseases. The study has been published by the BMJ.
