Why have 355 excess deaths in children disappeared from EUROMOMO?

By Carl Heneghan, Tom Jefferson, and Jason Oke | Trust the Evidence | September 21, 2022

Two weeks ago, we reported that EUROMOMO (the European mortality monitoring site) data showed an excess of 800 deaths for 2022 in children aged 0 to 14.

An eagle-eyed subscriber alerted us to a strange phenomenon: in the latest report (week 36), 355 excess deaths have seemingly disappeared. Note the numerical change on the vertical axis in the graphs below.

This is what it looked like two weeks ago – just above 800 (see here)

We emailed EUROMOMO asking to explain what happened in the two most recent reporting weeks to cause the “disappearance”.

The answer was, “as you can read in our weekly bulletin and on the webpage for “Graphs and maps”, Spain did not participate in the EuroMOMO output in week 36, due to an adjustment process related with mortality data source”.

We can rest easy then (well, sort of): 355 child excess deaths took place in Spain over a 1-2 week period, and the non-reporting accounted for the dramatic fall in excess mortality. Moreover, such a notable fall caused the readjustment of the Y axis on the graph (note from 800 to 400).

The Spanish government should investigate matters urgently. Or maybe, EUROMOMO data managers should look carefully at what they publish. We are puzzled over how many excess deaths in Europe occur in children. In the meantime, we’ll keep digging.

  2. Why? No one wishes to bring up the elephant in the room. That would be the clot shot!
