As of October 2020, there are >1 million documented deaths with COVID‐19. Excess deaths can be caused by both COVID‐19 and the measures taken. COVID‐19 shows extremely strong risk stratification across age, socioeconomic factors, and clinical factors. Calculation of years‐of‐life‐lost from COVID‐19 is methodologically challenging and can yield misleading over‐estimates. Many early deaths may have been due to suboptimal management, malfunctional health systems, hydroxychloroquine, sending COVID… Expand

TLDR
An imperative need to put the COVID-19 pandemic into perspective with the overall burden of diseases, as well as the limitations and variance around such estimates, is seen. Expand

Diabetes and COVID-19: Population Impact 18 Months Into the Pandemic
TLDR
The relationship of diabetes to COVID-19-related morbidity and mortality, the predictors of severe adverse outcomes and implications of the overall pandemic, and the current status of and identify needs for epidemiologic studies for the next phase of the pandemic are summarized. Expand
Over- and under-estimation of COVID-19 deaths
TLDR
COVID-19 deaths were apparently under- counted early in the pandemic and continue to be under-counted in several countries, especially in Africa, while over-counting probably currently exists for several other countries,especially those with intensive testing and high sensitization and/or incentives for COVID- 19 diagnoses.

TLDR
On the island of Ireland during the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic, high infection rates in NI increased cases in the neighbouring ROI, and Socioeconomic disadvantage appeared to confer significant additional risk of spread. Expand
Antibiotic resistance during and beyond COVID-19
TLDR
All models—except those envisaging societal collapse—suggest that COVID-19 will be controlled and that hospitals will revert to pre-2020 patterns with a large backlog of non-CO VID-19 patients awaiting treatment, and vaccine failure scenarios, particularly those accepting ‘learning to live with the virus’, favour increased outpatient management ofNon-COVID- 19 infections using oral and long t½ antibiotics.

SARS-CoV-2 re-infection risk in Austria
TLDR
A relatively low re-infection rate of SARS-CoV-2 in Austria is observed, comparable to the highest available estimates on vaccine efficacies. Expand
The infection fatality rate of COVID-19 inferred from seroprevalence data
TLDR
The infection fatality rate of COVID-19 can vary substantially across different locations and this may reflect differences in population age structure and case-mix of infected and deceased patients as well as multiple other factors. Expand

TLDR
A substantial proportion of excess deaths observed during the current COVID-19 pandemic are not attributed to Covid-19 and may represent an excess of deaths due to other causes. Expand
Years of life lost due to the psychosocial consequences of COVID-19 mitigation strategies based on Swiss data
TLDR
The results presented here are likely to underestimate the true impact of the mitigation strategies on YLL, and highlight the need for public health models to expand their scope in order to provide better estimates of the risks and benefits of mitigation. Expand
