This online Forum will be on the topic of:
“The European Mortality Monitoring System”
After the Swine flu pandemic of 2009/2010, Europeans realized how centralized collection of mortality data can save lives. Over the next five years, the European Mortality Monitoring system was organized and funded by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control. Twenty-three countries in Europe now submit mortality data daily to the organization, which they publish on the website EuroMoMo.eu. Health professionals around the world use the data to detect and monitor epidemics.
In this talk, Humanist Community member Jeff Justice will show you how to use EuroMoMo and compare it to our CDC website. We will use the data to compare how the COVID-19 epidemic has played out in the various European countries.
