Question

COVID-19 Mortality

  • How long does the entire process take to obtain ICD-10 coding of causes of death from death certificates?
  • Do you already have access to information (complete or partial) on COVID-19 as cause of death from death certificates? Have the death certificates now been integrated in the COVID-19 mortality statistics?
  • Are death certificates completed by the physician in electronic or paper format? If completed electronically, what location of death do they cover (ex. hospital only?) and what is the coverage in relation to all deaths?
  • Are there any COVID-19 mortality reports you can share, or reports of excess mortality during the COVID-19 crisis?
