Excess Deaths in the US Should be Calculated Based on Pre-Pandemic Levels

In the US, just like here in the UK, there’s this tendency to assume pandemics are the “normal” and therefore averages over pandemic years become a “baseline” in the calculation of excess deaths. This page with Weekly Cumulative All-Cause Excess Deaths shows many young people dying, vastly more than expected. As noted earlier today, In the United States, Winter Deaths Increased 28% Between 2016 and This Year (But President Biden Insists Pandemic is Over).

This means nearly 1 million more US deaths per year (compared to pre-pandemic levels). I’m leaving below a screenshot of the US excess deaths for this year, based on the calculation which (in my humble opinion) wrongly factors in 2 years of pandemic, hence low-balling the totals:

US excess deaths

Here in the UK, many young people die too — far more than expected.
