​FOI Reference: FOI/2022/3663

I am writing to request documentation of the total number of deaths FROM
covid-19 disease with NO other attributes/NO other underlying cause from
the dates of March 2020-present (January 20th. 2022). I am requesting
these numbers for both Canada, and Worldwide?

Our response:

​Thank you for your enquiry

We are responsible for and hold mortality data for England and Wales, this
is driven by information collected from the death certificate at death
registration. National Records Scotland (NRS) and Northern Ireland
Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA) are responsible for statistics
pertaining to Scotland and Northern Ireland. They can be contacted
at [1][email address] and [2][email address] respectively.  We do
not hold data for worldwide COVID-19 statistics.

For statistics relating to Canada, you may wish to view the [3]StatCan
website, and get in touch with them if you have any queries regarding
their data.

For worldwide health statistics, the [4]World Health Organisation
(WHO) website may be of use to you.

With regards to our England and Wales mortality data, please see the
following information:

Health conditions are recorded on the death certificate only if the
certifying doctor or coroner believed they made some contribution to the
death, direct or indirect. The death certificate does not include all
health conditions from which the deceased might have suffered if they were
not considered relevant.

The death certificate ([5]Annex A (PDF, 224KB)) used in England and Wales
is compatible with that recommended by WHO. It is set out in two parts.
Part I gives the condition or sequence of conditions leading directly to
death, while Part II gives details of any associated conditions that
contributed to the death but are not part of the causal sequence.

We recommend using our pre-existing conditions methodology to answer this
question as it removes any conditions caused by the underlying cause of
death.

Please see the following previously published FOI which provides our data
on this topic: [6]Deaths due to COVID-19 in the UK with no pre-existing
conditions by age from March 2020 to January 2022 - Office for National
Statistics.

If you would like to discuss your query further, please feel free to
contact [7][email address].
