Overall, all-cause mortality has been within the normal range for most of the reporting countries during the past weeks. Switzerland and Spain have seen an excess in mortality among elderly (65+ years of age) in July 2015, as well as Belgium and France in the first week of July, concurrent with heat-waves in these areas.

Data from 16 countries or regions* was received, of these 15** were included in the pooled analyses.

Excess mortality levels in most recent weeks may be difficult to interpret because adjustment for delayed registrations may be imprecise. Further, results of pooled analyses may vary depending on which countries were included in the weekly analyses.

Pooled analyses are adjusted for variation between the included countries and for differences in the local delay in reporting.

*Belgium, Denmark, England (UK), Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, the Netherlands, Northern Ireland (UK), Norway, Portugal, Scotland (UK), Spain, Switzerland, and Wales (UK).
**Not included in the pooled analyses: Northern Ireland (UK).
