The so far puzzling increase in deaths in Spain and Europe in 2022

1.1. EuroMOMO

1.1.1. Data

Attentive observers of the European Mortality Monitoring (EuroMOMO)1 have noted a significant increase in mortality in the 0-14 age group for months, but also in the 15-44 age group mortality is above 2020 and 2021 levels.
The significantly reduced mortality among children during the first year of the pandemic is also striking.2

These phenomena are particularly evident in the graphs of cumulative excess mortality:

For all age groups taken together, the sharp increase in excess mortality at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic is clearly visible, but this quantitative jump is missing in the two youngest age groups; in children 0-14 years there is even a significant reduction in mortality, which continues through most of 2021 and only turns into an increase in mortality towards the end of 2021, which continues virtually unchanged in 2022.

In the 15-44 age group, what is noticeable is that the excess mortality in 2022 is higher than in 2020 and 2021 and that the underlying increase also starts towards the end of 2021.
