Corrected serious error in mortality report for covid-19!
SIR unfortunately has to inform you that 9/7 found an error in the report covering
30-day mortality for covid-19 cases
The error has given falsely low mortality rates, especially for the month of May. At least two media outlets have reported the incorrect figures as news that covid-19 mortality at IVA has fallen sharply.
The conclusion is still correct, but with accurate figures, the improvement is clearly smaller than previously seen.
The error was due to criteria in the update against the population database and is now corrected. Data is quality controlled during the day. SIR deeply regrets what happened. Our quality controls on processes have failed in this particular case. SIR will do his utmost to ensure that what happened does not happen again!
The portal and report now show accurate values!
