“It isn’t possible to identify from the data whether any or all of these issues are causing the non-COVID-19 excess deaths. We would like to see further investigation into the possible causes to try to answer this question.”

According to daily surveillance reports from State and Territory health departments, there were around 12,900 COVID-19 deaths in the first nine months of 2022. The number of deaths in the month of September 2022 was considerably lower than for July and August.
