I have received the latest statistics on the mortality of persons in Austria.
I have presented here the first 15 weeks each year in the period from 2016 to 2020.
Data for the last three weeks of 2020 are estimates. The statistics were published by the Statistical Office in Austria.
These numbers do not include the cause of death. They apply to all those who died during this period in Austria:

Please note the first five weeks of 2017. 4,454 fatalities due to influenza were calculated in Austria in the 2016/2017 season. In the previous season of 2015/2016 there were 247 of them.

At the end of 2016, the following figures were presented in the document from the Statistical Office of Austria: week 51/2016 – 1.847, week 52/2016 – 2.160.
During the current pandemic of fear, the peak of mortality was reached in the 12th week, i.e. from March 16 to 22, and amounted to 1,827 people.
An interesting article appeared on the 9th of April in the Austrian media (ORF) Less heart attacks, but why? The article is in German.
Probably those who died of a heart attack and had coronavirus antibodies, did not spoil the collapse statistics.
About 8.9 million inhabitants live in Austria. It is about one in a thousand inhabitants of the world.
I also calculated global mortality statistics today. They are placed at the end of the chapter World mortality statistics. It is possible that I am wrong, maybe this virus really is the cause of death?
I looked for such information at the Lancet websites. Unfortunately without success.
