25 June 2021
In April, 68,621 people died, 48.5% up from 46,223 in April 2020, setting a three-year record.
COVID-19 contributed the most, with its death toll increasing month by month. It claimed 12,545 lives in April.

In addition to COVID-19, the traditional top causes of death have been cardiovascular diseases, especially heart attacks and blood strokes, with a toll of 39,314; oncology—with 6,169; respiratory diseases—with 2,734 (including 2,313 deaths from flu and pneumonia), and accidents—with 2,164.
|Symptoms, signs, and deviations discovered during clinical and laboratory assessments (outside other categories)||2,060||3.0%|
|Digestive tract diseases||1,982||2.9%|
|Genitourinary system diseases||213||0.3%|
In January—April, 242,671 people died in Ukraine. The figure has shown an increase of 47,384 from January-April 2020 when it was at 195,287. Thus, the mortality level exceeded the last year’s one by 24%.
Mortality data is a crucial tool for decision-makers on the national and community level. Unfortunately, the data from the State Statistics Service of Ukraine is still almost two months behind, so we cannot realistically estimate the mortality rate in Ukraine right now.
