A 10% rise in deaths in Europe from January to November last year compared with the same period of 2016-2019 "shows the dramatic consequences" of the COVID-19 pandemic, EU economy commissioner Paolo Gentiloni tweeted on Friday.

Gentiloni was reacting to figures released on Friday by the EU statistics agency Eurostat.

"Over 400 000 more deaths (+10%) occurred in the EU between January and November 2020 compared with the same period in 2016-2019," read a tweet from Eurostat.

"To be more precise: Excess mortality was high especially in spring and autumn, reaching its maximum in November," read another Eurostat tweet.
