Over three times the official.

Official statistics on reported Covid-19 deaths provide only a partial picture of the true burden of mortality. While the official Covid-19 death toll was 5.9 million between 1 January 2020 and 31 December 2021, the new study estimates that 18.2 million excess deaths occurred over the same period, suggesting the full impact may have been greater.”


Globally, South Asia (5.3m), north Africa and the Middle East (1.7m) and eastern Europe (1.4m) had the largest number of excess deaths.

In terms of absolute numbers, India had more excess deaths due to Covid-19 than anywhere else – 4.07m – according to the findings. It was followed by the US (1.13m), Russia (1.07m), Mexico (798,000), Brazil (792,000), Indonesia (736,000) and Pakistan (664,000).

At least some of those deaths are likely not from Covid but from other maladies that couldn't be treated properly due to the crush of Covid patients. Just the flu.
