Rapid mortality surveillance generates daily or weekly counts of mortality data by age, sex, date of death, place of death and place of usual residence. This provides a more complete picture of impact, particularly for deaths that may be indirectly related to COVID-19. This also addresses the indirect impact caused by disruptions in healthcare access and supply chains. This tool will help policy-makers compare estimated weekly number of excess deaths related to COVID-19 with pre-pandemic levels.

Stratified random sampling was used to select primary schools (n = 8) in Kuala L...
