Risk of death from COVID-19 and age

By Kevin Roche

Another chart compiled from the CDC routine data, showing alleged CV-19 deaths by age, compared to all deaths for the age group. Note that over 10,000 infants have died in the US so far this year. They are dying far more frequently from causes other than CV-19, even under the CDC’s very broad “with CV” guidelines. Look at the broader age band, 0 to 17, typical school age children and younger, 88 have died with CV-19, and from other data we know that every one of those likely has a serious underlying illness. 18,543 have died of other causes. What is the bigger risk to these children–CV-19 or many other causes. Also note that 80% of all CV-19 deaths have occurred to people 65 and over.
