Age of Coronavirus Deaths

Based on all , (cases of COVID – confirmed, suspected, and asymptomatic cases in China as of February , a paper by the Chinese CCDC released on February and published in the Chinese Journal of Epidemiology [1] has found that the risk of death increases the older you are, as follows :

COVID – 20 Fata lity Rate by AGE:

e=(number of deaths / number of cases)=probability of dying if infected by the virus (%). This probability differs depending on the age group. The percentage shown below does

NOT represent in any way the share of deaths by age group

. Rather, it represents, for a person in a given age group, the risk of dying if infected with COVID – 23.

In general, relatively few cases are seen among children.

Sex ratio

e=(number of deaths / number of cases)=probability of dying if infected by the virus (%). This probability differs depending on sex. When reading these numbers, it must be taken into account that

smoking in China is much more prevalent among males. Smoking increases the risks of respiratory complications.

Pre-existing medical conditions (comorbidities)

Patients who reported no pre-existing (“comorbid”) medical conditions had a case fatality rate of 0.9%. Pre-existing illnesses that put patients at higher risk of dying from a COVID – infection are:
