Coronavirus update, 16 Mar

Coronavirus death rates by age, gender, and other diseases.

The risk of death is clearly co-morbidity related, so worse in patients with heart disease, diabetes, lung disease, or cancer..

My belief is that the age and gender relationships are ‘secondary’ and not real. They simply reflects that the older you are and if you are male, the more likely you are to already have the diseases/conditions that make the virus more severe.

Also important: the lack of/rare incidence in children does NOT mean they are not getting the virus; they are just strong and killing it rather than the other way around.
