Age of Coronavirus Deaths
We are collecting and analyzing the data from all US States. In the meantime, below we show the data provided by New York City Health as of May 13, 2020:

The table is old, over a year old, but good luck finding a more up to date table with the same classes of data. Cross referencing with the more recent links given, the proportions of deaths per age groups don’t seem to have changed greatly. Will Delta change that? Don’t know, link if you have good data.
What does it mean? It means those aged 18 – 44 with no comorbidities made up 17 out of 15230 deaths recorded from Covid. Or 0.11% of deaths. IF this is still roughly true, given the relative sizes of each age cohort within the population, and IF that English nursey person who does the covid updates on YouTube is correct when he repeats that herd immunity is now impossible, then what the hell are we doing vaccinating any healthy person under 50!???
Tell me if there is something they are seeing that I’m not. Really, I’m curious as to what the logic is here.
