Yesterday, the CDC released a report of the fatality outcomes of COVID-19. The findings were that fatality was highest in persons aged ≥85.
- ≥85: 10-27%
- 65-84: 3-11%
- 55-64: 1-3%
- 20-54: <1%
- <20: none
This confirms what China experienced.
This leaves the question: why are we quarantining the entire population and hurting everyone when those ≥65 are the ones who need to be quarantined.
That’s the approach that the UK and Switzerland and Israel are taking.
