Perspective: Gut Check on COVID-19 Risk

Perspective: Gut Check on COVID-19 Risk

Get some perspective folks. Our good friend Phil Kerpen has updated the mortality tables by age – specific age actually! So look up your own risk between you and your peers below.

  • First, find your age on the chart on column #1.
  • Second column: how many people your age have died of COVID-19 since January 2020.
  • Third column: the number of people in the U.S. who are that age.
  • Fourth column: the % of the people that age who have died of COVID.

Notice the number of deaths over the past 2 years for 1 year olds to 4 year olds compared to the regular number of deaths those ages realize:

Lastly, consider the types of deaths which occur at these ratios. We’ve mapped these to mortality risks provided by insurance companies for comparison.

And of course we provide some perspective on age comparisons. The median age of death of a COVID-19 victim is about 80 years old. The risk tables show that for every 20 years below 80 your risk decreases by 10x. So if you are 60 your risk is 10x lower than that of an 80 year old. If you are 40 your risk is 100x lower and if you are 20 your risk is 1000x (ONE THOUSAND!) times lower than an 80 year old.
