Interesting COVID Fatality Stats From Texas
« on: July 08, 2020, 06:32:29 AM »
As I said yesterday, more younger people are getting sick in Texas as time goes on. I expect that some of this is because people my age are more likely to take social distancing and mask wearing seriously, but that's a guess.

The other thing that really jumps out at at me when I look at the numbers over time, is the way the mortality numbers stair-step as you get into the older groups.

Starting at age 50, your chance of dying of COVID-19 (if you become infected)  TRIPLES over the 40-50 age group....and it stays about the same until you get above the 80 year threshold, where it more than triples again.

As time goes on, it has also become clear that men ARE significantly more at risk to die from COVID than are women, 58% to 42%.

What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.

It's why some call Covid-19 the "boomer remover."
"...reprehensible lying communist..."
