A large study of those infected with Covid-19 in Britain reveals that people under the age of 80 are hundreds of times less likely to die of COVID-19 than those in the older (80+) age group. The study was published in the science magazine, Nature.
The Daily Wire writes (note the last line):
The study revealed a “jaw-dropping” connection between one’s chances of dying from the disease and their age, Goldacre said. People over age 80 are at least 20 times more likely to die from the disease than someone aged 50-59. The risk of dying from the coronavirus for adults under the age of 40 is close to zero.
