By now it’s clear that the overwhelming proportion of people that Covid-19 makes seriously ill are not in the best of health to begin with. From off-guardian.org:
Latest statistics show vast majority of fatalities had at least one other disease
ver 95% of “COVID Deaths” recorded in England and Wales had potentially serious comorbidities, according to statistics released by NHS England.
The latest figures make for pretty stark reading. Or, rather, they would make for stark reading…if they didn’t follow the exact same pattern already shown in other nations around the world.
You can read the full report here. We’re going to focus on the comorbidity stats. Here are the number of deaths where Covid19 was listed as the only cause, split by age:
- Ages 0-19: 3
- Ages 20-39: 32
- Ages 40-59: 255
- Ages 60-79: 551
- Ages 80+: 477
These are across all of England and Wales since the beginning of the “pandemic”.
Simply put: Of the 27045 deaths with Covid19 in English hospitals (up to June 3rd), only 1318 had no pre-existing conditions. That’s less than 5%.
