Howie Carr tells readers about Coronavirus numbers in Mass:
Look at the Friday numbers. The average age of the dead remains 82. Among those over 80, the death rate per 100,000 is 1,009. For those in their 70s the rate is 224; for those in their 60s, 56.
And so on — it’s all right there on the charts. For people in their 30s, the death rate is 2 per 100,000. For people under 30, the death rate is zero. Zero.
Yet the lockdown continues. The state’s economy has been destroyed.
According to the chart, of the 4,702 dead in Massachusetts, 2,942 were more than 80 years old, and another 1,073 were between 70 and 79.
No one’s saying that all these deaths among the elderly aren’t a problem, even if a vast majority of the dead also had one or more underlying medical conditions as well.
