At Risk.

The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting the global population in drastic ways. In many countries, older people are facing the most threats and challenges at this time. Although all age groups are at risk of contracting COVID-19, older people face significant risk of developing severe illness if they contract the disease due to physiological changes that come with ageing and potential underlying health conditions.

 

“Although the elderly are by far at the highest risk of dying due to COVID-19, the risk in middle age is still high.

 

The Case Fatality Rate (CFT) in the uk is currently 3.6%

for every 1000 reported cases 36 people die.
