COVID Infection Fatality Rate (IFR) for under 70s confirmed at 0.1%.
If the very elderly had been protected and everyone else had carried on normally, COVID would have been defeated naturally within two months. Who knew?
To 4 decimal places, the age-stratified risk of death IF infected in the first place:
0-19 years = ZERO
20-29 years = ZERO
30-39 years = 0.01%
40-49 years = 0.04%
50-59 years = 0.13%
60-69 years = 0.50%
0-69 years = 0.10%
94% of the global population is aged under 70.
These estimates are virtually unchanged from those made in early 2020. So, yeah, we all knew. But only a few did anything about it.
And this is even with the denial of life-saving early treatment. #CanYouSeeItYet?
The source did not publish the IFR beyond 70 years old so I modelled it using a 5-order polynomial:
Conversely, people also like to see this expressed as “survival” rate, i.e. 1 minus the IFR:
