These statistics are available from the World Health Organization. At the same time, WHO experts stress that young people must not neglect the pandemic.
According to the head of the WHO European office, Hans Kluge, people over 60 died in 95% of deaths from coronaviruses in Europe.
This is reported by the “NPF” referring to “Direct“.
In particular, over 95%, half of the dead were generally over 80, Kluge noted. But these mortality statistics should not reassure people under this age, said the expert:
“The younger generation thinks their virus will not affect. But it is a mistake. Between 10% and 15% of people under the age of 50 who fall ill with COVID-19 have a moderate or severe degree of illness. “
Kluge added that adolescents and people over 20 have serious cases of COVID-19:
“Many of them needed diligent care and treatment, and some, unfortunately, were unable to recover.”
According to a WHO expert, more than 80% of deaths from coronaviruses had at least one concomitant chronic disease. For example, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes and the like.
Recall that we wrote earlier that you are already more than 900,000 patients with coronavirus.
