CDC Data Shows COVID-19 Was Pandemic for the Elderly

Data published recently by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) conclusively shows that COVID-19 primarily infected and caused the deaths of elderly people.

In deaths where the SARS-CoV2 virus was the underlying cause of death, 377,883 people died. The virus took the biggest toll on people over the age of 75 with at least 635.8 deaths per 100,000. Those under the age of 14, school children who were unable to attend school for most of 2020, suffered the least, with 0.2 deaths per 100,000.

“The disruption of children’s education and socialization will haunt us for years to come in terms of earning potential and mental health,” wrote Marilyn Singleton, M.D., J.D on the  Association of American Physicians and Surgeons website. “The central planners punished children for months although the mortality in children from COVID-19 is roughly equivalent to that of influenza year to year.

“How many lives could have been saved if we had protected the vulnerable (the elderly and the sick)?” the Committee to Unleash Prosperity asked on its hotline.

COVID-19, however, was not the biggest killer in 2020. Heart disease took 690,882 lives, followed by cancer at 598,932.  Overall, there were 3,358,814 deaths in 2020, with a little less than one-third of deaths being people age 85 or older.
