Deaths among working age climbed dramatically in last 2 years.

Non-COVID related increased also, but the percentages are lower. Crowding out the normal access for diagnostics and emergencies like stroke and heart attacks seems to add to the mix

Working age adults accounted for 40% of COVID deaths in 3rd quarter of 2021 according to the article. Surprising to me.

  1. I didn’t see where it said what percent of cases were in that age group, but I would guess that the 40% death figure would reflect about 95% of cases. The old people who didn’t vaccinate are largely already dead now.

    I would avoid making too many assumptions without all the data.


  2. I’m reminded of another story here in the Forum:

    Indiana life insurance CEO says deaths are up 40% among people ages 18-64

    The Indiana story was surprising because there you could rule out Covid-19 as the direct cause of the actuarial death surge. Covid-19 deaths in Indiana had declined significantly.

    Virginia’s death surge (17%) appears be a little less than half of Indiana’s (40%), but there is no decline in Covid-19 death claims in Virginia, according to the Pilot.

    To the extent the two states are comparable, we should perhaps wonder why Covid-19 deaths went down in Indiana, but not in Virginia.
