Most of the people who died at the age of 65, and most of them of concomitant diseases. But the researchers have obtained more complete data on racial, ethnic, and basic conditions for a subset of about 10 000 people. Most of these deaths occurred in new York, new Jersey and Washington state, three areas victims at the dawn of the pandemic.
The study revealed significant differences in the age at which people from different racial and ethnic groups died from covid-19. Among white men, the average age was 81, while for Hispanics it was 71, and all non-white, non-Hispanic men was 72.
The researchers found that the virus led to a much steeper burden on people of color who were younger than 65. About 35 percent of Hispanic people who died from covid-19 was under the age of 65 years, and about 29.5 percent non-white, non-Latinos of the victims were under the age of 65 years. Compared to 13.2 percent of deaths among white people were younger than 65.
The percentage of deaths among The Spaniard and non-white population exceeded their representation in the U.S. population. This implies that the rate of transmission of coronavirus is higher among younger members of these groups than among their white counterparts and may reflect their greater presence in the frontline jobs that don’t allow them to work from home. It may also be assumed that they are more likely to live in crowded or multigenerational home where it is difficult to maintain social distancing.
Power on inequalities in health say, there are racial differences from the socio-structural inequalities that leave certain racial and ethnic groups around the world are extremely vulnerable to the devastating effects of coronavirus. These disparities helped fuel protests for racial justice which swept the nation.
Among those older than 65 years died from covid-19, nearly 41% were white and non-Hispanic, 21% were Hispanic and 32% were nonwhite and non-Hispanic.
The CDC report found that diabetes was common among those who are younger than 65 years died. About half of all deaths of people under the age of 65 years, people with diabetes. Overall, 35 percent of patients below the age of 65 years, hospitalized with covid-19 had diabetes.
The CDC recently expanded its warning about groups at risk of severe complications from covid-19. Officials said that even young people who are obese or have other illnesses, such as diabetes, may become severely ill if they become infected with this virus.
The CDC study last month found that people with other underlying medical conditions, such as heart disease and diabetes was hospitalized six times more often in otherwise healthy people infected with the coronavirus during the first four months of the pandemic, and they died 12 times more often.
In a report published Friday, nearly 1 in 12 deaths of people before age 65 took place at home or in the emergency Department, suggesting that they may not have access to health care, can delay seeking medical attention or may have been delays in obtaining a diagnosis.
