Are the USA sacrificing the young in an attempt to protect the old?
Since COVID-19 began, all-cause mortality for over-64 year-olds in the USA has been sharply seasonal, while it’s been elevated independently of COVID-prevalence for under-45s. What has been causing the season-independent rise in under-45 mortality?Are the USA sacrificing the young and middle-aged in an attempt to protect the old?
Update: A similar pattern of increased under-45 mortality has been found in Canada. Medical errors (iatrogenic harm) may be the culprit. A newer analysis shows significantly lower excess mortality in some states than others.
