A friend suggested this to me as a way of visualising COVID-19 risk for the United States. The red bars in the chart above show the expected death rates for different age groups over the whole pandemic period up to August 2020 (combining the projected total deaths from IHME with the age breakdown from CDC). For comparison, the blue bars show the expected deaths from other causes over an ordinary 9-day period (using data from CDC). For every age group, the risk of dying from COVID-19 during the pandemic is less than 9 days worth of ordinary risk, because 7,700 people die in the United States on an average day (of course, the COVID-19 risk would be somewhat higher without current social distancing measures).
For children and young people aged 0–24, the risk is less than 1 day worth of ordinary risk. This is clearer if we re-plot the chart on a logarithmic scale:
Update: I have updated the charts above to match the new IHME projections dated 16 April.
