27 March 2020 – Implications of the Age Profile of the Novel Coronavirus – a Study by Harvard

From what I can tell kids up to 20 are almost completely unaffected.  To me this is strange.  It’s usually the children who are MOST affected or at least CONTRACTED.  They recover easier, but we have all heard the expression “snot nosed kids.” There’s a reason. They contract colds and flu’s pretty readily.  And thats why I find this virus so strange.  See the charts.  Unless kids are not being tested.  Could that be the reason?







The role of children in the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 remains unclear, and existing data are yet to provide a consistent explanation for the markedly skewed age distribution of COVID-19 cases. Whereas early data from symptomatic case confirmations suggested a lack of disease in children, subsequent contact tracing studies have found that children are likely to be infected. Governments are now facing immense pressure to weigh the public health benefit of interventions such as school closure against the significant economic disruption they impose. To motivate the discussion of age-stratified social distancing measures, we discuss potential biological mechanisms by which a skewed age distribution of cases may be generated and show through mathematical modelling how different age-targeted interventions are likely to affect the epidemic final size. We propose that identifying age-dependent transmissibility, in addition to susceptibility, will be essential to understand which social distancing measures are likely to be the most impactful going forward.

We are more than just ourselves. We carry the DNA and the history of generations that came before. I’m a mom and a daughter. I’m a refugee. My mother is the only child that survived WWII in her family. She and my grandmother were the only ones left. My fathers family were forced to disown him, in writing, when we left Ukraine (former USSR.) They were going to shoot for California. They got as far and NY. I grew up in Queens. I left for the ARMY at the ripe old age of 23. Spent some time in VA and then on to TX. I live in TX. I am married to a wonderful man. I have a few kids. I AM JEWISH. I AM VERY CONSERVATIVE in my politics. I have a job that I go to EVERY DAY – 8-5, 5 days a week. My Hebrew name is Judith. Yihoodit. Baruch Hashem!
