IS compiled information on Finnish corona deaths.
He is dead in Finland crowned a total of 817 people. The chapter is from the Department of Health and Welfare and describes Friday’s data.
Of the dead, 540 had reached the age of 80. There were 195 in the seventies, 62 in the sixties, and 28 in the fifties.
There were less than 10 in their forties and thirties.
Deaths of the Elderly seem to have turned into a decline. Since the end of January, the proportion of people aged 80 and over has fallen from less than 70 per cent to around 50 per cent.
It is probably due to vaccinations and the fact that the disease has no longer spread in the same way in nursing homes.
At the same time, the proportion of people aged 70-79 has risen from around 25% to almost 40%.
The proportion of people under the age of 70 is now just over 10 per cent.
Infections are now most prevalent among 20-40 year olds. The proportion of infections among parents, especially those over 60, has been lower this year than before.
Men 51 percent of deaths and 49 percent of women. The difference is small, although the disease is more severe on average for men.
Men have been hospitalized and in intensive care more often than women, and their treatment has lasted longer.
The uniformity of the percentages is explained by the fact that the median age of the dead is 83 years. That means half of the dead were under 83 and half older.

More than 95 percent of those who died had at least one underlying disease. Typical of these are diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
The worst day of the epidemic in Finland was April 20, 2020. At that time, 19 people died, more than on any other single day.
Coronavirus causes a special disease because the spectrum of the disease picture is wide.
– Terribly extensive, says Chief Physician Asko Järvinen
The range of both symptoms and severity of the disease is wide.
A large proportion get the disease completely asymptomatic and don’t even know they’re sick. According to Järvinen, there are perhaps three out of ten infected people, according to some estimates, as many as four out of ten.
The disease spreads because people infect the virus unknowingly.
The majority of symptoms are mild, but about one in five disease is severe. The biggest risk factor is age.
Children do not get seriously ill at all, and young adults very rarely need hospital treatment. No deaths have been reported in children and adolescents.
However, even after the age of 50, and even more clearly at the age of 60, the risk of serious illness begins to rise sharply. Likewise, mortality.
