Coronavirus death rate in Italy as of 2021, by age group

The spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Italy has hit every age group uniformly and claimed more than 79 thousand lives since it entered the country. As the chart shows, however, mortality rate appeared to be much higher for the elderly patient. In fact, for people between 80 and 89 years of age, the fatality rate was 19.8 percent. For patients older than 90 years this figure increased to 24.9 percent. On the other hand, the death rate for individuals below 60 years of age was well below one percent. Overall, the mortality rate of coronavirus in Italy reached 3.5 percent, higher than that registered in most countries.

Since the first case was detected at the end of January in Italy, coronavirus has been spreading fast. As of January 15, 2021, the authorities reported more than 2.3 million cases in the country. The area mostly hit by the virus is the North, in particular the region of Lombardy.
