More than 100 Israelis have died since the start of the coronavirus crisis. The Jerusalem Post breaks down who is at greatest risk of death and how the country measures up to the rest of the world.
According to data provided by the Health Ministry on Saturday night regarding the first 96 people who died, 54% of them are male and 46% are female. The death rate by sex (number of deaths / number of cases) is quite low: less than 0.5% (50 per 10,000) of total deaths for both males and females.
In comparison to data provided by Worldometer – one of the leading websites for coronavirus statistics, which takes data from the World Health Organization – the death rate worldwide is 2.8% for males and 1.7% for females.
The site notes that among the reasons for this is the large number of Chinese who died and that smoking in China is much more prevalent among males.
WHO reported that smokers are likely to be more vulnerable to coronavirus and may also already have lung disease or reduced lung capacity, which would greatly increase risk of serious illness.
The oldest person to die from coronavirus in Israel was 98. The youngest was 37. The average age is 81.
When looking at the collective: Less than 4% of Israelis who died from coronavirus were under the age of 60; 13% were between 60 and 69; 27% were between 70 and 79; and almost 56% were over the age of 80.
Although Worldometer does not provide comparable statistics, as of March 4, Italy’s national health institute found that the average age of patients who died from COVID-19 was 81. At the time, there had only been two deaths of people under the age of 50.
Chinese data provided by MedRxiv and calibrated by Vox in a chart entitled “estimated case fatality risk in Hubei, China, January to February 2020,” shows that people over the age of 80 had an 18% chance of dying from coronavirus; people between the ages of 70 to 79 had a 9.8% chance; those between 60 and 69 had a 4.6% chance; and the rest under the age of 59 had less than a 3% chance of dying.

Jerusalem has the most coronavirus deaths in Israel, accounting for 26%. However, people have died from 34 different Israelis cities. The next three top cities for coronavirus deaths are Bat Yam (8%), Bnei Brak (7%) and Tel Aviv (5%).
