So the US death toll is high because of high median age, while the Japan death toll is very low, despite the high median age,   The only mystery revealed here is that the guy wanted his 5 mi

Aaaargh, it's 'im!   This time he's doing no more than quoting well-known statistics and theories. Hardly unravelling a mystery is it?

Well, that's interesting to see China where the virus emerged from has a very low death rate. Could that be because of a cover up.

The only mystery revealed here is that the guy wanted his 5 minutes of fame, but actually has no idea what he's drivelling about, and that wasn't a mystery either

"Look Scooby, it was old man Poovorawan all along!"  "...and I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you meddling Falang"

Average age of death........

no...... he said median age of the population, not of those dying

and you might also take the time to look at what is the difference between average (the mean) and median

It also depends on whether a million are in one hi-rise block or spread over a small town.

Contraction rates would be different as would the death rates.

Where did he explain anything? He just piled up a big mass of differences.

It's not the content that matters it's getting something published that's important.

Japan is a bit of an anomaly here, I expect it's due to some other factor, like adhering strictly to rules that prevent infection.

Japs are 'at home' in a mask - went there mid '80s, was surprised / shocked to see so many in the streets wearing what appeared to be sanitary napkins -

Few days ago I saw a report about these differences of deaths in different countries. They brought it down to different treatments of patients. One of the examples was Switzerland. While there where few deaths within the German speaking population, Italian and French speaking parts had significantly higher numbers. Reason given was that the Italian and French parts where following the medication scheme of these countries, which is an extremly toxic coctail of several drugs subministered in high overdosis and the use of "off label" medicines. + when they put you on a ventilator your chances to die rise by 50%. Same with Portugal and Spain. One follows the scheme, other one doesn't and it refleccts in numbers. They ironically asked if the virus in Switzerland was racist

Statistics with the virus are hard to be accurate about, seems some countries may be under reporting numbers, whilst others are assigning just about any death to covid.
