How The Average Age of Mortality from Covid is 81.5

Last Updated on May 7, 2022 by Shaun Snapp

Executive Summary

  • The average age of death from covid is far older than almost anyone knows.
  • Why has this statistic been hidden from view?


The reporting of covid deaths has been irresponsible in that covid have been reported as the primary cause of death. And a major reason has been that the average age of death has not been reported.

How Have Covid Deaths Been Reported?

This is explained well at the end of the following video, which covers the reporting of the death of Colin Powell.

In the coverage of the death of Colin Powell, covid was the only reported reason for his death. As explained in this video, essential factors leading to Powell’s death are the following.

  • Powell was 84 years old. The average US male currently lives to 79 years of age.
  • Powell had lethal blood cancer.
  • Powell had Parkinson’s.
  • Powell was fully vaccinated. (Why did the media leave this point out — if he had not been vaccinated, think of the likelihood that this would not have been mentioned)

What Who is Dying From Covid Tells Us

I performed this analysis back in April of 2020, and this analysis is published in the article What Who is Dying from the Coronavirus Tells Us. However, governments or even the public have been reluctant to perform this type of analysis throughout the pandemic instead of generalizing the coronavirus deaths to “everyone.” The media jumped on cases where the person was supposedly healthy as evidence that “anyone can die of coronavirus” and stigmatized people that noticed the strong correlation between those already sick with coronavirus deaths as irresponsible.

This same phenomenon occurred during the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s. The data showed that the virus was highly concentrated in the male gay community. However, instead of focusing on these groups with the highest incidence, the health authorities scared everyone who was not at much risk for AIDS.

Similarly, covid is only lethal to a selection population, and it is not only the elderly but the obese and those with serious pre-existing conditions. That is not false, and it is inaccurate to assert the opposite. NBC categorizes what is demonstrable as misinformation. Let us review some of this “misinformation.”

Mortality by Age Cohort

Is this table misinformation? According to NBC, the answer is yes, and it’s a table of mortality by age cohort. However, according to NBC, it is irresponsible of me to show this table. 

This graphic is from The Heritage Foundation.

Similar information is shown but as a histogram, with the source being the CDC. This is an easy histogram to read, and it shows the bulk of people dying with covid is 65 and up (we have to catch ourselves and not declare “of” covid.) It is basically impossible to say if a person dies of covid, only that they had covid (or should we say may have had covid) that is they tested positive with the highly inaccurate PCR test that was never designed to be used for diagnosis as we cover in the article Understanding The PCR Test and How There Was Never a Reliable Test for Covid.  

Other articles that cover the falsity of PCR tests for covid are found in our other articles on the topic.

Looking at the histogram which shows total number of deaths with covid. It appears that roughly 20% of the total deaths of those with covid were for all those below 65 years of age.

The average age of death with covid was 86 in Australia, as can be viewed at this PDF.

What is the Average Age of a Person Who Dies from Covid In The US?

The following quote roughly matches the table I included above.

The average person who dies from COVID is over 80 years old and has multiple underlying health conditions. In other words, their life expectancy is short, the average person who died in the 1918 pandemic was in their late 20s. So each death in the 1918 pandemic actually meant around 50 years more of life loss per person than each death in the COVID pandemic. Why Most of What You Know About Covid is Wrong

Hmmm….but again, isn’t this also misinformation, according to NBC.

It is curious how the establishment media appear to have a bias against analysis.

A big part of how the establishment media seems to see its role is telling its audience what to look at and what it cannot look at. Just as an aside, I do not recognize the authority of the establishment media to tell me what is off-limits to look at or what I cannot think.

And you shouldn’t either.

Now, if directly asked, they would most likely deny this assumed role. However, the way many of their articles are written does appear to contain this assumption.

The following quote describes the degree of censorship that has been used and is desired by those benefiting from the pandemic.

In a November 9, 2021, interview with Atlantic Council CEO Frederick Kempe, Pfizer chairman and CEO Albert Bourla claimed “a small part of professionals” intentionally circulate “misinformation … so that they will mislead those that have concerns.” Such medical professionals are not just bad people, Bourla said, “they’re criminals, because they have literally cost millions of lives” – Verve Times

It’s unclear if Bourla is asking for information that contradicts the government to prosecute Pfizer. It is also not clear if Bourla also would like anyone who disagrees with other Pfizer products to be criminal.

What is the Average Age of a Person Who Dies from Covid In The UK?

This is explained in the following quotation.

Data show COVID-19 deaths have been wildly exaggerated by counting people who died from other conditions but had a positive COVID test within 28 days of their death

U.K. data released in response to a Freedom of Information Act request show that the number of deaths between January 2020 and the end of September 2021 in England and Wales, where COVID-19 was the sole cause of death, was just 17,371 — not 137,133 as reported

Of the 17,371 people who had COVID-19 as the sole cause of death, 13,597 were 65 or older. The average age of death in the U.K. from COVID in 2021 was 82.5 years – Ragnar Forseti at Substack

Therefore, it is essentially the same as it is in the US.

What Such A High Average Age Means

Some people die of covid far younger than 81.5 or 82.5 or 86. However, like the aged, they have weak immune systems. Many are obese. However, for every much younger person that dies, for the average to be 81.5, this means many more people above 81.5 or 82.5 must die.

Let us take an example to show why this is the case.

Here is a hypothetical list of deaths by age. I will add deaths to this original listing, and each time I add to it, the new values will be in green. 

Example #1: Average With All Old People

  • Average(80, 84, 79, 84, 75, 88)  = 81.66

Now watch what happens when we put in a single person who is significantly younger.

Example #2: Average With One Younger Person Added

  • Average(80, 84, 79, 84, 75, 88, 48)  = 76.85

Now observe how many people at 85 years of age must be added to put the average back to 81.5.

Example #3: Adding Old People Until The Average Returns Close to the Current Average Killed By Covid

  • Average(80 + 84 + 79 + 84 + 75 + 88 + 48 + 85 + 85 + 85 + 85 + 85 + 85 + 85 + 85 + 85)  = 81.43

So 81.43 is just about the average we were shooting for.

Observe that we had to add nine 85-year-old people to bring the average back into line with the actual average mortality from covid.

That tells you that for all of the deaths that were claimed to be from younger people, the reality is that the average proves that covid primarily kills the very old. The average age of mortality is so old, that the average number of years lost due to covid is low. This also means that the younger people who died from covid were reported without the context of how rare those deaths were.

The Virus Can Kill Anyone?

The average mortality age of covid entirely undermines the narrative of a disease that can kill anyone. This is why communicating this average is considered misinformation by the establishment media, health authorities, and pharmaceutical companies. The reality is that the vast majority of the population never needed a vaccine.

How Weak is Covid?

Covid is so weak that the people in the population with better immune systems will not even create antibodies when infected with covid, as their innate immune system will kill the virus without marshaling the adaptive immune system. The vaccines could have been dispensed with, and health authorities could have focused on improving the immune system of the general population. Still, they dispensed with discussing the natural immunity, and put 100% of their energy into convincing people to get vaccinated, as is covered in the article A Comparison of How Much Effort the CDC Puts Into Immunity Versus Vaccines.

How little of a concern the CDC has in improving general immunity? Well, there is more information at our website than there is at the CDC’s website, which has a yearly budget of roughly $9 billion per year.

On the Other Side of the Age Spectrum: Children Are Barely Affected by Covid

Significant media entities aggressively critiqued a study that described that vaxxed elderly were at higher risk than un-vaxxed children. This is peculiar because pharmaceuticals that make billions of dollars from their vaccines would want to be published. It is impossible to determine any difference between the interests of pharma and the establishment media. 

Deaths from Covid from the UK

This video describes the far lower deaths once co-morbidities are removed. Furthermore, the average age was 81.5 years old. 

The issue with the CDC’s falsification of the mortality rate pre and post covid I cover in Did The US Mortality Rate Increase in 2020 and 2021?


The establishment media or health authorities never presented the average age of death from covid because it would have let the air out of the covid balloon that the elites put so much effort into blowing up.

Even bringing up the average age of mortality from covid is considered misinformation by the powers that be, as they have come to categorize all information that undercuts their false narrative as misinformation. This is covered in the article How Elites Use the Term Misinformation as a Form of Censorship.

Controlling the information about covid is a primary way the pandemic was manufactured, which is covered in the article Pandemic In A Box: The Specific Steps Used to Create the Covid Pandemic.
