Average Age of Coronavirus Deaths in Florida is 79

As of March 21st, information from the Florida Department of Health indicates that 12 people have died from the coronavirus. The Florida Department of Health has also provided various pieces of information for each death.

A chart is provided below.

The average age of those who have died is 79. A recent CDC report indicated that eighty percent of US deaths have been among people 65 and older.

The youngest to die was 68 years-old and the oldest was 96 years-old.

Of the twelve deaths, 8 were men and 4 were women.

Broward County leads with three deaths.

Three of the deaths were related to travel and six had contact with a confirmed case.

Note: The death of a person in Leon County, after being transferred from Georgia, has been removed from Florida numbers. It appears the death is being counted in Georgia.

    The patient who died here is not listed on the chart. Why?
    Because he/she was from Georgia?

    Absent an explanation, the chart’s credibility is questionable.

      This chart was NOT created by TR, it is from the Florida Department of Health as of March 21, 6 PM. I will look into the Leon County death.

      This is accountable for Florida not for Georgia. If is questionable do your own research yourself and go out and interview the sick.

      The person was diagnosed in Georgia, and was transported to Leon County for upgraded medical treatment. Unfortunately, that treatment was not successful and the person died. That person had no interaction with anyone in Leon County except medical personnel, therefore the death was not listed as a Leon County death.

      As much as some would love for this to become Armageddon, the statistics Steve has posted here from DOH paint a much more manageable issue – especially for Leon County. We can only hope it remains that way.

      My question has resulted in another story that tries to explain the disappearing Leon County victim:

    If the person living in Georgia when diagnosed, the death should count for Georgia regardless where they went and passed away.

    What difference does it make? One is too many and you people are bickering about where they were from and where they died? Yes we need to keep as accurate a count as possible of cases and deaths but you need to remember every one of those deaths was someone’s family.Be nicer to each other.with your comments for God’s sake.and don’t ever take for granted you’ll have a tomorrow.

      You realize who you are talking to here, right? Most of the commenting users on this site think the whole thing is a hoax and didn’t start with any compassion except their own greed and owning the libs.

    Whomever said this is a hoax is crazy! I hope you are proud of yourself as people around us die. Facts are facts, and if you are a Republican you wouldn’t know much about facts. I just pray that this crisis passes and everyone csn get back to business as normal.

    That information is incorrect that she was tested and diagnosed in Georgia. She was transferred from a hospital in Georgia that had known cases, and according to the initial article “Once she got to Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare, staff immediately screened her and tested her for the coronavirus, Derzypolski said.” I understand she is from Georgia, however, she was screened here and sadly passed away at TMH, and thus, she should count towards Florida numbers. I would think that this would also mean that anyone else from Georgia (there are a lot of people from Georgia who work here, etc.) that tests positive here will probably not be counted in Florida numbers. Hopefully I’m wrong.

    Almost entirely very elderly people with pre-existing, serious health problems. The public health bureaucracy therefore hasn’t the foggiest idea of what role, if any, the corona cold virus played in these deaths, which are miniscule in number compared to seasonal flu deaths.
