Risk of death in different age groups with and without underlying issues

In the last week or so, someone posted a summary of death rates in different age groups for people with and without underlying conditions. Foolishly, I neglected to bookmark it or ask where the data came from.

If that was you, would you be kind enough to repost them here?

I am currently wfh, but if lockdown is lifted it is likely that at least some contact will be resumed. And in my age bracket (mid 50's), the death rate jumped to nearly 25% with underlying conditions (which I have).

My team had a discussion about furloughing one of us at the beginning, but it didn't go anywhere because we are office holders not employees. I've just discovered that the guidelines have been changed and we would be eligible, because we are paid via PAYE. So one way out of my current anxiety would be the assurance that, even if lockdown were lifted, I could be furloughed and stay safe.

Watch John Campbell's YT videos if you haven't already and also refer to Office of National Statistics. X

Furlough is only until the end of June, the risk will still be there in July so not sure furlough is your answer

I do watch John Campbell, but it wasn’t there that I saw it. I’ll have a furtive on the ONS site, but I was hoping someone could just say “here” it is.

Furlough may yet be extended.... maybe just for vulnerable groups. Or I could talk to my team about needing to limit contact as much as possible. Not ideal, though.
