Rate of Cases by Age Group
Between 10/27 and 11/09, new COVID-19 diagnoses increased across all age groups. In relative
terms, the largest increase was reported among people aged 80 years and older (+229 percent),
which is extremely worrisome given the increased risk for poor outcomes among this age
group. Currently, the average rate of new diagnoses is highest among 20–29 year-olds (88.4
cases per 100,000 per day), followed by people aged 80 years and older (78.7 cases per 100,000
per day). Average daily diagnoses are currently lowest among children aged 0–9 years (20.2
cases per 100,000 per day), though this may partly reflect a relatively low rate of testing among
this age group.
