Proviser seems to have taken the COVID-19 fight to another level with the launch of a risk calculator that feeds on Office for National Statistics data to calculate the risk of dying based on the age and gender of the user. The new tool considers factors from the data provided by the Office for National Statistics to estimate the likelihood of an individual dying due to complications from COVID-19.
COVID-19 pandemic has continued to ravage the world, directly infecting more than 3.7 million people worldwide. While several countries across the globe seem to have had their fair share of the disease and its effects, the United Kingdom currently ranks as one of the worst-hit areas. Studies have revealed that the dangerous virus is deadlier in persons with underlying health issues. However, Proviser is seemingly putting a number to these assumptions by taking it a bit more scientific with the launch of the “Coronavirus – Risk of Dying Once Infected” tool.
The new tool is the first of its kind that puts the power of information in the hands of the public. The tool is particularly useful to people that want to understand the risk involved in going out to public spaces such as work or even sending their children to school.
The COVID-19 Risk Calculator provides results based on Covid-19 mortality statistic for England & Wales from the Office for National Statistics (ONS), assuming a death rate of 0.5% and taking into consideration cases with mild symptoms and no symptoms.
Some of the assumptions made with the tool include the even spread of COVID-19 through all age groups and between male and female and calculation of figures based on estimates for risk of death ‘with’ COVID-19 rather than death caused by covid-19.
