When covid-19 deaths are analysed by age, America is an outlier
American casualties tend to be younger than European ones, which has grim implications

Three points on this article:
1) Americans have a lot of underlining medical conditions particularly diabetes & obesity that make them more vulnerable.
2) Look closely at the first graph you posted. Where do they get the "to many to soon" headline from? The slope of US deaths appears to be less steep then that for the major European country's. This indicates that we did a better job of mitigation and flattening the curve.
3) Funny how they claim that a small difference in the number of younger Americans dying with covid will lead to "grim implications". I would suggest that a far greater # of deaths among young Americans will be caused by the shut down. This will have far worse implications for our future. One of the key arguments AGAINST shutting down is the terrible toll it will take on younger Americans.
