HOW HAS THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC AFFECTED MORTALITY AND MORBIDITY RISKS?

COVID-19 has touched every facet of our society and claims have been received from Discovery Life clients of all profiles. However, clear trends have emerged over the last year relating to gender, age and occupation which influence the number and severity of COVID-19 claims.

While the absolute increase in mortality rates is greatest for older clients, there have been claims across the age spectrum. However, the relative increase in mortality rates for infected clients is highest in the 40-60 age band where the mortality risk is over 10 times higher after a COVID-19 infection is confirmed.

Where clients are vaccinated, the COVID-19-specific risk is, on average, reduced by approximately 95%. For this reason, Discovery Life is looking to encourage and assist our current and future clients to get vaccinated.
