The scientists also looked at the age distribution of COVID-19 mortality and the basic reproduction number. They found that the age distribution was quite similar in all these countries while the basic reproduction was different. The researchers wrote in their paper: "Our study revealed that if the mortality rate or the fraction of symptomatic infections among all COVID-19 cases does not depend on age, then unrealistically different age-dependencies of susceptibilities against COVID-19 infections between Italy, Japan, and Spain are required to explain the similar age distribution of mortality but different basic reproduction numbers (R0)."
