Age specific IFR for covid ..

Age specific IFR data for flu proving harder to find, though overall it is 0.1, about ten times higher than covid IFR at age 25 which they state here at 0.01.. and which would obviously drop even lower than that incrementally the younger you go

There are not good numbers available for the flu, and the differing age groupings used by differing statistical sources further complicate comparison.

That said, it is pretty generally acknowledged that, for the college- aged cohort, covid, at worst, poses no greater health risk than flu, and likely poses less, absent particular comorbidities
