Will there be a massive surge in Mortality from Covid?
In preparation for an inevitable outcome
Reviewing the characteristics of the 1918 flu pandemic which disproportionally affected young adults in the second wave. Is that possible in this current evolving Covid Epidemic for highly vaccinated regions?
In truth, this is an issue for highly vaccinated regions of the world with limited exposure to the original virus. Their immune systems are now skewed towards an ineffective targeting of the Omicron virus, and are therefore unable to neutralise the virus.
"Of the unexplained characteristics of the 1918–19 influenza pandemic, the extreme mortality rate among young adults (W-shaped mortality curve) is the foremost. Lack of a coherent explanation of this and other epidemiologic and clinical manifestations of the pandemic contributes to uncertainty in preparing for future pandemics."

Conclusion: At chest CT, the Omicron SARS-COV-2 variant showed nontypical peribronchovascular pneumonia and less pulmonary vascular involvement than did the Delta variant in hospitalized patients with similar disease severity.
