31. Italy has the second highest average age of any country...

Japan has the highest.

It could possibly be that simple. Mortality rates vary by demographic. Overall mortality rate is only part of the picture.

For example SARS mortality rate for people under 24 was 0%.

You have to evaluate by demographic, and even that has degrees of uncertainty and overlap. Demographics can be categorized infinite ways.

Add in the low testing rates and the fact that we are in the midst of an unfolding fluid event rather than having the benefit of post-event hindsight full data analysis.

In other words, we don't know shit yet.
