Good point! I think the age distribution is not that different in the mountain and jungle (coast is definitely different!). The official sources contain the age distribution of infected people at global country, but it is not detailed by region, that would be needed to do a detailed analysis together with the general population age distribution.

It would be worth also considering the age distribution in the three regions (coastal, selvas, and sierra). If the last has relatively fewer older people, that could play a role in the lower morbidity.
