COVID-19 Case Rates and Death Rates in England

The age demographic heatmaps presented for COVID-19 cases and deaths for England on the UK Government's  coronavirus.data.gov.uk page contain a lot of information, some of which is sacrificed in preserving a clear concise format.

Presenting the same underlying data in 3D and also combining case and death rates together on the same graph highlights the tragic trends and relative scales of the epidemic in England.

The graphs below show this data up to 21-Mar-21.  They are updated weekly:

Plotting the same case and death rate data on a log scale shows the exponential age-related risk very clearly, with constant gradients between all age groups through the orders of magnitude and throughout the pandemic.
