We can find no government link that distinguishes between people having a positive Covid-19 test but a light illness, and more serious cases. For now, "self-isolating" will have to stand in for "not critical." Read more about Covid 19 data issues.
CELOS does research about public space, which is radically shrinking. People might as well be as knowledgeable as possible, about what's happening with this world-wide phenomenon.
From the Centre for Disease Control, Aug.26, 2020: "deaths involving coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). For 6% of the 153,504 deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death. The number of deaths with each condition or cause is shown for all deaths and by age groups."

From The Spectator Aug.28, 2020: "A broad study led by Liverpool University and published in the British Medical Journal today...sheds a lot more light on how Covid-19 affects children. The study looks at data from 260 hospitals in England, Scotland and Wales, to which 69,516 patients were admitted with Covid symptoms between 17 January and 3 July. Of these, 651 were aged under 19 and 225 were aged under 12 months. Serious underlying medical conditions were present in 42 per cent of the children.
Most were successfully treated on hospital wards but 116 went on to be admitted to critical care and 58 ended up on mechanical ventilation....Six children went on to die. Three were aged under 28 days, had been born very premature and had complex congenital anomalies and bacterial sepsis. The other three who died were in the 15-18 age bracket, two of whom had profound neurodisabilities which compromised their respiratory systems. The other had a suppressed immune system as a result of cancer treatment and was also suffering from bacterial sepsis. No children without a serious comorbidity of an additional illness died, and neither did any child between the ages of 28 days and 15 years."
