Hi,

Thank you for a brilliant visualisation of risk.

Can I simply add micromorts together? For example giving birth in UK and spending 2 nights in hospital = 230 or is it (I suspect) a little more complicated than that?

Also, are you able to use morbidity data to calculate "micromorbs" (ration of non-lethal risk)? For example, the risk, or micromorb, of experiencing lobar pneumonia following a general anaesthetic.

## Additive?
