Geotpf: LOLITROLU: I mean, that's fine I guess.  You're 83 and don't care if you get sick or die.  But old people can still transmit.  Would you give a sod if by you getting sick you also cause your grandchildren to get sick and die?  Personal risk is not the only issue here.

The chances of anybody under 18 dying from this virus is a number so close to zero it should be treated as zero for purposes of any risk calculation.  The chances of anybody under 50 dying from it is not much higher.

The real chances of death, in the 25% or so range, is from people her age.


For the 1 millionth time, dying from Covid is FAR from the only negative outcome! post-covid symptom is going to be a thing likely for the rest of my life, people dealing with chronic ailments caused by the ravaging done to their organs and nervous system by the virus. That will cause pain, suffering, lost productivity, and direct costs to society through medical treatments for a long time. This isn't just about old people dying, it's about a really, really nasty transmittable disease that is going to cause lifetime problems for ~10% of people who catch it. Oh, and there's some evidence that it's hiding out in nerve cells like chicken pox, which means we have another timebomb waiting possibly decades down the road, who knows what this thing will do when it re-emerges, chicken pox is fairly minimal when you get it as a kid but shingles is supposed to be one of the most painful things imaginable.

Fundamental misunderstanding of the economy.  Unemployment is caused by the virus.  It is not caused by the lockdown.  Until the virus is contained, the economy will suffer.  If you'd like to die, that's fine, but plenty of people have years left and would rather not roll the dice.

She knows the risk. She probably doesn't have much time left anyway. Meh.

stinkynuts: Good thing it was a "slam" instead of a "clapback" or "torch" or infamous "destroys!".

I LOVE it when random opinions are passed off as "news".


A British tabloid (especially one owned by Murdoch) barely qualifies as "news".

It's the Sun, its what they do.

If there weren't irresponsible assholes around, that paper would have gone out of business years ago.
