Your thoughts... 


ABC News: Heated Q+A discussion sees economist Gigi Foster deny she is 'advocating for people to die'.

The trouble with comparing data to Sweden's relaxed approach, is that the elderly were not properly shielded and so most of the deaths have been in the care homes and among other elderly people [we might need to have and OLD Lives Matter movement].   I think one radio comment that I heard was over 5.000 of the Swedish deaths were amongst the older age groups.

One could debate the ethics of making the pension money last by letting us golden oldies 'go the way of all flesh' at a faster rate then previously.

My thoughts are..... 

It's all good.... 

Until it your life on the line........

And the other thing is, which seems to slip everyone mind is, 

This Covid19 is a NOVEL virus.....

We don't know what the long term ramifications are,

In 6 months we could have mass blood clots on brains ,heart attacks,on those  that "have recovered"

So it's really best at this time ,not to get it, until we find out more about it.....

Yep!  Carbon you and my mum should form a mutual admiration society!  She says that very same thing every time we talk about it, only she's afraid ramifications could take up to 50 years to develop, and nobody would account the deaths and disabilities to Covid...
