Most COVID-19 discussions seem to be missing the fact that everyone dies anyways. Shouldn’t we be incorporating that into our perspective, especially since it targets those with less time remaining?

I’m struggling to wrap my mind around the sheer ignorance and lack of critical thinking required to come up with this argument 🤦🏻‍♂️

So, whilst I think you are hugely missing the point as the fact we are not immortal is irrelevant, you may have accidentally said something intelligent.

The thing about COVID-19 is that it, essentially, only kills the old and those with weak immune systems. The thing is, those people die a lot anyway. Many of those people would have died this winter from flu or just general old age so dying from COVID-19, perhaps, shouldn’t be recorded as an ‘excess death’ (which is a metric used to record if any sort of new disease is actually changing anything from normal).

I would question if an extra 100,000 deaths in China from standard flu would even be statistically significant. So maybe we are all worrying about nothing? For most people (not including the heroic Dr Lee in China) their number was probably up anyway, statistically speaking.

(Cont’d) I think the public health response is fully warranted - of course we should try and prevent early death. However, we’d be naive to go about as if there aren’t thousands of other causes that can and eventually will kill us

Not sure what is your point... sounds like - “as long as I am not the one dying- it doesn’t matter”...???
