So let’s have a look at the scoreboard on 3 January 2021, having passed through two waves of Covid in this Country. Let’s call it a belated New Years Eve party!
That’s right folks. Despite all the panic and carry on, according to their own figures and table, if you are under the age of 50, your risk of dying from Covid-19 doesn’t even register.
To put a little bit more perspective around that (something sorely missing nowadays), we locked up nearly 17 million (16,944,725) people to avoid a risk that, for them, isn’t even statistically relevant enough that they could round it up to 1 decimal place.
The <50 demographic is 66% of the population. If you drag the threshold up to <65, you get 84% of the population and the Case Fatality Rate (even being generous because of the lack of fidelity in the data) rises to a staggering 0.15. Yes, this would register on their table…just. Without the generosity, it would most certainly round to 0.1.
More or less, that is the working demographic of this country. The productive demographic. The demographic that funds the Universal Healthcare System, and the handouts.
Let’s put a bit more perspective around that figure.
You’ll notice that 2009 was excluded from the graph above. That’s because it’s an
outrider outlier, and is rather inconvenient. Perhaps an event something like COVID…except for the locking up bit?
Our descendants will truly shake their heads…provided they are allowed to.
