|Deaths by age, my graph from here|
In sum, Hong Kong covid deaths average age is 81. Most (60%) are men, 40% are women. 84% are over 70. Under 60 yo are just 3 individuals, or 3% of all deaths, and not a single person under 39 has died of Covid. For three people in a population of 7.5 million, we have locked down their entire cohort. And that continues in other places, where the figures are similar.
This fact is very well known. We’ve known since the outset that it’s a disease that kills, mainly, the elderly. Yet, somehow, it continues to be ignored in policy making. And if anyone does raise it, they’re accused, “so you want to kill your grandma”. I’m pretty sure that most elderly folks don’t want these wide-scale lockdowns which are affecting their kids and grandkids. That’s certainly my view, over 70 and that of my 99 yo mum, grandma and great grandma.
Added: a probably more compelling presentation of the figures, now in pie chart!
