Matt - 1. No you weren't asking why, you were just rather flamboyantly trying to state your view.2. I don't think you understood my post. My bracketed point was simply preempting someone posting a news article stating that a high % of those in hospital are young people; my point is that without knowing how many there are of each age group in the general population and how many in each age group are infected, that data isn't worth much

Seem to. Without trawling through Alex's posts, I'm pretty sure that isn't what he thinks. He was just trying to oppose what you'd implied, that any economic price was worth it to save even one life. We all know that that is not how risk management works in policy making.

I asked about the value of the data, full stop.
I for one am enjoying the different viewpoints on here so please do keep posting everyone. I dont think thes actually too much major disagreement, everyone is probably just grumpy being cooped up. I know i am.
Agreed... the most sane place I visit on the internet
Seems to be an undercurrent of suspicion among certain people about the vaccine thing and social control measures. For e.g. I was walking home a couple of evenings ago and had crossed the street to get back to my house. A guy on the opposite side thought I was crossing the road to avoid him, and started chuckling and saying out loud stuff about 'scared of coronavirus' loud enough for me to hear him. I stopped and replied to him I wasn't avoiding him because of covid, but just because I needed to cross over to go into my house. There ensued a 10 minute conversation held across a road about how this is all a global scam and the governments will use the vaccine to insert digital monitors in us all. He also believed governments will use this event as an excuse to keep tougher social control measures in place indefinitely, using fear as justification.None of which surprised me. I don't agree with him. Just wish I'd thought to say to him that just because he's paranoid it doesn't mean they're not out to get him.
Maybe I just need to check on my project, take the clips out etc...
