The data continues to come in and is clear.
Not only are the hospitalization requirements from nursing home and other “skilled care” institutions for elderly people ridiculously over-represented (in every state where I have found detailed information by forty to fifty times or more their percentage of the population at-large) but they are also ridiculously over-represented when it comes to deaths, usually by the same percentages.
Without these deaths and hospitalizations and deaths, in fact this disease would be of no special concern at all. Oh certainly, it would kill some people — but by no means would it rate as a serious public health threat worthy of closing the entire economy and causing an economic depression.
It wasn’t originally either, by the way — this hasn’t changed. “Mitigations” will not change if you will get the virus; that has been admitted since this began. They only change when you get the virus. If it’s going to kill you, it’s going to kill you.
