Thread Name: BS: New news on the pandemic COVID-19
Subject: RE: BS: New news on the pandemic
Again, Iains, you quote all those numbers without saying how common they are in the general population.
No one is saying being overweight or obese is good for you, or is without risks. But as yet there is insufficient evidence that you are more liable to become critically ill with coronavirus because of it. That evidence may arrive in time.
But for the moment: EVERYONE should act as if they are as susceptible as everyone else. Not developing the idea that 'that group is at greater risk than I am'. It is no exaggeration to say that attitude could cost lives.
