    It is still very possible that emerging variants will hit the young badly - then we will see a different perspective.

    Perhaps I misunderstand you, but why are "at risk people" not able to be sheltered?

    And the Delta variant is now affecting the young much more than other variants - if people think Delta is the final variant then I think they will soon be proved wrong. I hope not, but the potential for Covid to become an illness of the young (where it could potentially cause serious illness) is present and so no age group should be thinking in terms of letting other age groups die.

    I don't care how 'pointless' some people think the elderly are to the world now - I think more that these are human beings who have given much already (many served us in wars and helped give the freedom we, including the young, all enjoy) and have people who love them and want them around for as long as possible.

    Thank God we have people like @danbandanna who have compassion.

    My son in Austin Texas and my grandson there had Covid. Both healthy and fit. My son also had his prostate removed, unrelated. I am not sure if age is as big of a concern as believed. Old and weak will die of something, sooner or later. Keeping us locked up and alcohol free is not healthy or helpful.

    A 26 yr old Spaniard just won the US Open Golf championship 2 weeks after testing positive for Covid while having to leave a tournament with a 6 shot lead. Amazing.

    It isn't a rise. We've been ranging from 10 to 13%. Don't know about the deaths. Could be they're just catching them earlier and dexamethasone seems to work then. But I'm guessing.

    Yes. I like it much better when they go "granular". The central gov has only so many levers, and they are all blunt.

    The other side of the island is running around ~4900 active cases.

    All of these are two dose vaccines? So this will cover about half the population? Are children still the lowest on the priority list?

    Yes. Yes. Children might be in group C. Are you a senior?
