WNU Editor: It is known that Covid-19 is very dangerous to those who have other medical conditions. This data just proves the point on why people who have a serious medical issue must be very careful.

More people are dying form the lock downs than from corona. As mention for the last 5 freaking months have an articulate lockdown not a well Demgineered train wreck. I have a 70 year old relative teaching on public school. I am not that concerned. Fit, no diabetes, no hypertension, not overweight in the least. Active. HDL somewhat too high.Some concern but not a lot more than usual.

Look Nancy Pelosi is not concerned,. She does not wear a N85 mask nor a surgical mask.She wears a designer, color coordinated mask made out of gauze or some such thing. COVID is a political weapon more than it is a serious disease.

In terms of life years lost, COVID pales in comparison to a light, moderate, or heavy flu season.

I remember reading similar data from Italy very early on -- maybe April. Their dataset was much smaller but it was the same thing: people with health problems made up most of the dead.
