@PhlipElder : You're correct about the age demographic of deaths here in Canada -- and likely in many parts of the world.
Here's some info from Health Canada : https://health-infobase.canada.ca/covid-19/epidemiological-summary-covid-19-cases.html
The numbers show that I'm VERY unlikely to die, but have about a 10% chance of ending up in the ICU. Granted 10% is low but that's way better than lottery odds.
BUT, I don't believe that the issue/fear is about "death" specifically, but about the long term effects of Covid. Having spoken with individuals who "recovered" from Covid, along with numerous articles and posts online, there are a large number of those that are experiencing health issues many months later.
Some are relatively minor (fatigue), others not so much (respiratory issues).
Canada is currently at 10k deaths for a population of approximately 35M
The US is at 200k deaths for a population of 350M.
While the case per 100k then differ by a fair margin, bear in mind that we're almost entirely "middle class" in Canada and have access to free health care all of the time.
If we had the issue of hoards of low income families who couldn't afford to pay for their healthcare, we'd be in a MUCH worse state I'm sure...
P.S. These so-called "draconian" practices aren't to protect you -- we don't care about you -- it's to protect me and those that I care about. I care about them!
