Once again we have to accept fairy data which has been proven so wrong.

So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

No. 26 deaths total. So 5 deaths / 1 Million pop

Iceland has 29 deaths. But only 340,000 people, so 85 deaths / 1 Million pop

Is masking more important? Or weight loss?

I think compliance on one could be improved by public shaming.

Three confirmed cases of the Brazilian strain in England, and another three more in Scotland.

It is certainly true that New Zealand, and to a lesser extent Australia, had an initial advantage of geographic isolation against the pandemic. But both of us had cases, via overseas travellers. If hard lockdowns and other measures had not been applied, exponential growth would have seen both countries in a similar position to Europe. Scot, I'm on the ground over here, you're not. We know what worked, and why (and also what failures of hotel quarantine lead to)

More likely to get it. More likely to get severe symptoms, more likely to be indoors, more likely to require care.

How can you not see it?

More likely to get on a bus for a short trip, rather than walk...

Oh, wait, maybe you are just joking around...
