    We have a LOT of old, unhealthy people with multiple diagnoses. Many of them are confined in a germ incubator, read: old folks home (at least 33% of all deaths). If you need supplemental oxygen to survive when "healthy", you're in a lot of trouble with a serious upper respiratory tract infection. Have you seen those oxygen concentrator commercials showing granny out shopping for flowers? That's why we recommend those at risk get an influenza vaccine each fall. As my more liberal friends say, "we're getting soft."

    My father is 70 and recently had an ablation for a heart arhythmia. I think his life still matters, do you? I don't think he's soft either.

    Who says his life doesn't matter? We all have loved ones we encourage to do what they can to prevent contagion. If we had stopped where the science was (15 days to slow the spread), and gotten on with things we'd be on our way to herd immunity. Which is the only way forward regardless of a vaccine some months into the future, if at all. WE are soft refusing to accept this is how life has worked for millenia. Tell your dad you love him, believe me, you just never know.

    When talking about the vulnerable in generalities like the funny grandmas in commercials it's easier to belittle their importance to society.

    I'm under no illusion that my father will live forever. I just hope his life isn't cut unnecessarily short by the ignorant actions of others, as I do your father.

    There's nothing funny about the way we market to our seniors allowing them to think they can live "normal" lives with serious medical conditions. We have a very strange idea of life and death. I've seen no evidence of anyone belittling our elderly in this, although I'm sure it exists. In fact the opposite is true, we've shut down our society for their benefit, and there's been very little protesting. It's a contagious disease likely to never go away, we need to get used to that.

    Uh, I'm worried about exposure because my wife has successfully fought lung cancer for 3 years and I would like it to be 4+.

    Note: She never smoked, but I moved her to a high radon state and she handled our pool chemicals for 15 years.

    Good luck to you and her Cy. Congrats on the win so far. Scary times for this stuff. Iím taking my cancer survivor in for a screening endoscopy tomorrow morning. She had a Covid test today to be sure they will allow her in. Waiting at this time for that result...
