How many have died from starvation since the lock down was declared? About 400 are dead as of last night
OH NO 400 :O
Are you so stupid that something as simple as no job = no money, no money = no food?
So 400 people have died since the start of the lock down, that's what 400 people in 7 weeks?
How many people have lost their jobs since the beginning of the lock down?
Is it near or equal to 400?
Definitely not.
Tsek!

At least smart enough to know that the dead can't be employed or benefit from the economy. Throw more insults

Sweden’s policy of keeping schools, restaurants and businesses open while practicing social distancing to prevent the coronavirus pandemic from spreading was seen as bold, but now it has the highest deaths per capita in Europe from COVID-19.
Could you perhaps quote the death rate and compare it to other countries, all I'm finding are articles that say it's high with no numbers what so ever. Going by the stats- they have less than 4000 deaths currently, which is pretty much nothing. If you want to say it's high as a function of per capita, naturally--the country only has a population of 10 million, and more important is that this isn't over yet.

Then we have to also consider that other factors play a part. As well as the fact that death reporting is sketchy at best and there's a difference between died with and died from.

Most people dying from COVID-19 are retired or too sick to be working in the first place?

It's also only as dangerous as severe flu. It also seems asymptomatic carriers aren't really a big deal.

The virus is also going quickly so vaccines won't likely succeed.

You've been taken in by the fearmongering but we possibly wouldn't have noticed too much if there hadn't been testing for it. It also seems possible that this virus was spreading since mid-November...

I'm sorry. You've just listed stats that justify the majority response to the question of this discuss. Read and understand why most people say they not comfortable with lifting of the lock down. What fear mongering are you referring to?

On 1 March 2020, UK had less 30 known Coronavirus cases, now over 34000 people are dead in less than three months. Do you still wish to campare this to TB?
