ELDERLY: COVID TARGETS

As we have been reporting for a year, the greatest percentage of virus victims are elderly people in nursing homes and those over 65 years of age. (See our 16 February article, “AVERAGE AGE OF COVID DEATH VS. AVERAGE AGE OF DEATH”; our 19 January article, “NY NURSING HOME COVID DEATHS ON THE RISE”; and our 1 December article,  “YOUNG VS. OLD: FIGHTING THE COVID WAR.”
Last 21 March, Italy’s health experts stressed, as MacauBusiness.com reported, “About 31 percent of the deaths were aged 70-79, about 44 percent aged 80-89, and about 14 percent aged over 90.”
Strike Two
Now, as Reuters reported last Wednesday, a new study from the medical journal The Lancet has shown, “Most people who have had coronavirus are protected from catching it again for at least six months, but those aged 65 and over are more prone to reinfection.”
The large-scale study, conducted in Denmark, revealed,
“While prior infection gave those under the age of 65 years around 80% protection against reinfection, for people aged 65 and older, it only gave 47% protection, indicating that they are more likely to catch COVID-19 again.”
The study stated there was no evidence of a decline against re-infection within the follow-up period of six months.
Dr. Steen Ethelberg, one of the researchers for The Lancet, stated,
“Our study confirms what a number of others appeared to suggest: reinfection with COVID-19 is rare in younger, healthy people, but the elderly are at greater risk of catching it again. Since older people are also more likely to experience severe disease symptoms, and sadly die, our findings make clear how important it is to implement policies to protect the elderly during the pandemic.”
TRENDPOST: Once again, the data proves the elderly are most at risk of dying from COVID – and, of course, as detailed by the CDC, 94 percent of virus victims were suffering from 2.6 preexisting comorbidities – and young, healthy people are least at risk from dying from the virus. Yet, these facts are ignored by the mainstream media and politicians who continue to lock down nations rather than taking measures to protect those most vulnerable to the virus.
