200,000 dead Americans is not "CNN's number", it's the actual number. That you would try to dismiss it as unimportant because it disproportionately kills older people is absolutely disgusting. Covid kills kids, teenagers, 20 year olds, 30 year olds and everyone else.

America has radically underperformed other developed nations because of the high density of brain dead cultists. Trumpism is cancer and so is your shitty and disrespectful attitude toward literal mountains of dead Americans.

And compare it to the NORMAL 2 1/2 million that die every single year?

If you have a point, make one. Use your words. That covid kills more old people than younger does not make it an unimportant issue.

200,000 thousand dead Americans and you're here trying to excuse it. Do you have any morality whatsoever or are you really this pathetic?

2 and a half million people do not die from covid every year. You lie because you're dishonest and have an agenda.

Lets just do a quick check on this^ Lets start with....did any governors send infected people back into nursing homes? If so, who were those governors?

The biggest tragedy of covid is that it didn't take your ass out with the others. At least then we could've said it did one good thing.

Trump supporters are immoral degenerates who will lie and exaggerate to try to protect Trump's horrible performance.

If 200,000 dead Americans is no big deal as you claim, 200,001 wouldn't be either. I do hope karma gets you.

Compare it to the 650,000 Americans who died from the Spanish flu and when we only had 1/3 of today's population

On the raw data yes; COVID disproportionately (but not exclusively) impacts elderly patients. That isn't surprising or unusual. Lots of medial conditions disproportionately affect the elderly, often for similar reasons.

I've no idea what conclusion you're trying to hint at based on that data though. Are you saying old people don't matter?

What I'm saying is old people are on their last stage of life anyway

So you're saying we shouldn't put in any effort in preventing elderly people from dying from anything? Any what is your proposed age cut-off, because there are lots of people in their 70s who wouldn't consider themselves old and are getting on with enjoying their lives, contributing to society, running countries etc.?

And what about the not insignificant minority of younger people who are at greater risk from COVID due to underlying health conditions (be they short term or chronic)?

She's not going to go to the hospital then? Even if she gets bad?
