And Minnie....in ICUs...sure...those with advanced age probably die sooner.....but the ones stuck on life support in life/death struggle for weeks and even months due to this disease are 50s and 60s in my experience. If we are able t get many of these people off of life support.....many are stuck with "stiff" lungs that likely will be a severe issue with them for the rest of their lives. Even the ones that are very ill that never end up on a ventilator...can have their lungs significantly impacted for the remainder of their lives.Not in the least.
Here's another "sample of age":
Can you "follow" that?
We really do not know yet what long term complications will crop up from this disease.
Anybody who boils it down to just a bunch of old people dying is beyond clueless.
