Not going to allow that to pass Dave without pointing out how absurd it is to use that figure. I have calculated the new parameter, Dave’s Mortality Rate (DMR), for the 5 leading causes of death in England and wales for 2019 (because no covid). The DMR for covid-19 for the whole UK in 2020 is 0.116 the calculations shown in the post I linked above.

So let me draw a conclusion from using Dave’s Mortality Rate. We are wasting our money. Lets not bother spending £34.7 billion a year on Alzheimers care because by the DMR it’s trivial. No need to worry about ischaemic heart disease or cerebrvascular disease either, that would have saved 110 billion in Europe. Dave’s Mortality Rate shows us there is miniscule risk, so why bother. Imagine, we could half our tax rates and no need for National Insurance to be paid.

Seriously Dave, if you are going use a meaningless figure for one disease then you got to do the same for all. I hope you realise just how ridiculous it is to that method.
