“No one has proposed a national lockdown in response to your list of leading causes.”
That would be perhaps because none of them are transmissible, as in, you can’t catch them from others and therefore a totally useless measure to combat them. The point was to show the absurdity that arises when you use total deaths from a disease divided by the total population to give an estimate of risk. It is meaningless and by using that methodology I could say with much justification that we don’t need a health care service at all for any disease.
“might wilt away if we ignore him. I personally will, it is a waste of time.”
Perhaps with Dave you are right but perhaps not with others who read this forum.
