That article isn't going to give the 1,300,000 people the virus has already killed much joy but you don't seem to care about them.
Whats their average age?

And is that "of Covid" or "with Covid"?

And what about the billions of lives affected by lockdowns etc?? Or don't you care?

we already have some immunity 70% of people are a symptomatic, if this virus is so contagious has it not spread to most of the population in nearly a year.
We don't know if the % of people asymptomatic is because of immunity, (if we do I'd like to see the evidence) but we've taken measures to slow the spread (the whole point of lock downs, social distancing) etc nowhere near enough people have been infected to create herd immunity . But even then we know that people can be reinfected and that antibodies start to go away rapidly after 6 months, a vaccine would be the best way to stop people getting infected and passing it on to others and achieving herd immunity

I don’t believe you can catch it twice just more bullshit from the media what are the figures on people catching it twice ? There are different theories on the antibodies and why they drop after being infected with covid because you are not being continually exposed to the virus so your body stops producing them Dr Mike Yeadon. A vaccine for the elderly and vulnerable is the best way to stop a lot of the deaths from the virus doesn’t mean everybody needs a jab I would consider having one after a few years of being in circulation maybe.

You can catch it twice, there are multiple documented cases of that happening, here is a report in a journal of an individual who tested positive twice and whose symptoms were actually WORSE the second time https://www.thelancet.com/journals/laninf/article/PIIS1473-3099(20)30764-7/fulltext
Now I don't want to fear mong most cases of reinfection the second time the symptoms are weaker, but with cases like this and our lack of knowledge of immunity we need to be careful in our assumptions, keep in mind that the individual examined was only 25 years old with no pre existing conditions and the second time around had to receive oxygen support.

Which leads me to your second point, vaccinating the elderly alone won't be enough. If we want to move past this thing we have to look to vaccinate everybody, because even though most people that die are elderly we know that this virus can have a devastating effect on those younger especially with underlying health conditions. A report on ICU covid patients shows that the median age was 60-63. So what are we going to do, only give to people 60 and above? Even if covid isn't killing you it can leave you with irreparable damage, people talk about the death rate like there's no in-between. If you get put on a ventilator or have to receive oxygen support or get long covid where six months later you're still getting shortness of breath, that's not a position anyone wants to be in. I know from personal experience.

Why does average age matter you looking forward to your parents or grandparents dying anytime soon? These are lives man

The distinction between "with Covid" or "of Covid" is silly imo. We know that covid increases risks of stroke, heart attack and pneumonia all we have to do is look at the excess death rate which in covid affected countries have skyrocketed to know that this virus is Really killing people if you're skeptical

Billions of lives will be affected lockdowns or not by a virus roaming free. By slowing the spread the difference is less deaths

The reasons people are interested in the age, is that locking down everyone for a disease that isn't harmful to the vast majority of people would be a serious mismanagement of the crisis.

Whether or not that's the case, isn't my point. It isn't a senseless question to ask, if that is the perspective. It doesn't mean you want your grandparents to die. It might mean that you believe that you can quarantine those groups at risk, and allow businesses to operate more consistently, and not wreck tons of small business

I get this argument and I see its merit but the context of my reply, was that on the hook had posted the figure of known covid deaths and he responded by asking the average age, whether they were 80 or 20 I despise this dismissive sort of statement. I've read countless stories of people losing their parents and grandparents and it's deeply saddening and heartbreaking, behind those cold figures is a person and we would look at it differently if it was a loved one.

Considering I'm a healthy white male who's already had it, I reckon I'm miles down the list.

But I will take it, just to stop the spread of the virus round the country.

And if this is how the walking dead started, we'll atleast I've binge watched the show to get some survival tips.
