    Hold on....73% of all people in intensive care with covid19 have a BMI over 25? Oh wow. Where to start with this.

    Edit: allow me to the preempt the usual suspects - no, it's not muscle in these cases.

    The typical American male has a BMI of 29 just short of obesity. So 73% of males going into ICU with covid19 are typical? What percentage of the population have a BMI over 25?

    Really surprised how well India did in this survey... despite reported zero-notice lockdowns, its population seems to think that it's government responded well.

    I think I'm at least a year away based on my graph LOL. I was happy when it went below 30 a few weeks back!

    Indeed a great surprise how well people have taken things seriously in spite of typical Modi's demonetization style shock and awe announcement, his hardcore followers were always expected to sing to his tunes so no surprise there but in general it seems most people understand that India is a high density population time-bomb so better to be safe than sorry, also timely awareness campaign by film and sports celebrities might have helped a lot..

    It seems worldwide most people have got the message, more than politicians give them credit for.

    The lack of centralised co-ordination is shocking.
