    For the record, I still think allowing kids to go to a "corona virus" fun camp, get it, recover and come home able to to school and be with grandparents would have been a good strategy. I failed to take into account the lack of logic and irrational fear of parents.

    Imagine if we had done that in HK in March. Taken a few weeks of kids off school and then able to reopen them safely, rather than the 9 months lost schooling and craziness we did have.

    You fail to understand that forcibly removing children from their parents and sending them to a camp to get coronavirus was a stupid idea six months and a stupid idea now says everything about you.

    Stubborn, wrong and utterly lacking in humanity.

    And the kids that died or got seriously ill? You don't think the illogical and irrational parents might just be a tad upset or just say oh well they would have died of something anyway.

    Your quote not mine, and I don’t recall seeing you post any solid data or research at all either in support or to refute your “just a flu” comment.

    And your “selective data” comment only highlights your lack of understanding of how data is used.

    Oh please .... Yep never used data professionally in my life.

    You really need to get a grip on that ego of yours, it is the root of your poor analysis and conclusions.

    You are on ignore.

    For someone who loves to quote logic, science and common sense, it is remarkable how little of that you display.

    You don't even know the percentage of those would would have immunity and for how long that would last. You have no idea how many deaths and long term issues your little idea would cause. You THINK it might not be too bad and it's worth the disruption that it caused to their education and their social relationship.

    Someone might need to remind you that running science experiments on human being without knowing the outcome is unethical, definitely not logical and asking parents to subject their children to such experiments completely defies common sense and frankly borders on insanity.

    You only need looking at the number of parents that are concerned about vaccination to realize how insane and unpractical this idea is...

    I refer you to the chart posted by Sage yesterday showing the age range of deaths.

    Classic 'TheBrit' modus operandi, you can't cite meaningful (errr any) research that supports your claim that the risk from covid hasn't lessend at all so you just spout opinions. When they are shown to be shaky you resort to insults, and then when the insults get no traction you stick your proverbial fingers in your ears and go off in a huff.

    Happy enough to dish it it out to others like Katherine, but no spine to take it yourself.

    Go on then, tell us, how many would it cause?

    p.s. I'm going to enjoy sifting through the detailed data you're going to supply to support your claim.
