    Again, I must be dim.

    Covid has an exponential risk/age graph. I fail to see why these two arbitrary cutoffs are important?

    That model is based on diagnosed COVID - so it is CFR - higher than IFR but not a lot more now in the US where testing is pretty widespread!

    But I like that it is interactive and reasonably complete in terms of comorbidities

    Maybe…

    That was in March - low profile - and it does not seems to have done any good. Perhaps he should have been a bit stronger? Trump is quite capable of making points strongly...

    Paul is pushing a party-political point - as you well know. Equally - you well know that party's base is anti-science and also anti-expert. Basically - anti Fauci.

    This is an interesting paper, and is rare motivation for the very many IVM RCTs being conducted now.

    W - I realise the UK is now out of the EU and maybe you don't know much about us.
