Under 50s more likely to die from accidents than COVID

According to Cambridge University statistician Sir David Spiegelhalter, a healthy person in Britain under the age of 50 is more likely to die from an accident (this includes car accidents) than from COVID.

Spiegelhalter added that of the near 43,000 deaths in Britain that have been blamed on COVID, only 959 were 50 years of age or under. And of that group 80% of those had underlying health conditions which means they would have undoubtedly survived if they had been healthy. This has left many wondering if COVID was the cause of death or the underlying health condition.

Which of course begs the obvious questions, why was the whole country quarantined? Why were the healthy quarantined?

He said:

  • Under 40s were more like to die in car accident than COVID
  • Under 25s more likely to die of pneumonia or the flu than COVID
School children under the age of 15 have a very low chance of dying from coronavirus, according to statistics

Epidemiologists in Canada came to a similar conclusion. They said based on Canadian statistics a person under the age of 65 had a .0006% chance of dying from COVID. This was the same chance of dying from a car accident. READ: Opinion: We are infections disease experts. It’s time to lift the COVID-19 lockdowns

So it’s obvious either end the lockdown, or ban all cars?
