    Wouldn't it be more efficient to quarantine over 80s?

    It would If the purpose was stopping deaths.

    However, I think the economic shutdown is for other reasons.

    If you can find the time to keep these updated i for one would really appreciate you doing so.
    I'd suspect most of those people would say they have had full lives and i hope those ages stay the same .
    Of course i do not wish death on anyone ,but if they are elderly i think they would be more accepting .
    Cheers Willrocks:)

    It wouldn't work because once the virus overwhelms the healthcare system and there is not enough ventilators and hospital beds, younger people will be dying from lack of oxygen.

    What I'm trying to say, quarantining the over 80s alone won't work. But locking down the nursing homes might actually be useful if it's possible to get the caretakers to live on the site.

    That is the scary thing and the BIG BIG Problem.
    This is easily fixed in most cases while normal medical attention can be given, but once the system in overwhelmed then people die from lack of even basic care.
    You can make oxygen at home if you get hydrogen peroxide or lithium salts are even better.
    You can do it by electrolysis but this is really inefficient
    Lithium salts are used as scrubbers for co2 ,but you can also do some research and find the correct salt that scrubs and the by product is oxygen.
    WE will most likely not get to this point but the knowledge is great to have even if you never use it ,right?
    If you are in a position to need at home administration of oxygen PLEASE RESEARCH the latest data because to much is going to cause more problems.
    The latest studies suggest we have been doing a lot of harm to patients in hospitals (EVEN NOW) because of the administration of to much oxtgen.

    Wrong. Isolating elderly would work. It's not young people requiring ventilators or hospital beds, it's the elderly.

    My calculations have the median at 77.5. It isn't "starting to get lower" as deputy chief medical officer Professor Paul Kelly states (below). Also, I can't find any evidence that a 68-year-old woman has died. And even if it were true, it would only bring the median age of death to 77. Hardly a material change, and certainly not newsworthy.

    Until proven otherwise, this reeks of fake news.

    So far, from what I've read the only age group that are practically immune and recover quickly are babies and toddlers. Even teenagers can get really sick.

    Some interesting stats from the US.

    These early figures mean nothing. We have had low impacts so far and it would be great if it stays that way. USA also had low numbers to start with.

    If we can keep beds available at hospitals it will keep numbers lower. But it is simply the first stage of a drawn out process for this year. Let’s have this discussion after the winter is over.

    How many in the USA are elderly. What is the average/median age of death? These stats are not being published. Instead the media projects alarmist views.

    If falsely yelling 'Fire' or 'Bomb' in a crowded space is considered a terrorist act. And is not covered by free speech. What the media is doing with COVID-19 is nothing less.

    More proof that global death rates are being skewed by age (70+ years old) and preexisting conditions.

    I would suspect that most of the 80+ year old people that have died after catching this virus died from secondary bacterial infections and would have died from any other flu.
