Although the quote is accurate, not really in context to what he was saying. He clearly said it effects the elderly and others with conditions. He was talking specifically about young people. And what the clip doesn’t show he spoke about why school should be open after that clip.

Another reason why people don’t trust news.
It is absolutely fair to attack him on his virus response. But the media continues to do a horrible job explaining to the public that the virus is much different for certain segments of the population that others.

Also, there’s a huge distinction between dying with the virus and dying of the virus. 200k plus will end up being laughable IMO.

Yeah, this doesn't say what you think it does. First two sentences, same authors responding to this kind of interpretation of their "perspective" paper, which for the uninitiated is basically just an opinion piece.

I didn't say it said anything... people in here just seem to post random stuff from the Internet trying to support some view without much thought to what it really says or means.

I might start following this and watching it. Here are the Top 20 cities in Oklahoma by cases

View attachment 85796

What did Bartlesville and Claremore do wrong? The number of deaths in those 2 cities seem way out of proportion. Older population? Poor hospitals? Large number of nursing home deaths?

Some 70% of Stillwater cases have been 18-49 so that may explain the low death rate. All 4 deaths were over 65 years old.

Bartlesville had a big outbreak at a nursing home and Claremore has a big outbreak going on at the Claremore Veterans Center. 30+ of the deaths in Claremore were Vets who died who were living in the VA center there and 130+ workers and vets have tested positive as of the end of Aug.

Yep, Bartlesville here, and that nursing home outbreak was BAD. Outside of that, the death count and hospitalizations have been pretty in line with everywhere else.
