Death of a young person from corona virus

There is a report that a child under 18 has died from the coronavirus in California, Los Angeles County health officials announced.

I expect the social media to be circulating this report as if it is dooms day.

The fact is that the death of young people from this virus is small, relative to the number of elderly people above 70 who have died. Maybe, the ratio is 1000 to 1.

Young people do die from many causes, so we do not need to be alarmed with a small number of deaths from the virus. We have to take it as an accident.

We only need to be alarmed when there is a large increase. I do not expect this to be the case.

So far, I have seen the government in many countries taking strong measures to stop the spread. I believe that many of these measures are over-reacting to the risk. The justification is – better be safe. OK, go ahead.

I expect that the governments will soon realize that the risk from the virus, while worse than a flu, does not justify the extreme measures that are being taken.

In a few weeks time, they will reduce the extreme measures.

    i think OVERTLY MI$managed GLOBA-LIES-ATION has given rise to the BREAKNECK SPEED OF COVID SPREADING AROUND THE GLOBE.

    TAKE THE CASE OF SG.

    MINSITER SAYS THAT WE CAN EXPECT 200K SGS STUDYING OR WORKING OVERESEAS TO RETURN FROM SEVERELY HIT COUNTRIES LIKE EUROPE AND USA.

    WHY RETURN NOW SO HURRIEDLY WHEN THEY HAVE GOT THE TIME ADVANTAGE WHEN COVID WAS JUST STARTING TO SPREAD OUT FROM WUHAN?

    SO,WORLD LEADERS N ‘GREAT’ BUSINESS LEADERS THOGHT NOTHING OF COVID BEFORE ,JUST COUPPLE OF MONTHS BACK?

    OF COURSE,WITH 200K COMING BACK FROM SEVERELY INFECTED PLACES LIKE NEW YORK OR OTHER US STATES OR FRANCE OR UK ,WE ARE GOING TO SEE MORE INFECTED CASES.

    AND,such NEW CASES ARE JUST GOING TO CAUSE MORE CONTAGION.

    YES,WE KNOW WE ARE MERELY TAKING OUR OWN SGS BACK BUT WHERE IS THE ‘FORESIGHT’ AND FOR-WARNING??

  • TruBlu:

    MY POINT IS OUR KIDS FROM RICH FAMILIES CAN SUKA SUKA GO OVERSEAS TO STUDY OR DO WHATEVER OTHER THINGS unlike OUR MORE COMMON FOLKS’ KIDS WHO DIE DIE MUST STUDY IN SG ONLY UNLESS GIVEN FREE SCHOLARSHIPS?

    SO,ALL THE RICH KIDS NOW ‘FEEL’ IT IS BETTER TO RETURN HOME TO ‘SAFETY’?
    AND WHO WILL PAY THE PRICE?

    SGS WHO STAYED BACK AND CANNOT AFFORD TO SEND THEIR KIDS TO STUDY ABROAD?

    SO,WHY THE RICH PARENST WHO ARE SUPPOSEDLY ‘SMARTER’ AND CLEVERER DID NOT EVEN HAVE SIMPLE FORESIGHT?

  • bgkl:

    Tan Kin Lian, what the EFF man? So if we write off young people dying as accidents, that means they are less significant than old people dying? No doctors, virologists or medical researchers will need to take into account their deaths when developing vaccines and medication?

    Your thinking is no different from Ong Ye Kung. You are really a gone-case boomer nutjob.

    Dr Anthony Fauci warned of this -

    “You don’t make the timeline, the virus makes the timeline,’

    https://www.marketwatch.com/story/you-dont-make-the-timeline-the-virus-makes-the-timeline-says-dr-anthony-fauci-2020-03-25?mod=mw_latestnews

    Infectious disease expert warns COVID-10 outbreak is not anywhere near under control.

    LET NO ONE BE COMPLACENT I would say – the coronavirus struck down a lot of younger ones in Europe and USA- said to be over 50% in this category.

    aiyoh ? ah lian ah lian ah, your background is actuarial lar and you may speak from such cold indifferent context (just a number, ratio or statistics away from the human feeling sensitive to the loss of lives) lar ? i also know that the chances of young people dying from red ant bites are small lar ?

  • Be more mindful to sent news:

    Why did social media need to circulate this report which is irrelevant to Singapore? Singapore has strong measures in place to stop the virus spreading, so be more mindfulness of what we publish in social media. It is not alarming but the too many non-sense news will agitate us. We need something more mindful to cool ourself down.

  • Steven:

    Since TKL thinks that everybody is overstating the impact of the covid-19, maybe he should just go where the clusters are and then tell us if the virus is really dangerous AFTER he is infected.

  • TKL Sia Suey:

    The president just approved $55 Billions to fight the virus. That is how serious and damaging the matter is.

    While Tan Kin Lian expects the people to get used to it and expose themselves to the virus according to his crazy mentality.

    The truth is NO ONE BELIEVE this crazy guy better go and die himself.

    Luckily this day dreaming guy had his deposit forfeited.

    TKL, for f**k’s sake why do you wash your behind in public?

    I do not know if you or CoVID-19 is worse. At least with CoVID-19 there is a chance of survival. With you in charge we are done for sure.
