QUOTE :- 16 people under the age of 40 have died in the past 5 days of Covid in England hospitals alone.Haha that stat is ridiculous!
Your percentage would only make sense if every single one of the 21.5m people in that age bracket had Covid in the same 5 day time period as the 16 that died from it.
This is where the number 16 came from but missed the rather significant next few words.
Those 5 days being during a period where deaths are around 80 a day instead of at least 800 a day as they were in the last big wave BEFORE the vaccines.
And are only not 800 a day now because of those vaccines.
And that 16 would also be much higher also for the same reason.
Not getting at anyone I stress Very easy to get lost in numbers. I make mistakes in the data I post here every day or two.
Just noting statistics can and often are very easy to misunderstand as to their significance and you can easily by accident - let a lone on purpose - make them seem to mean many things they are often not.
