Narada Vantari, I am over 70, have a pre-existing inherited condition, (no amount of healthy living could have avoided it) and I have to share my community with many who share your views.
It seems, from your letter, that you’ll be happy for me to die in the gutter, or at least on the end of a ventilator, so that you can avoid any restriction on your social life.
You seem to have drunk the kool aid espoused by guru Pete Evans. He questions, as you do, that COVID deaths are the fault of those who have not cared for their immune systems with herbs and vegetarianism (and he’s making millions out of it).
From this perspective the responsibility for an early death from COVID rests entirely with the dead person and no effort should be made by the community to lessen the risks of contagion, and wearing a mask is much too much of a sacrifice.
You also question the legitimacy of the diagnosis at all. Copious quantities of information published in peer reviewed journals provides detailed analysis of the virus and how it is transmitted. For you this is not legitimate, you’d rather obtain your information from ‘influencers’ who are laughing all the way to the bank.
I have, of course, had both doses of a vaccine because I do believe in science so hopefully I will be able to avoid that terrible death, gasping for air, that you seem to believe I deserve because I’m too old or I didn’t eat the right food.
