    I've seen plenty of people wearing masks, some that only have it covering the mouth which is a waste of time if you breathe through your nose.

    I did say 80%, sorry if you didn't understand, yes people in countries that haven't got the luxury health system as we do will not pull through, I'm talking about Australia. One person in the USA under 18 has died but no info on health.
    Going after bit I mean killing, of course anyone can catch it. Here is the current rate. Oh face mask only stops the spread if you are sick it wont stop you from catching it that's what the experts say.

    You said 80% of cases are mild, then proceded to peddle the bullsh!t about it attacking the old and vunerable.

    80% of cases may well be "mild" however your remaining comment was still wrong.

    Exhibit A - 21 yr old female from the UK in otherwise good health died from it last week.

    Even if no "young" died from it, they still spread it. Do you want to die coz some ignorant / arrogant millenial won't do what is needed and infects you ?

    It is misinformation like you are peddling that is stopping a large portion of the country from practicing social distancing and will lead to far greater issues than there should be.

    If there was a virus which killed stupidity, the world population would be near zero, because we all would be dead before age 18.
    Only age and experience can cure stupidity (in most cases) but after watching TV shows like 'Highway Patrol', I'm not sure about that either.

    Make up your mind will you.
    The very few teens or people are under 60 that have died doesn't show their health records or smoking or drug abuse or medication.
    Not wrong, you just didn't understand my point. All good.

    FFS....I'm now starting to understand why others have had a guts full of your lack of comprehension skills.

    You are now the first person in all my years on JC that I will be hitting the ignore button on so don't bother replying to this post coz I won't see it.

    Oh, lol, another know it all that upset over being wrong and posting 2 different things going against their own statement. Don't take it out on me. If you want to accuse someone then take the fall out.

    Don't see 2 different things posted by @VS 5.0 @Trevor loves holden. ..


    Stated, young have died from it

    2nd part....The if portion of "if they didn't die from it, doesn't imply they haven't

    Best you have a re-read and bring the dictionary into play, especially where the word "IF" comes into the conversation

    Now your changing what was said, He was referring to the old people on that statement, read after the comer.
    VS 5.0 said
    While older / weaker people represent a greater proportion of deaths, younger people are far from immune, are hospitalised in ICU and in some instances are still dying from it.

    Now he is stating young people are in ICU and that's is correct then goes on and says still dying from it..

    VS 5.0 said second post,
    Even if no "young" died from it, they still spread it. Do you want to die coz some ignorant / arrogant millenial won't do what is needed and infects you ?

    If in my dictionary means "no matter whether." So he said in the first they are dying from it in the second he is saying no matter if they not dying they still spread the virus and that is also true.

    Both post he stated are going against each other its that simple. You need to pick up a dictionary and stop putting your nose into places without reading first. Maybe your nickname should be QUICK DRAW McGRAW.

    They probably contributed to Scummo’s re-election campaign!

    This kind of crap also shows that certain people shouldn’t be here as their ultimate allegiance isn’t to Australia but to the Chinese government!

    Our **** paper doesn’t come from China (it’s locally produced) but I bet it’s all going there!

    There is no possible way in hell that dunny rolls are still in short supply unless they are being sent overseas!

    We only make up 40% of the market from what I read. That's why we cant keep up.
