    Because there are always idiots, people with low IQ's. I generally hate young people, because they dont have sore backs and can drink without hangovers, but mostly I've seen them being careful and self isolating.

    A small percentage obviously think behaving like an idiot is a laugh. I don't think that's representative of a significant amount of young people though.

    Because nobody has caved their skulls in yet.

    Mostly old people and/or those with underlying conditions were the ones who died but their figures showed some healthy young people died as well.

    Problem is because of the UK government mantra that it is the old and vulnerable at risk, healthy young people in the UK have not understood this could kill them as well but just much less likely to. Healthy young people also don't understand that they could be a superspreader of the virus hence them not taking it seriously.

I’ve been seeing some stuff from various sources about the possibility that the current accepted wisdom that it’s mainly old people who are at serious risk is incorrect, being based on statistics from Wuhan that may have been skewed by the reporting methodology adopted, by demographics, or even just by statistical chance, and that younger people may not be less vulnerable after all.

    But I’m as much of an expert on these matters as any other contractor, i.e. not at all, so that might be rubbish
    You mean blatant lies, like the Chinese claiming there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission?

    It is awful, and hopefully a stark warning to younger people who think that if they catch corona they will be unaffected.

    Bigger worry is they will pass it on - and the number of people who will end up in ICU when the NHS is already at breaking point.
