TO OUR LEADERS
PLEASE READ THE FACTS FROM IRISH GOVERNMENT WEBSITES BEFORE DOING FURTHER DAMAGE TO OUR COUNTRY
FACT: The current life expectancy for Ireland is 81.5 years (See Endnote 1).
FACT: Median age of death from Covid-19 is 83 (See Endnote 2).
FACT: 94.61% of the people who have died fom Covid-19 had other underlying health issues (See Endnote 2).
FACT: A total of 20 people have died from Covid-19 who were aged under 44 (See Endnote 3).
FACT: 2 people have died from Covid-19 between May 24th and October 6th 2020 who were aged under 44 (See Endnote 4).
FACT: 76 people died from car accidents last year who were aged under 45 (See Endnote 5). For people under 44, almost 4 times as many have died from car accidents than from Covid-19. There is literally more chance of dying from being hit by a bus, a car or being in a fatal traffic collision than from Covid-19 – yet our government is not stopping people from driving.
FACT: In Ireland, if a person died from a heart attack, a stroke, cancer or even having been hit by a bus and if that person also tested positive for Covid-19, their death is reported as a Covid-19 death even if the death was not due to Covid-19 (See Endnote 6).
FACT: The graph below shows the mortality rate of Covid-19 to October 6th 2020 in Ireland (See Endnote 7). (The graph shows there were very few deaths after June 2nd 2020).
SURELY THERE IS ANOTHER WAY TO TAKE CARE OF THE FEW WHO ARE VULNERABLE WHILE LETTING OUR ECONOMY AND FUTURE SURVIVE?
These facts are not intended to offend – our deepest sympathies to those who have lost a loved one to this horrible virus.
