30. Fat shaming should be received as badly as any other discriminating ideas...

Switch out "Obese" and "over-weight" with "African-American" and "Mixed Race" and see if the conclusions and rationales offered up or even the use of labels and tags for that matter still stand up...or do they stand out under different focus?

If only 20% of healthy or fit people die - yet they can infect (and apparently kill) others by the bucket full - what's the point? Healthy or not, fit or fat, COVID-19 is a public health emergency and global pandemic because of its transmissibility and the ease of infection from asymptomatic carriers.

Once someone can say that the disease cannot be spread by the beautiful, thin attractive people then the rest of us in the unwashed, unworthy 80% masses might need to adjust...until then, outcomes and force factors are as relevant as time of day for transmissions.
