10. I doubt this includes the ongoing effective costs of supporting Long COVID or those permanently

disabled by the disease.

The long term costs could equal 2 to 5 times the initial phase, if not far more. I doubt that this costing takes into account the loss of medical practitioners and personnel, or the future cost of replacing them. Not to mention training additional people to care for those with ongoing or life-long issues and building the medical infrastructure to support such care.

I also doubt they have considered how future waves of variants will affect costs or resources. I likewise doubt there is any attempt to value the cost to the national economy either presently or in the future.
