Senoufou BS: masks and armchair revolutionaries (80* d) RE: BS: masks and armchair revolutionaries 09 Aug 20

There are a few things to say about Sarah Vine's comment:-
One may not just 'cop it' if one contracts Covid19. One could suffer the most appalling symptoms, die gasping for every breath, be on a ventilator (not nice!) or finish up like my poor sister.
She got Coronavirus four months ago. She now has pulmonary microangiopathy, which means her lungs have very few small blood vessels left, so any oxygen inhaled cannot be transported. She has been told (just last week) by a hospital specialist that this will probably cause her demise 'in rather a short time'. She's in total despair, at only 64 years of age. She was as fit as a flea before this happened.
Also, one has no right to wilfully put oneself at risk when it will put others at risk too. One can become a vector and transmit the virus to anyone else.
And, the NHS is still struggling, and people should avoid burdening them any further.
Having heard of the appalling sufferings of my sister, I will do everything possible to avoid this virus.
While Sarah Vine may be perfectly alright about dying, most people would not want to die, and not in this way.
