@C: Exactly. How about the more than 2000 people who die every month on Thailand's roads? Mostly on motorbikes. Yet people are out there now with face masks on and no helmets! 20 people in 3 months? Out of 70 million? You're more likely to die from a coconut falling on your head. Really.

Good point-  traffic fatalities  are way down.  So at what point is killing off aging and diseased  by design? In the USA where socialized medicine is about to emerge- it really is the only prudent way to proceed after decades of getting Americas as unhealthy as possible to maximize health care profits.
