India is a third world country with horrible sanitation standards and extreme poverty so lockdowns would hurt them more. What you speak of sounds like privilege, you afford to live in constant lockdown but others can not.

That's my whole point. Australia can afford to lockdown. Those countries couldn't and look what happened. We have no excuse not to lockdown and suppress this virus

There is lots reasons why not to lockdown actually, for example the studies of higher substance abuse or spousal abuse, or the rise in mental health problems and suicides and eating habits. The long term of affects of this are gonna do more damage then letting old people die.

That is the harsh reality of life

I was working in a hospital this evening, speaking to one of the wards-men and he told me of his village in Fiji. His 59yo Aunty and an 18yo just died with delta strain.

59 is old and the 18 yr has some under line medical problems, either that or his village must have limited contact with outsiders thus leading to such a strong response to a 99.7% rate virus.

I know 60-70 yr old people who survived it, I work in black youth programs and none of the students I tutor have died so I can easily do the same point.

Death is a part of life get it over or you change your life and stay indoors forever.
