I would like to know your opinion. Do you think there should be a lock down? and why?

MAY YOUR HEALTH BE WITH YOUR 2.png

The reason for the lockdown is not based on biology.

You obvisously did not read my post.
Has NOTHING to do with Biology, IT IS FUNNY BUT REAL EVENTS.... READ IT AND GET A LAUGH BRO.

I did read your post. I guess my comment was too short to convey my full thought. The basis for the decisions for lockdown were based on other things because there was no good data from biology or medicine to advise a lockdown. Rather, there were sociopolitical forces which could gain from a lockdown. In addition to the stats regarding suicides that you pointed out, there are other causes of death and suffering which are greater in number than covid-caused deaths that could have been predicted.

my appologies brother.
In this link https://ourworldindata.org/suicide scroll down to the deaths per year chart for each disease.
Covid deaths are nothing in comparison to almost every natural cause of death.
