Here is further evidence that our isolation efforts should involve only senior citizens and the medically ill. This information comes from the latest CDC report on COVID-19 U.S. hospitalization rates by age group and from the latest Statista report on the number of COVID-19 deaths by age group in Italy. I'm using Italy's death numbers because Italy was hit very early in the pandemic, has a large population (60.4 million), and thus provides a huge sample size for percentages of total COVID-19 deaths by age group in a large population.

For perspective on these numbers, it would help to remember that 0.2% is 2 out of 1,000, or 200 out of 100,000, or a 998 out of 1,000 chance of not being hospitalized; that 2.5% is 25 out of 1,000 or 2,500 out of 100,000; and that 7.4% is 74 out of 1,000 or 7,400 out of 100,000, etc., etc.

AGE GROUP----COVID-19 HOSPITALIZATION RATE IN THE U.S.
00-17 ---- 0.2%
18-49 ---- 2.5%
50-64 ---- 7.4%
65-99 ---- 13.8%

AGE GROUP----NUMBER OF COVID-19 DEATHS IN ITALY
00-19 ---- 1
20-29 ---- 7
30-39 ---- 34
40-49 ---- 128
50-59 ---- 549
60-69 ---- 1,682
70-79 ---- 4,756
80-89 ---- 5,754
90+ -------1,469

Here is how these numbers break down in terms of each age group's percentage of COVID-19 deaths in Italy:

AGE GROUP--PERCENTAGE OF COVID-19 DEATHS
70-99 ---- 83.3%
60-69 ---- 11.7%
00-59 ---- 5.0%

I would guess that if we knew the death numbers by each age for ages 60-69, we would discover that the majority of the deaths in that group have been among ages 65-69, but those specific numbers are not in the Statista report. However, in many other countries, death rates begin to rise considerably at age 65, and they begin to rise even more sharply at age 70 (as we likewise see in Italy's data).
Here are the sources for the above numbers:

Isolating everyone is an attempt to protect the older and ill from ever getting it in the first place. No one lives in complete isolation.

My wife works in a human cesspool of millenials. One of those morons goes on Spring Break and gives the COViD-19 to my wife, who then then brings it home to me and it kills me. Whose fault is that?

Depends on how the chicks he banged were?
Irrelevant, like most libtard posts. Are you converting?
Just trying to collect the information to give you the correct answer admiral.

Hospitalization Rates

Deaths by Age Groups
1. People are still dying under age 60, and there is no vaccine to protect them.
2. How do you isolate people over age 60 when they live and work with people of all ages? You seem to think that they are all living in some nursing home and don't work anymore. That's light years from the demographic reality.
3. This is not just about who is hospitalized and who is killed, its equally about who gets infected and spreads the virus.

The best method to defeat the pathogen is to reduce infections to the point that they can be traced through testing and contact tracing. Those found infected and exposed to the infected are then isolated.

Taiwan never had to go into lockdown domestically, because they had enough testing and contact tracing early on to prevent community spread, plus they shut down the country's borders to travel. They only way to get to where Taiwan is, is to remain in lockdown and wait for the infection rate to drop. Then wait for the testing ability to increase. Once testing has increased enough and the infection rate has dropped enough, so that any new infections can be tracked and isolated, then you can start to come out from the lockdown.

Right. I'm waiting for Axis Mikey to tell us that the numbers of deaths are exaggerated, too.

We're losing 1000 people a day, Axis Mikey.

Vaccines are bullshit.

The key in any medical issue beside a real disease or accident is to not go the hospital. That is equivalent to walking into a car dealership without doing your homework.

The best method to defeat the pathogen is to reduce infections to the point that they can be traced through testing and contact tracing. Those found infected and exposed to the infected are then isolated.
In the New York Metro area, the Kung Flu was initially spread as a result of a Rabbi in Westchester County and a Rabbi in Fairfield County. The local Fake News refused to identify them or the countries they fled to after infecting residents or how they were in contact with Chinese folks from the region of the germ lab in China. What if tracing is racist and stuff?

How about isolating only those that feel that they need to be isolated o matter their age
