Serious question, if doctors and nurses are dying from it, does that not contradict the fact that it is only for the old or previously unwell ?
As Dollis Hoop said, most of those who will die will be the elderly and those with underlying health problems. Nobody's guaranteed to be immune. NHS workers in the front line will be subject to far greater levels of exposure than the average person, and are consequently more at risk as a result.
Ok thanks.
Another thought. If those who are at serious risk avoid it for now, aren’t they / we just postponing the inevitable that it has to sweep the nation. That said China seems to be not getting any more infections, how have they achieved that.
Yes however have they managed it with a state-controlled media...

China has more or less eliminated new cases by using extreme measures: quarantine, lockdown, contact tracing. South Korea seems to be winning the fight too, using similar measures. The risk is that the virus will reappear. I think our own government's approach seems to be that the British people would only put up with such draconian measures for a limited period of time and then would start to "rebel"; the outbreak is going to happen, but if its impact can be spread out over months rather than weeks, the NHS will be put under less strain. Either way, this is not something that has been whipped up by the media, and the Chinese figures now being published are regarded as trustworthy by the World Health Organisation. I really don't think anyone is exaggerating the risk of this virus. I said that most people who die from it will be elderly or have an underlying health condition, but not all: younger people have died, including doctors and nurses in China and Iran.
