Yet More on Covid-19’s Risk to Young Adults

(Don Boudreaux) Tweet Here’s a friendly response to Café Hayek commenter Rob Read: Mr. Read: Thanks very much for commenting on the Café Hayek post in which I criticize the authors of a New York Times op-ed for failing to put into context Covid-19’s danger to Americans ages 25-44.


Not only are Covid’s dangers to young adults, by the authors’ own admission, tiny relative to Covid’s dangers to the elderly, Covid’s dangers to young adults are tiny relative to many other dangers that Americans routinely encounter yet never use as an excuse to pummel civilization.
