Approximately 7,500 people die everyday in the United States. What is your point?
You know almost twice as many people who have died from Covid total, died from Tobacco in Canada just in 2020?
"Tobacco use continues to be the leading preventable cause of premature death in Canada. While tobacco use has decreased, a significant number of Canadians still use tobacco and cigarette smoking kills 45,000 Canadians each year."
I never heard anyone saying we should ban cigarettes permanently over the strain smokers put on our medical system and ICUs.
We never justified crushing human rights over deaths from second hand smoke.
Almost everyone in here has lost all sense of priority, proportionality, and rationality.
Maybe if cigarette smoke destroys health systems like what’s happening in India right now, then we should ban smoking.
In India the death rate is dropping significantly and their death rate was already one of the lowest in the world.
They have a crisis in India because their medical system was underfunded, because they have done very little preventative care between when Covid is diagnosed and when they come in for emergency treatment, because they didn't stockpile any oxygen despite their incredibly large population, because they didn't pursue any anti-obesity or anti-vitamin D deficiency strategy from the beginning, and most of all because they all CHOSE to take the risk of being in public and many chose to take the risk of meeting up for Holi which was in March, as well as other religious festivals in April, as well as huge political events across the country because of their upcoming election. That is their human right. People must be allowed to have control of their lives and be left alone to exercise our human rights. Death is an unavoidable part of life, and human rights supersede any individual's life. They are for everyone, forever.
