That's correct @Generalwelfare.

Now of course more people DO die, because some people do in fact have morbidities. But -- that assumes the current "Standard of Care", which is "go home until you choke."

For a person with no co-morbidities the odds of "choking" are extremely low. But for someone with them those odds go up a lot. This is where treatment, especially early treatment and prophylaxis, matters because if you never get to the "choke" stage by definition you do not die.

I only care about serious morbidity (e.g. in the hosital) and dead. Everything else is noise, and in fact infections that are not serious are to the public good since they build herd immunity in the population at large. A person who has a silent infection or a minimally-symptomatic one is actually helping everyone else.
