    Sounds like we need better regulations

    Right. We could have iron clad proof it was deliberately engineered and released by some country's bioweapons lab, or we could discover conclusive proof of animal origins and trace back the first cases. Either way, we'd still be dealing with the same Delta wave here and now.

    Obesity matters. I'm not sure anyone said otherwise. What I think some people are objecting to are trying to use it as a deflection from why we should care about COVID so much. We see COVID's ongoing major impacts to nearly every aspect of society still. Obesity is a long-term societal issue that ought to be addressed but presents different challenges and complications. Highly infectious viral diseases are a different animal than non-infectious disease and morbidities. It's as simple as that.

    Obesity was causing full hospitals and completely burnt out emergency medicine staff and medicine shortages? Can you point me to this information?

    Iirc it's like 75% hospitalized are overweight.... But 73% of Americans are overweight so it really isn't saying too much. I don't know if the recent CDC talked specifically about obesity, but that's nearly 40% of Americans too. Even if every American was a triathlon athlete, we'd still have had hundreds of thousands of deaths and millions of hospitalizations. It's not good and it's a huge socioeconomic issue as well as a food "science" issue where garbage food is made as addictive as possible. But all that said, epidemic obesity has many negative impacts on society, but not to the level a highly contagious and fairly deadly respiratory virus does. We've all seen and are still living with those impacts. Comparing the two strictly on death rate misses a rather large forest for a single tree.

    Obesity is also an epidemic in this country and one that gets talked about regularly all the dang time. But it's not clogging up hospitals and burning out emergency medicine staff. And, importantly, that 1/500 is a counting stat rather than a rate state. It's only going to go up as time and deaths march steadily on.
