I don't know why people rise to the bait of whipit's inflammatory posts. And have you noticed that the Mail's report is 5 years old? Yesterday's news.

Re: UK Coronavirus Deaths

In general it's not our generation that is keeping the virus going, it's the inconsiderate youngsters. The other cause, as in some Leicester communities and others elsewhere, seems to be housing in close proximity with multi generational occupancy. I concur. The youngsters seem to think they're imm...

Where would Catalonia be now if they had gained independence?
