Individual Covid Risk Assessments

We are now more aware of Covid 19 risk factors that lead to hospitalisation, intensive care admission and death. These could quickly be developed into a computer risk assessment much like to one GPs currently use to prescribe statins. Everyone would then be aware of their individual risk level. Those with high risk factors could shield and those with low risk factors could get back to normal. Of course individuals can work towards reducing risk factors if possible, losing weight, stopping smoking etc

Why the contribution is important

The current advice for over 70s takes no consideration of individual health. Covid19 is not going away anytime soon we need to develop the best way to live with it while protecting our economy, way of life and health.

    There arent many over 70's who if allowed out will be returning to work and contributing to the economy in a massive way. Given most our deathes have come from people in higher age ranges I dont think this is a hugely silly policy. Given the choice the government would keep everyone at home if it didnt impact the economy, but it does. So as we release restrictions because of the need to get the economy going, we should be allowing those that contribute the most and can do so in a safe way to go back to some normality.
