I had this idea in March and it was discussed with friends.
Didn't do it though.

If managed properly I think these are a good idea.

If you are young or healthy, get it, isolate yourself for 3 weeks and then go and do whatever you want. At least then you can be sure you won't infect anyone else. There's a very small chance your immune system might get over excited and kill you but nothing is truly safe.

Government could then produce Covid cards for anyone out and about which says I've already had it and isolated myself.

It would have been and remains utterly stupid- when we do not have clear research on levels of immunity, or the prospects of passing it on to others. Especially at a time when there was real danger of overwhelming health services, and a percentage of any partaking were inevitably going to end up in hospital....

This is what concerns me with th immunity passport that is being discussed to allow more people to get back to work.

My concern is that a number of younger fit and healthy people will try to get Covid, believing they will recover quickly with no issues so they can have free reign to return to a “Norma life”.

99.32% of all Covid-19 deaths are in people over 40.
So all under 40's should be allowed back to work immediately.

The logic behind the lockdown was to protect the NHS.
Nobody wanted a healthcare system that couldn't cope.
Within 3 weeks of that lockdown deaths peaked and the curve was flattened.

And can you guarantee those under 40 won’t interact with anybody older or people who have underlying health conditions?

Unless you are advocating we go down the Logan’s run route.

No, nobody can guarantee anything. Even during this lockdown young and old have been mixing in supermarkets.

You take personal responsibility, it shouldn't always be about the government telling you what to do.

No blacks though. They are 4.2 times more likely to die of covid related deaths than whites.

So only white under 10's allowed out.

Yes, you're right. Fewer than in the USA.

However, what about the people of all ages, including under 40s, who have not died, but instead suffered several weeks of debilitating illness, with possible long-term complications thereafter (e.g. permanent scarring to the lungs)?

I don't know, what about them? I guess we treat them in hospital.
