Excuse me?...not having "empathy" for people who are obese because they have no discipline to excercise, eat healthy and lose weight? Lol. What about the smokers and heavy drinkers and drug abusers out there who trash their bodies and are also at a much higher risk of dying from Covid? Also feel sorry and have empathy for them? Lol.

We should probably stop responding to their diatribes.
There's a hint that they understand the situation at deeper level than their blathering lets on, yet they write 500 words trying to convince themselves of the callous alternative.
Compassion is a finite resource. There are only x number of doctors and nurses available to help the sick and injured. The data is undeniable about excess weight and COVID-19. We are lucky that the infection fatality rate is only 0.6%. One year ago, there were predictions that the IFR would be 3%. Calamity did not occur THIS time.
When it comes to pandemics, COVID-19 is an amateur.
