Why does everyone always claim others are saying young and healthy people CAN'T get covid and it be severe? We are simply saying they have a tiny chance. Which is true.

If overweight people are statistically more likely to get in a car wreck, that's pure happenstance in statistics. If someone is more likely to die of a virus because of being overweight, those two things are directly related.
