Leftists Claim Coronavirus Will Be Helpful In Thinning Out the Elderly

[Lifesite News] A UK columnist suggested that the Coronavirus may “prove mildly beneficial” from an economic perspective in “culling” the elderly.  

In his March 3 article titled  “Does the Fed know something the rest of us do not with its panicked interest rate cut?”, Telegraph associate editor and financial columnist Jeremy Warner stated that “there is nothing in the data to suggest the US economy is about to fall off a cliff.” He suggested that there may be a silver lining in the coronavirus cloud. 

“From an entirely disinterested economic perspective, COVID-19 might even prove mildly beneficial in the long term by disproportionately culling elderly dependents,” Warner wrote. 

The suggestion shocked many readers.
