Covid-19 and Driving: A Valid Analogy

Those of us who have raised the driving analogy to argue against Covid-19 restrictions on most people have mostly been ridiculed.

And yet, driving kills roughly as many people every year as Covid-19 has killed in 2020 so far. If the severely injured are taken into account, the overall effects of traffic accidents are probably way worse. Traffic accidents also kill and maim all sorts of people whereas Covid-19 mostly takes out people who probably wouldn't survive any serious shock to the organism.
