The elderly rely substantially upon the younger for care and support - not all and not all of the time.Insulating the elderly is eminent feasible. They do it anyway lots of the time.
Events in care homes earlier in the pandemic demonstrate clearly how a single incoming infection from (probably) visiting relatives or care staff can spread. Complete separation of the elderly would only be achieved through denial of all external contact.
You may think this acceptable - you are entitled to an opinion. The alternative of denying the young work, income and a social life is an equal and opposite extreme and equally unattractive in my view.
So we end up with compromise policies which the intolerant or those with more extreme views (you??) find difficult to accept.
