It was a generalisation, that is why I said "usually". However, on this particular site seniors will usually have more disposable income than people working; this is also true for many countries. There will still be a sizable population of Philippine seniors who have disposable income. Not every Philippine senior is in poverty; I've met quite a few.

Therefore it is ludicrous for policy makers in any country to lump one section of the population as all being equal in having poor health, or no disposable income; because in effect that country is preventing seniors from spending. They(seniors) would therefore aid an economic recovery. Seniors in any country do not automatically become contagious zombies ready to pass disease to all and sundry despite what policy makers may think.

The UK, USA and other countries also have some seniors living rough or in the poverty trap.

I do realize that this is not the UK with state / occupational pensions; and I do personally know Philippine people in their 80's who have to work or starve.

They are not doing it to stop seniors from spreading the virus - they are doing it to try and stop seniors from catching the virus. Seniors seem to be more likely to die than others.

Whether that decision is correct or not... I do not know. I have not researched it, and do not really care to, as the decisions are well above my paygrade.
