I don't know if I care that much about the total number of infected people to be honest. Almost everyone I know who got infected almost did it to themselves deliberately, by taking masks lightly and going on lunch breaks or socializing without masks. I have managed to avoid it by wearing the simplest of masks so far, despite the heavy daily exposure. It does seem like carelessness affects the careless the most, and had minimal effect on me. Early on we had contradicting evience and short supplies of masks, it's not the case anymore and in the majority of cases seem self-inflicted.
The majority of deaths are not from self inflicted cases. Plus all those trying to help are put in danger by all these self inflicted cases. The high number of infections is what kills the vulnerable and overwhelms the hospitals. Carelessness in this case, kills indirectly. It actually fits the description of "Death due to negligence"
