Were one to only get one’s data from the media, one might think that the Coronavirus is running rampant through the population…which it isn’t. One might think that deaths were rising exponentially…which they aren’t.
The reporters continuously tell us that the hospital intensive care rooms are at risk of being overwhelmed….which, according to the media, is a risk that has been present since March….They tell us that those portions of the hospitals are at 85% capacity…which is true….The Intensive Care portions of hospitals are nearly ALWAYS at a similar percentage….If not, the hospitals lose money…(Yes, some elective surgeries that might have put patients there to recover are being deferred, but still, this is misleading reporting).
It appears to me that there is a concerted attempt to, if not lie to the public, at least mislead us as to how severe this “crisis” is.
Fuck it, I’m studying for my Instrument checkride, and, if it doesn’t rain, I’m gonna go clear my mind by
turning money into smoke and noise doing some precision paper punching.
