Two weeks ago I reported that there was a conservative talking point making […]
They say you can’t fix stupid. Apparently, you can’t quarantine it, either.
The same thing happened with H1N1 swine flu. The number of official cases confirmed by test at the time was 1.6 million, later retrospective analysis suggests there were more like 1.4 billion 3 orders of magnitude higher.
Fox news pundit Candace Owens cherry picked the larger figure and compared it without explanation to the current test confirmed COVID numbers in order to downplay the seriousness of COVID (no lockdown there, right?) – simultaneously also, Obama guilty (wtf?).
To put that in context, case fatality rate at the time was estimated by the medical experts at 10x LESS than seasonal flu, plus there was a vaccine ready to use 6 months later.
I am certain that we are still only seeing the tip of the iceberg here, plus of course – it’s not over.
