Yeah, anecdotal is anecdotal, but after awhile the koolaide gets old.
YMMV but I have been around too long to believe the latest media narrative about anything and by this time have talked to too many people who don't have to coaxed into verifying my perception. The virus is real, the panic pandemic i.e. fear flu is uncalled for.
A while ago the CDC told us that it was 6% that actually died of corona; everybody else had 2 or more co-morbidities. But that got left in the lurch a long time ago. Too much money and clicks to be made from all the fear porn.
Speaking of which, paying the hospitals down here 13K for a CV diagnosis and 39K if they went on a ventilator when the tsunami they expected didn't happen, only encouraged them to grasp at diagnosing everything as CV.
But anyway. The world is going to end in 12 years because Greta and AOC told us.
Because climate change/corona/racism fill in the blank.
