TOPIC: CoronaVirus.

CoronaVirus. 2 Months, 1 Week ago  
Why have I being going on about this since Wuhan in January?
My theory that, as with so much else such as sex abuse claims, the media inflated this from a trivial virus (but deadly to a few vulnerable people) into a plague that would "kill 50 million".
Like false claims of sex abuse, it's a good story. Like sex abuse (and many other "crimes") it gets exaggerated to make a better media story and, in the case of police and prosecution, to inflame righteous indignation in jurors and judges and get a huge sentence for a trivial offence.
So a tragic accident like losing a temper in a kitchen, striking out, a fall, hit head, death - it becomes, inflated, premeditated murder.
That's the problem with Covid19. Only 4 countries seem to have fallen for the media image and reacted thoughtlessly.
Others also used sledgehammer tactics but earlier, more targeted, with better results, fewer deaths.
If, now, you agree that this is a trivial virus for 95% of those infected, you will also agree that dealing with it demands concentrated protection and treatment. Far more money spend on security and medical upgrades in care homes & hospitals. Far less money wasted by extreme measures. Far fewer deaths as repercussions to lockdown.
If you DON'T agree with my take and DO still feel the media was honest and truthful, I would urge NOT to send your kids to school; NOT to stop self isolating; NOT to go out. The chances of your death and that of others are enormous, if the media "plague" is to be believed. If the experts' "model" is correct.
We shall see solid proof of which side is right this month.
If, in June, the DeathFour have thousands more deaths in the second wave, it is far more lethal than I think (and I'm no expert).
If only a few more hundred die, I am probably right.
I predict, however, that unless they find a vaccine or treatment, the proper second wave will come, like Flu, in the winter season.
I only hope, by then, politicians and experts have learned it is NOT a lockdown needed but concentrated, expensive security and healthcare improvements.

Winter has just arrived over here....
I've started to venture beyond the lagoon and get on with life... still trying to keep a bit of a distance (as much as possible... tricky on public transport..)

When International movement opens up, I wanna get to somewhere sunny and nice...

Why would the media inflate a story, when it has direct negative consequences on their own lives. They too have to suffer lockdown restrictions with everyone virtually under house arrest, and they personally have suffered financial loss. Particularly the Printed press has suffered huge losses, as people are going out less and thus buying less newspapers. People can get all the Coronavirus news they want from the BBC, Itv, Channel 4 and sky etc.

Very simply Robbie; it cannot help itself. Like the scorpion & the frog, it's its nature. The only thing that matters is a good story. Media never thinks about repercussions.
