Cases, cases, cases ... overrated statistic.

What's the current death rate? I'm guessing it's rather low in So. Korea because if it were not low, the if-it-bleeds-it-leads media would report it.

The death rate, not the number of cases, is the really important number to know.

-16 ( +2 / -18 )

All the restrictive measures working as well as always. Yes, case reporting is the norm now which is why I can see no end to this pandemic and the rather crude methods being used to "deal with it".

Exactly.Media massage everyday.Be afraid.Get vaccinated.

Cases.New cases.Over and over again.

No informations abouth deaths.No informations about how many % from deaths were vaccinated.

As I wrote today already-we are in position that news are selected and media knows what we must know ,how we should think and what we should "know".

According to media we "dont need to know" about how many deaths are daily in Japan/cancer,car accidents,other reasons than covid/,we "dont need to know" even how many deaths are daily because of covid/and how many % from total daily cases/ as it may looks "not so attractive".

Good headline sells article better.So yes we must get media massage everyday in their style.

Very strange times...

What's the current death rate?

The 7-day moving average is 3 per day, which is lower than the suicide rate, 38 per day, by a factor of 10.
