Doubts are rising over the coronavirus. Clearly, there is a lot of confusion and fear. Much of that is media and government generated.
Limited data are troubling. Yet despite the lack of data, government has made unprecedented moves to restrict freedoms and interaction. In the process they have jeopardized the national economy, producing unemployment statistics not seen since the Great Depression.
One would have thought that such drastic government reactions would be based on reasoned judgment and data. That does not appear to be the case as explained here and here by learned medical research personnel.
Doubts are rising over the coronavirus more rapidly than the “cures.” It is unclear that “cure” is even proper to use with these type diseases.
