  1. Covid cases, or positive tests? Not the same thing, especially given the 50% false positive rate.
    Deaths FROM covid, or covid related deaths with comorbidities?
    Really hard to ignore the complete lack of transparency during this pandemic.
    Also really hard to ignore how similar sars and covid are/were (both covid/coronaviruses) and how drastically different they’re being dealt with. Any SARS was more deadly with a 10% mortality rate.
