I was referring to how the media is using those statistics, not saying those numbers are right or wrong, ignoring them all together even. There are a lot of people like yourself who read through sources, but some media sources throw out numbers in a headline with no explanation and people don't take the time to look and read what they really mean. Therefore those people who actually read it can make their own conclusions about what the numbers mean, where as some let those reporting the media make up their minds for them, which can lead to certain perceptions.No offense taken. I’m not sure what you mean about my media, actually. It was an academic study linked within this thread. I opened and read it. It basically concluded if suppression / mitigation actions were taken US hospital capacity would be exceeded 8 times over and 1.1-1.2 million people would die and 2.2 million would die if we did nothing.
