I have two major problems regarding the treatment and reporting of the novel coronavirus.
First, the way it is being treated it will never go away. In every past epidemic the person with the disease was quarantined. Because only 2 to 3 percent of the population was infected, major society functions were not affected and neither were businesses, industries, schools, and the economy. Now there are indications nationwide that this may continue to the end of 2021.
I urge opening everything up but quarantining everyone with the active virus. Let the rest of society function normally.
The second problem is reporting the numbers. The number of people who have been infected may be right, but how many have recovered? If the number recovered is not deleted, the fact may be true that that many people have had the virus, but it’s a lie that that many are still in society. The facts liberals give are usually true, but they are presented is a way that is a lie.
June 25 I got the following information from the Panhandle Health Department:
There were 4,402 cases affecting 0.25% of the population and 89 deaths equaling 0.005% of the population. 3,610 had recovered and 703 were in recovery. That means only 109 had the virus that were not “in recovery.” So counting the deaths, recovered, and in recovery, there were only 20 “free in society.” That a big difference from 4,402.
