Stop telling us the number of new cases of COVID-19. It doesn’t tell us anything, it’s simply absurd. As Dr Cyril Wecht explains, you need to know more, otherwise the numbers are just used by people trying to make everyone scared.
The number of people dying from the virus hasn’t changed, in fact it’s declining, so if the number of cases is rising, it means the virus is far less deadly than they want you to believe.
Instead of learning just the daily COVID case counts, Dr. Wecht said we should be learning more about the people behind the numbers and how ill they are. “Tell me how many of them are ill; how many of them knew that they had any kind of Coronavirus infection; how many of them went to see a doctor; how many of them went to a hospital; how many of them were admitted to the hospital for further treatment; how many of them died. That is what is meaningful, not how many people have tested positive” said Wecht.
