Public health lessons learned from biases in coronavirus mortality overestimation

Yup, this whole thing really begets more questions all the way down and its frustrating to no end that people act like we have this conclusive perfect catalogue of scientific data that is unquestionable.

Anecdotally it seems like more and more data is coming out that the death rate, while still seemingly higher than the flu, might not be magnitudes higher than the flu as we all originally though, and it may even be the case that it doesn't spread nearly many times over than the flu as we thought initially. Which if any of those things turn out to be true...then this whole thing was a boondoggle of catastrophic proportions all because people were a bit too afraid to ask questions because the media managed to spin a narrative of questions=denier=you believe its a hoax=Trumper=bad=causing more COVID cases.
