I used to run hospitals that treated necrotizing fasciitis patients. I am keenly aware that COVID-19 is a bad bug but definitively not something we need to worry about. I am also keenly aware that the early numbers, most of the first 100k deaths, were complete bullshit and were patients that died from something else but the COVID-19 box was a guaranteed federal payment with all sorts of bonus funds. I am also keenly aware that the bulk of those that actually did die from COVID-19 were already dying from something else and COVID-19 just expedited the inevitable, just as the flu does every year.
I am not afraid of COVID-19, what I am afraid of the a media that continues to propagate a narrative and not investigate the obvious. I fear them more than I fear my government, as the government is becoming a tool of the media.
