Watching the local TV reports for many months and to my shock – that outlet rarely gives the all the facts or explains anything
Why if the figures are not high! or high enough we eliminate everything but the biggest number which is not necessarily significant.
First case reported of Covid-19 January 25th, 2020
For instance: Friday 196 reported cases in the Interior Health Area – what they do not say is:
There is 1 new case
193 people recovered with a recovery rate of 98%
Only 30 went to a hospital. There are 22 hospitals in the region.
Lets just make one comparison
Vancouver Island HA – 10 hospitals
130 cases reported
Only 25 went to a hospital
No new cases
125 recovered with a rate of 96%
5 people died
