Life of literally every member of our society has recently changed drastically. These changes are related to “quarantine measures” which are supposed to suppress the threat of the deadly coronavirus COVID-19. Many people have questions about the adequacy of these measures. Indeed, the measures taken by the governments of practically every country in the world are unprecedented. The authorities justify these measures by showing media reports that indicate (in a way which is not quite clear to the population) an alleged horrible case fatality rate.
The information from the authorities is highly contradictory, and a number of the reports on the current situation contradict the previous reports. In addition, people see at least three contradictions in both the authorities’ statements and in the so-called “anti-virus” measures, that is:
- between the measures
- between the incoming information and the observable facts
- between the proposed measures and the previous human experience.
Since the authorities justify their actions by showing the numerical consequences of the “virus invasion” (case numbers) as well as catastrophic forecasts of this situation’s development, the first question which gets asked by those who still possess critical thinking concerns precisely that – the numbers and their interpretations:
“Can we prove or disprove something or draw a clear conclusion about the scale of the threat based on statistics published by the authorities?”
Let’s try to answer this question by analyzing the enormous amount of information (which the media generously dumps on us) and let’s try to identify the threats that the humanity is facing, assess their severeness and ways to fight them.
