Recently, I was awakened to a dramatic What’s App message along with a video link that was self-titled, ‘Corona virus, rarely a cause of death!’ by a hardcore proponent of the Flat Earth Society, one that adorns and embraces our forum from time to time.
This video link was unfortunately taken down by Facebook and the non-partisan Fact Checker Data was then presented in kind so it could merit a worthy read:
"False claim shared by President Trump that only 6% of CDC-reported deaths are from COVID-19 is based on flawed reasoning - Health Feedback"
Whilst I have my own views on specific aspects and stats concerning the corona virus, upon reading the aforementioned to my colleague today, it was swiftly summed up in the statement, “You know, I personally feel obliged to confirm that some people need to really seriously question their critical thinking skills that otherwise resemble that of a Lab Rodent.”
In retrospect, I think he is entitled to make such a strong point, whether we agree with the flavour of it or not.
