Of course, it could be that the shambolic - lack of - response by the Bozos has indeed flattened the curve. But the persistent stories of gross padding of the 'death by covid' figures are still there, to be sorted out for accuracy. How can anyone have any certainty at all about just how many have died, above the usual levels, from covid? Especially amateur armchair commentators, as most of us are. Just take an arbitrary selection of figures which happen to support your preferred arguments on trust? Really?
This applies also to all who have had horrible personal experiences hitting themselves, or killing someone they love. All that's to be commiserated and respected, obviously. But it doesn't exempt anyone from the need for well-attested, proven facts - which are obviously in short supply right now, amid the welter of opportunistic politicking over the crisis.
The whole story has yet to come out.
