Exact numbers" are an oxymoron. Every measurement is an approximation!
and yet authorities keep reporting, hourly, exact, official numbers (for infections, hospitalizations, and deaths)
these numbers are *never revised, only added to
if you're right (and you are) then you've just helped me illustrate the on-going hoodwinking
Just to be clear, Coronavirus, even if it’s over-hyped, over-counted & overblown, if you die of it, it may not be the worst way to die but gulping desperately for each breath isn’t a peaceful way to go.
death is never good...I watched a vibrant woman shrivel up into an embryo-thing cuz of cancer...I've been witness to older family passin' away, not quietly......the inevitability of death, in any of its forms, no matter its pain, is **no reason to close down the world...protect the vulnerable (as they are willin' to accept protection) and get on with livin'
*sometimes, if you dig deep, you might find how some community numbers get revised downward, after someone noticed a discrepancy, after they make a big stink and get local media involved...but these revisions are far and few and strictly local and never are the errors discovered by the actual tally-keepers...always the errors are discovered by some paranoiac who didn't trust the powers that be
**but is is a damn fine excuse to clamp down on folks, strip 'em of their mobility, their self-reliance...to extend and deepen the scope of the state...the most devastatin' threat to the powers that be are those not beholden to the powers that be...what better way to non-violently reduce the numbers of those indifferents than to make them reliant, make them beholden..that's what beer virus is: the excuse
