I posted my first written argument about the coronavirus, opening with, “My main reason for concern from this epidemic are two unanswered questions: 1). Is China reporting truthful statistics? 2). Is it a “super virus” that leaked from a lab? We need these answers to fully assess the situation.”
The purpose of my article was NOT to convince one way or another, but rather retort against the narrative that the coronavirus was easily dismissed as “no big deal.” I didn’t believe that we had the evidence, either way, to conclude what this virus was.
In the article, I pointed out the real-life experiment that was taking place on the Diamond Princess cruise ship. By observing the hospitalization and mortality rate of the cruise ship, we could finally have accurate numbers about the disease.
If you haven’t read the article, it still has valuable information. Take a look.
