Covid media coverage - biased to scare people?

Recommended Posts

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-54648684

This amongst other carefully selected cases of people under 60 with a nasty dose

I notice they never do features about the enormous number of athletes getting tested positive after routine testing. All of whom had absolutely no idea they had it! 

Along with myself I know loads of people who have had it with symptoms and it isn't that bad. My kids barely registered it when they caught it from me - both had an early night with temperature then right as rain! 

The routine athlete testing for me is showing that we are hugely underestimating how many people have it/have had it and also over estimating how dangerous it really is to the vast majority of people 

I feel the BBC just pumps out scare cases to force people to lockdown who don't need to

I have put myself into political sub forum self isolation to avoid exactly this sort of nonsense, rubbish. Don't defile the decent forums with ######.

I agree, wrong forum. I’ll leave it to the thread author to decide whether to stick it on the COVID or BBC threads in Politics.
