The “reality immunity” of panic porn
It’s hard to know how to have a coherent conversation on this topic. A quick smattering.
Globally cases are seemingly rising, particularly among the young, as testing is going up. The Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary, Yoshihide Suga mentions hospitals have plenty of rooms, most of these cases are young people “without symptoms,” and so they will go ahead with loosening voluntary restrictions (essentially all they’ve had), 5000 spectators allowed as of Friday at baseball games, with some distancing.
Then we learn, case numbers, acutely so in the US are being back-filled (more below), reclassifying months of old non-COVID or “with” COVID deaths, so we can hardly know if the stats are sane, or even for sentient absorption.
