You would think public health officials and the media would want to make sure Americans were informed about COVID and the reality of the virus so they could take appropriate precautions in their daily lives and determine their own risks.
But then again, you would also think the government would realize it has no place dictating masks and lockdowns on its constituents so we’re not dealing with the sanest and most rational of times in the first place.
This survey though on how many Americans think COVID means you’re going to the hospital? Wow.
~60% of Americans think the chances somebody with Covid must be hospitalized are ~10x higher than they actually are

It’s almost as if they wanted us to be OVERLY afraid of COVID. Huh, wonder why?
This is a shocking failure of public health authorities and media https://t.co/XTE28gEEEb

No words for how gross and awful this is.
Failure? It’s a major victory.

Some would say this is what they wanted.
Pretty sure it went exactly as planned

I would say this is a predictable failure of public health considering their methods from the start.

In their eyes, a success. Few seem to want to talk about why.

Or exactly as planned. It’s much harder to control the mob unless they are terrified. This also applies to climate change.

Is it shocking though

It really should be more shocking than it is.
But we’ve come to realize we can’t trust any of them.
Failure? Or purposeful carefulness to ensure congealed approach for it? It’s gross IMO, I just don’t think that it’s by accident.

Considering how hard the media has beat them over the head with "overcrowded hospitals", it's understandable.

That narrative ain’t gonna keep itself up.
