A False and Misleading Narrative

This from Joseph Bast:

Excellent piece.

 "THE "STRATEGY” of social distancing has been implemented through widespread shutdowns.

But what is the actual cost of saving a life under the current strategy? Does this justify shutting down the economy and creating chaos and misery in many human dimensions? Public health officials, working with an unscrupulous media, have feverishly constructed a false and misleading narrative that conveniently fits their apocalyptic view of a "crisis.”

This has compelled politicians, even those who would normally reject draconian measures to stifle economic activity, to engage in the most rapid form of self-inflicted wealth destruction and restriction of economic liberty we have ever witnessed in a free society.”

From the article:

"While reducing the number of individuals who contract a virus (which happens to be non-deadly for at least 99% of those who contract it) is a laudable goal, the consequences of government’s proposed "cure” for society may be much worse than the consequences of the disease they are trying to prevent.”
