Media: Corona infection rates are up! Help! Panic! Hide!

virus, fear, hope


The mainstream media let us believe that there is a very strong increase of infections and even death. The particular thing is that every time a government wants to make decisions about corona, especially decisions, which will be unpopular, there are all kind of alarming reports in the mainstream media. And this is again the case. But is this true?

Let us investigate what is really going on. We take the official data from Data Repository by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University, which is used as the standard data about the Corona pandemic worldwide, and see if there are indeed strong increases of corona infections.

For those who want to see the raw data, I included the CSV-files attached to this article: [lana_download id="10767"]

But that's only a detailed view about the corona data for 7 days, and it doesn't give a general overview what's going on. Also, it only represents the worldwide corona data. Here are the so called temperature tables, which displays the performance of the battle against the corona pandemic per day.

Each day is compared with the previous day. That results into a percentage of increase or decrease. If the increase or decrease is bad (i.e. more infections), it's red. If it's good, than it's green or neutral, it's yellow.
