What the hell do scientists know?

I'll wait for Joel Osteen's opinion, thanks.

Isn't around 30% of the world's population under 20 years? They rarely have severe cases.

Ironically, Subby, it's a fair criticism of The Lancet to say they are clickbaity, but medical journals use slightly different vocabulary for it.  "A reputation for being 'first to publish' is a double-edged sword," for example.

But, yeah.

We're all so boned.  And none of it had to be.  Thanks for gutting the CDC and killing the quiet monitoring and mentoring program in China, Trump!  No one could have seen this coming!  < eye roll >

In other news, some people don't know that 20% and 1 in 5 are the same thing. Yes, we know that 80% of people don't need to go to the hospital, and 20%, or 1 in 5, do.

From the top articles that pop up from june 4 when searching "The Lancet"

"The Lancet, one of the world's top medical journals, on Thursday retracted an influential study that raised alarms about the safety of the experimental Covid-19 treatments chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine amid scrutiny of the data underlying the paper."

So to answer your question, apparently THESE scientists know how to "discredit" potential cures for pandemics for political reasons.

Just sayin.

This says that the Lancet called an article that said these "cures" are dangerous a lie. So the Lancet is kinda on the side of "these are valid cures".

Just sayin.


And you are sayin that the Lancet is discrediting these "cures".

Have I got this correct?
