Video Notes (By M. Taliano):
In the coronavirus pandemic, we’re making decisions without reliable data
• 13.55 on video. Iceland has an infection fatality rate of .03%.
• 18:55 on video: distinctions are not being made but need to be made: Are the deaths WITH SARS CoV2 /coronavirus or BY SARS CoV2/coronavirus? (Many of the people have limited life expectancies)
25:30 on video: destroyed economy leads to increase depression, anxiety, suicide, heart attacks etc.
• 28:00 on video: shortages caused by hoarding. Example of lack of evidence leading to wrong public strategies.
• 42: 14: Very high chance that we are exaggerating ·
• 44:30: Large proportion of scientific studies have flaws
45:00 crisis environment high chance of getting it wrong
• 55:30: exaggerated estimates lead to exaggerated responses and then domino-effect/bandwagon results
Perspectives on the Pandemic:
Dealing with Coronavirus, a fiasco in the making? As the coronavirus pandemic takes hold, we are making decisions without reliable data.
