Fear Stats

"Data on hospital admissions were also extremely relative. Throughout the crisis, any patient who tested positive upon admission was considered a COVID-19 patient, regardless of whether they had COVID-19 symptoms or, let's say, a broken leg. At a certain point, the Scottish government changed its methodology and began counting someone as a coronavirus patient only if they tested positve and were also admitted with COVID-19 symptoms. The result? They were left with 13 percent of the original number of COVID-19 patients."
