How damaging has the faux hysteria emanating from the media over the coronavirus been? If a new poll from Franklin-Templeton Gallup is an indication, the result has been making most of the country completely ignorant of the scientific facts regarding the current pandemic. Not coincidently, the false perceptions that now abound just so happen to play right into left-wing desires, like perpetual lockdowns and keeping schools closed.

Brit Hume shared some of the results of the study in question this morning. They are either mind-blowing or mind-numbing depending on your outlook.

These results are nothing short of stunning. Mortality data have shown from the very beginning that the COVID-19 virus age-discriminates, with deaths overwhelmingly concentrated in people who are older and suffer comorbidities. This is perhaps the only uncontroversial piece of evidence we have about this virus. Nearly all US fatalities have been among people older than 55; and yet a large number of Americans are still convinced that the risk to those younger than 55 is almost the same as to those who are older.

The biggest eye-opener is how completely vapid Americans are when it comes to knowing the risks related to COVID. Americans actually believe that those 44 and younger make up 30% of COVID deaths. In reality, if you are under 45, you are more likely to die from the flu because the death rate is so low. On the other end, Americans underestimate the risk to seniors, which actually do suffer from a very high risk from the coronavirus.
