CV Central - 2/28/2020 - "Censorship, Iranian Clusters, and ICU Units"
/

In our seventeenth episode, we look at the tightening release of government information as the White House puts a gag on the Federal government sharing information about the outbreak.  We see a story about the UK's plan to institute care panels and their contingency planning is removed.  A report from Italy shares how ICU beds are filling up as one Chinese province reports 14% of Covid-19 victims test as reinfected.  We look closely at why Iran is in such trouble including the likelihood much of their government is at risk from this virus.  We see that Covid-19 has probably infected many, hurt some, but caution against misinterpreting finding those cases that exist as seeing them as an outbreak beyond something likely already here.
