We are bombarded daily with ‘exact’ figures of Covid infections, total, new cases, deaths, recovered …

I am telling you that a simple test and simple logic will tell us that this is totally surreal. Silly in fact.

A simple proof. In Amsterdam, The Netherlands, my daughter got sick. She made a home test and was positive. She suffered loss of taste and all that. After a few days she felt nearly ok, just a bit tired. She did not go to doctor and therefore her case is not counted.

In Indonesia plenty of cases are similar, except mostly they do not even make a test. Feel sick, do not bother to self isolate, because all the neighbors are sick too anyway. No body counts them. No body reports. In fact one estimate was published that probably the number of cases are six time higher than reported. My gut feeling is that this might be approximately correct.

Wish all those who are sick speedy recovery. Counted or not.
