I shall add my comments to the last few who have commented. I have been on the phone to friends and family, plus I have spoken to neighbours and people in general when I’ve been outside, and I’ve asked them all the same question. How many people do you know personally who have, or have had Covid-19? So far 100% have given me the same answer: None!!
Authorities can report what they like; they can tell me 25% of the country is affected but if I don’t see it personally at some point I am going to call bullshit. At first I thought it was real but being waaaayyyyy over-hyped, being made to sound worse than it was; now, however, I am beginning to question the narrative completely and so, until I see with my own eyes someone I know who has got it, I’m in disbelief mode.
