If your reference to "tunnel vision" is from this post:This is not tunnel vision.
The biggest issues were the refusal to recognize the threat, to ramp up testing, and to put in social distancing and other protective measures in a timely fashion. Remember that the U.S. has, by far, the largest number of infections and deaths, despite having 4.25% of the world's population...
This is anything but a binary situation. There are lots of shades of gray, the spectrum is wide, and it is anything but uniform. The vast majority of people survive COVID-19, and according to the government here, the risk of mortality closely parallels the risk of simply dying from other causes depending largely on age. So if you weren't germaphobic before, there's really no reason to start now unless you are already in a high-risk category.It's life and death.
Whether the announcer was a racist or made racist remarks in other broadcasts has no bearing on the point I was making. She just happened to be an example. I imagine there are plenty more. There might even be some examples by people you like. Every ideology can use science politically, it's been going on for a long time. At some point people will want their right to make up their own mind back, and I don't blame them.
