The way experts perceive the current COVID-19 pandemic is one typical example of such a biased interpretation. Expert assessment of the situation should be based on facts and objective materials, not on emotions and analogies. At the time of this writing, the total number of people infected with coronavirus in the world has exceeded 100 million. The pandemic indicator reflects the total number of infected people, and not the number of cases. 80% of this number remain asymptomatic carriers of the coronavirus or have mild manifestations of the disease. And only 20% need hospitalization, which suggests that the vast majority overcome contact without any consequences.
