Corona: The Basic Question

Are there some questions where you need to have mathematical knowledge to determine the correct answer? Where if all you have is rhetoric and no math, you will be blindfolded, walking in circles?

The answer to the question determines how you see corona. What I believe the corona deniers will say is that yes, there are some questions you need math to solve, but those questions are never, ever “political.” If it’s a “political” question than my rhetorical skill and lack of math knowledge can always determine which path is correct.

I say this: I don’t want to hear the opinions on coronavirus from all these commentators who haven’t done any math since they failed algebra in high school. I’m not going to show them any level of intellectual respect.  “Everyone’s entitled to an opinion?” I say no, they aren’t.
