Here’s a story that does not fit. The graphs in the report above and this below from the FT tell some very newsworthy but uncomfortable stories:
The BBC has sent it’s teams scurrying around the globe looking for greater Covid crises than those in England in January. Brazil, the USA and, recently, India, have provide a form of infection-porn for their viewers with ‘images that may disturb viewers’ but, hopefully, keep them watching.
None ever reached the the tsunami of death in England in January. India, the most looked-at, seems to be recovering, off-screen, far below the peak in England, or Scotland for that matter.
The BBC, even in Lancashire, is not reporting this. The other MSM outlets have now looked away from India to focus only on the variant carrying that name, here.
