I always want to double check claims made on the internet, particularly tweets.
This one seemed like one I should check out.
I was dismayed to read this from the Scottish Public Health department-
I thought to myself, “you can’t trust anything someone says on the Twitter.”
But something told me not to give up on digging.
And I found this–>
When I looked I saw that there were more cases of people with Covid that were vaccinated than not. This flew in the face of their headline.
I couldn’t figure out what was going on.
But the blurb under the chart tells you what they are doing.
They are separating the population into vaxxed and unvaxxed, instead of the total population, and prorated it to make it seem like more unvaxxed are getting ill. Since the unvaxxed is a smaller demographic than the vaxxed, they are saying that the picture for the unvaxxed is much more dire, rather than focusing on the amount of vaxxed that are getting ill.
Kinda misleading. Maybe not, I dunno. What do you think?
