Are we being told the truth about Covid-19?



Society has been questioning the whole truth about everything that has happened in this past year.

Growing up we have always been taught to be honest. But with the whole world struggling with Covid-19, has this proved society is not what it seems? Resulting in the ultimate question, is society being told the whole truth?

Covid-19 is a giant obstacle in our lives. How much has it changed since it started? Reports done by the Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have shown that more Americans have died of Covid so far this year than in all of 2020.  While we have had amazing breakthroughs like the vaccine, why is Covid continuously getting worse? Studies show the vaccine helps tremendously but not enough of the population is receiving it. 

“People need to step up and get vaccinated,” Dr. Facui said in an interview. 

Masks have been another controversial topic. Do they work? Many people are questioning this because of the growth rates. What can we do to stop it? Scientists have proven masks and the vaccine work to a degree. Covid tests have become a common thing, found in almost every city. However, there are some questions on if the testing is accurate. 

“’(Covid-19 tests are) not an accurate way of screening the general population,’” said a senior figure at the Department of Health and Social Care.

So does society know everything?
