Here we have the BBC basically getting a number of facts across to the average reader:
1/ Covid-19 is similar to Ebola - one of the most frightening and deadly diseases in the history of mankind
2/ It's still with us and it's growing stronger
3/ We need to dress like astronauts to fight it
4/ Doom, doom, doom, etc
...and the reality... one death every other day with a little spike of two deaths every other day back in June out of a population of 84 million!
Forget facts. They achieved what they wanted from this piece. Fear.
