Guest Opinion: Media should use simpler words to explain COVID-19

1 0 0

I just watched a show and medical discussion between Anderson Cooper and medical professionals on CNN talking about the COVID-19 coronavirus and the delta variant. It is typical of all reports by other newscasters and medical experts on other channels.

They use words like immuno-response, antibodies, mutations, herd immunity and the like. For a large percentage of the U.S. this has meaning. However, without seeming arrogant, I believe that a large percentage of the population is saying, “Huh?”

Using simpler, similar terms may go a long way towards educating those........
