The press seems to suggest that cruise-ships and nursing-homes are hotspots for Covid-19 morbidity. Is that really so? And if so, are there common denominators between the two?

    Who says the infection rates in those places are higher than elsewhere? – Carey Gregory Jul 30 '20 at 13:18

    COVID-19 is a disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which is a strain of coronavirus. I don't know if that's what you're trying to say, but it's rather beside the point. My point is that your question lacks prior research. Again, who says the "sickness rate" is higher in nursing homes and on cruise ships? Can you cite an example? – Carey Gregory Jul 30 '20 at 14:32
  • The press says so. Who do you quote saying that that is wrong? Besides the error in the first two sentences, the rest is accurate, isn't it? – Constantthin Jul 31 '20 at 0:28

    There are only two sentences in your question, so I don't know what you mean by "the rest." You've been here long enough to understand the site's requirements for questions. All you had to do was add a link to a claim that caused you to ask the question. – Carey Gregory Jul 31 '20 at 1:02
  • You commented on my comment, and I referred to the reminder of my comment, not the question. – Constantthin Jul 31 '20 at 1:03
