    The suggestion is that the media and government are ensuring as much panic is caused as possible by making it seem so.
    There isn't much news around apart from there being a pandemic, so what do you expect to be in the news?

    Funny that - what a coincidence - oh well at least it keeps the population scared. I call bulltulip.

    EDIT: That, of course, is on the assumption that the person actually cares / isn't a covid denier.
    Thing is if they had immediately come forward no journalist/media organisation would be on the hunt for them.

    And if they are a covid denier they will love airing their views.

    Badly filled forms should result in an additiona test performed, the Chinese way.
