Although estimates of millions would in fact bring the seriousness of the virus to perhaps its justifiable conclusion far better than tens of thousands.
The problem we have is that clearly many states are under reporting the amount of Covid19 deaths that they have for whatever reason and then the West is over zealous in their critique of it. So you will have right wingers bring (true) stats of people being a Covid statistic when the cause had nothing to do with Covid19 and then highlight these stories trying to justify the Wests isn't the worse. But I don't think it matters. If you just go by excess deaths, whether that is official or not - or whether you accept the data of being over the top or not, what the data says is there has been an issue with access deaths globally anyway and on that point at least shows people that Covid has had an impact which we should be concerned of.
