You can't say its cherry picking because nowhere in the article says that the recovery rate has changed from early estimates. I could see it called cherry picking if there was a different set of numbers that differed from the original.So here's what it says right in that link:
"However, early estimates predict that the overall COVID-19 recovery rate is between 97% and 99.75%."
Typical cherry picking of numbers to suit the agenda, just go with whichever end of the ranges helps make your case.
If the have new recovery rate numbers I'd like to see what those are. Until then healthcare professionals will go with the first predicted numbers.
I think those are really good odds of beating this illness. Better than other sicknesses, don't you think?
