Seems plausible. The numbers are poorly expressed at best, for example
it says (but I presume doesn't mean) that all people hospitalised will
get permanent heart damage. It's also not clear whether or how much the
numbers overlap, I would assume there is a lot of overlap. And it
doesn't make clear that a sick person, especially a long-term sick
person, has (in general) a far greater impact than a dead person.
