FlightCharter Update | COVID-19 Facts vs Media Hype

We don’t know about you, but here at FlightCharter, we are finding it hard to sort out the facts from the media reports.

Some TV news programmes seem to be presenting a hyped up a set of data that arguably makes the situation look worse than it is. If they had charted the data as it was, the results would not have been as newsworthy.

FlightCharter CEO David Mackey has felt frustrated by what he is seeing on the news. He decided to put sourcing private jets on hold for a few minutes to instead source data directly from the Department of Health (Australia). He then went on to chart the data himself.

David says, “I wanted to see the curve that we need to flatten”.

The charted data is shown below and we hope that you will find this information useful and informative.
