Quite right, Mrrzy. That distinction is usually buried here.
No-one is talking about "rounding" the numbers. We are discussing how the numbers we are given could be made more accurate. Inflating numbers in order to make us more cautious, etc., is just dishonest. You are misreading what is being discussed here. So what's new. By the way, the 70% increase in transmissibility (which is probably a good stab at it) has never been definitively put down to "airborne" or other transmission strategies in any percentage combination. Let's stick to the science that we actually know (which is what I've been saying all along).
