There was so much misinformation, disinformation, conspiracy theories, and lack of evidence in the claims. Much of it was tribal in nature and nothing that you could say with any degree of certainty to be true.
It all underscored what Daniel Schmachtenberger has to say about the pollution of our global info-ecosystem..
I determined to write something in my blook about the pointlessness of casting blame. But when I got up and switched on my laptop, there was this tremendous article Learning Not Blame -- Inquiry Not Inquisition. by Bill Kaplan.
In the article, he asks this:
Is now the time to focus on the politicization of the pandemic and its tragic consequences?
There will be plenty of time to address accountability later but more effectively from the perspective of what lessons we learned about forecasting, research, threat analysis, planning, mitigation, logistics, policy and the other knowledge areas that form part of what should be a transparent and multidimensional response to a future threat.
The population can make accountability decisions at the ballot box based on the facts.

Blame is useless. Learning not blame.
