The media seems to have stopped talking about CV-19 R-naught values

Early on it was estimated that CV-19 had a R-naught value of 6, which is very high “spreadability” score.

Now the media talks about these strains being some percentage more contagious, but the assertions lack supporting data or the rigor of R-naught values.

So we're getting less precise in characterizing mathematically how the pandemic is progressing.

The media seems to have stopped talking about therapeutics as well. What's going on on that front? Even with vaccines, we're still going to need therapeutics. It's all very odd.
