  1. What is the difference between “critically ill” and “severely ill”? Unless your audience understands exactly what you are conveying to them, you are not communicating properly. That’s Communication 101. The MOH has done a very poor job communicating to the population. SLT, it then becomes your job to make sure that whatever you are communicating to the people — even if you are merely passing on someone else’s report — is clear. Please confirm with the MOH what is the difference between “critically ill” and “severely ill”, and enlighten your readers! It’s good journalism to do so!
