That would be the risk, but I think those people really are a very small minority, that would be even further diminished by a call for public solidarity in an emergency.

Public Health information is political communication. They definitely lie to achieve political and group health outcomes. Their purpose is not individual health like a doctor and that became apparent to a lot of people during the pandemic. For example, they initially told people not to mask so they could keep the limited masks for health professionals. This made it apparent to many that they are liars that aim to manipulate us like we are children. It is no wonder many became paranoid and uncooperative after being lied to and manipulated. I wonder how it would have gone if they had been honest and asked people for cooperation?
