Paragraph Labels

  3. There may or may not be a few more less important labels (Y Topic)

Look at this sample:

The WHO is right to note the many uncertainties. Do antibodies confer immunity and, if so, for how long? How accurate is the antibody test? What are the individual and collective harms that may be caused if persons with no actual immunity are certified for return to the workplace?

  2. Facts of X
  3. Consequences of X
