How about just reporting the number of active infections instead of cumulative numbers which are meaningless but they are eye catching which is the whole purpose of this type of reporting.. Just like they never report the percentage of deaths of those cumulative infections which is only 1.68%. Government trying to manipulate fear just like their PSA ads which accuse you of killing people if you don't wear a mask. All propaganda to instill fear and then compliance to government dictates - Governor Brown..
