And notice that they are not reporting any spikes in the number of deaths. This is just like the seasonal flu. You don't shut down a whole state for the seasonal flu unless you are power hungry.

Well said! Also, rioters seem to have total "immunity" as far as Governor Brown and Mayor Hardest...er, I mean WHEELER are concerned.

Maybe tomorrow it will be 345!

Who is doing the counting, the same people doing presidential polls I bet? The governor needs these numbers to be high to scare people!

DeathMerchant

Well of course! ALL test samples are sent to the state lab for testing. The dude that wears the bow ties and the plaid shirts, runs this farce. What better way to control the results ???

ItsPolitical

Never trust democrats OR a man in a bow tie.

DeathMerchant

All test samples are submitted for testing to and are performed by the state health agency.

ItsPolitical

Only sheeple bought into all the fearmongering and hype.

Test more, find more. Rocket science!

Let's put some perspective on this.

Of those 344 new cases of Corvid today, how many more are silent?

How many of those 344 will be really sick but recover at home?

How many of those 344 will require hospitalization?

How many of those 344 will have permanently damaged lungs?

How many of those 344 will die early because Corvid was added to their lives?

Squib

How many of those 344 will have life go on as normal

How many of those 344 will have cheese pizza for dinner

ItsPolitical

I'm smiling.

Just curious

[scared]What did they expect after all the rioting marches in the larger cities? Like it has been stated the "coronavirus is not selective."

ItzaSeakrit

Oh no - more people have a flu with 99.6% survival rate. 🥱😴😴

Prerunner

I'm 60. No one I've known has died from the flu. 2 people I know have died fron covid 19.

Were they old, obese or already sick from something else? Or, all three? Because, you are the very tiny minority, but if you want to live in fear, that's your choice. The rest of us are moving one with our lives.

People who wear masks should have "FOOL" written on the front. Because, that's what they look like.
