Wow! A 3.5% mortality rate. We have a 96.5% chance of survival. Not too shabby.

The more tests that are done, the more “case” numbers will increase. Period.

There remains very, very few people who are actually sick with/from Covid and only one death of a person with Covid, although that person was statistically going to die anyways, same as most of the deaths from/with Covid.

Bottom line: This is a giant nothing burger. There is no statistical increase in deaths. Quite the contrary, there is an overall DECREASE in deaths this year compared to the last several.

All they’ve done is shift the causes of death on the certificate and thus into the mcdata base.

Lake of the Ozarks on Memorial day was supposed to be a super-spreader event. Zero cases.

Liberty University never closed…..dozens/scores of students were slated to get sick and die…..Zero cases.

Are we really this gullible? Is our ability to think and reason 100% subject to the media’s signalling? Have we totally lost our minds along with our rights?

“This is a giant noting burger.”

Good to know. I’m sure you’re right so I just booked my airline ticket to Tulsa for the Trump rally next week. Got a new MAGA hat! What could go wrong???

All you naysayers, told ya! What’d you expect, thst its gonna just go away? Lol fat chance. Only gonna get worse now that we’ve relaxed, allowed the protesting BS in

Are the consequences of the Holiday weekend about to hit us?

And probably the protests….

It was most certainly not the looting protesters, they all were wearing masks and practicing social distancing.

or do we have to wait 10 -14 days for the post protest spike?

..or of the protests
