Protesting SLO will change those numbers lickety-split.

Nope, Trump’s fault, as is every single corona-virus death. We MUST crash the economy and elect Biden’s caregivers.

I agree with you we shall elect Biden!

Yay! More numbers in a vacuum to help instill fear and panic!

Meanwhile, it looks like no one gives a crap anymore, except for a few hold-outs. Imagine that.

Of course if the doctor really shared this information he just violated HIPA and can be in trouble. Though I agree they are twisting the facts to fit their narrative.

Positive tests for Covid do NOT indicate impending death, neither do they imply hospitilization. Case in point: 7 new “cases” but only 4 people in the hospital and zero deaths.

This type of “reporting” is journalistic malpractice.

The virus is a minor irritation for those who aren’t statistically supposed to die. For those who are literally at the end of their lives—and all of us will be there soon enough—this virus “might” be the final illness….but it’s more likely those people will die of something else, statistically speaking.

But like I’ve said so many times before…..the only symptom of Covid that many people will experience is loss of economic activity……and this is more a side-effect of the “treatment” prescribed by politicians and experts.

How about we focus on the positive? 256 people have RECOVERED out of 279 cases throughout our whole entire county! That’s a 92% recovery rate…sounds great to me.

Plus countless others already had covid-19 earlier in the year and also got better without requiring ventilators.

So please stay home if you’re sick. Wash your hands, etc. etc…

Stop living in fear! Re-open the economy. Open the schools in the fall. Stop shaming healthy people who choose not to wear masks. Enough is enough.

Where is the biggest area of the Mexican population, Paso and Nipomo, nuff said.

Extended families and 3-4 generations under one roof. This is why Italy was hit so hard. Similar family behaviors.

Ohhhh geeeee??? Really?!! Nooooo and they’ll continue rising! We opened too soon and everyone is now complacent
