Lol really?? We had 7 new cases today. Highest in a month. Just wait, with memorial day and all the protesting BS, we’ll be staying home for months

They are? There were 7 today. Who knows how many there will be thanks to the Valley coming to the area this site helps understand how things are going state-by-state. we can see California is on the decline.


Since the Central Valley has been flooding the central coast for 3+ weeks, I think we can put another stereotype to bed.

Shocked in MB: wonder if findings from an Italian study are at play here. They’ve discovered that as Coronavirus mutates, certain deletions are occurring in its DNA structure making it less and less potent as time goes on. Very promising if true.

An other expert!
