Numbers given only add up to 111. Where are the other 80?

I noticed that too. Perhaps it was San Luis? SLO was not listed in the past 4 days statement.

They also set a new record every day when a person recovers from the virus. Can you report on the new daily record as well? Just a thought. It’s alright to share good news too.

Hey guy – emergencyslo.org has all your answers. Don’t rely on one news source for your daily ingestion/infection of news. It’s not healthy.

SLO’s population is larger than Paso Robles, yet it has half as many cases.


What’s up with that?

Just spit it out Ralph. Say what you mean.
