The drug addictions and deaths from that epidemic are also increasing weekly. Where’s the numbers on this? Isn’t this also a health issue?

“Where’s the numbers on this? ” In the article about drugs, this article is about Covid.

That’s my point. Where is the “article” on a weekly basis on the deaths and overdoses from the deadly epidemic of drugs. Aren’t those lives and the destruction that epidemic is causing worthy of concern and continual coverage? Or are those deaths in some way acceptable.

Please show me that article about drug deaths here recently and locally. I keep looking for it weekly.

Democracy Now every day on our local KCBX talks about fentanyl and drugs statistics daily, and the people to blame and all facts. Ask CCN to submit this in some articles common sense.

The article says that “cases have increased from a daily average of 67 to 9 on June 1st”

The correct number is “99 average for the the week ending on June 1st”

Interestingly, the average weekly cases for the week ending April 20th (6 weeks ago when the mask mandate was lifted) was 10 cases. 6 weeks after the mask mandate was lifted, the average cases per week is 10 times greater (from 10 average to 99 average)

The cases reported today were 210 for one day.

These facts were downloaded from the SLO County website.

Who is reporting these cases? Where do these facts come from? How is it possible to have that information? I’ve never once reported an illness…

I should have said “reported cases”. I’m sure the numbers are much higher because many people don’t report their test results or even know that they are infected.

Here is where you find the facts (if you believe facts)

*Sigh… We’re did THEY get the information? Is there a hotline I’ve missed that people are calling to say “I got Covid”? No, there isn’t. So….where are the entities in charge getting these stats?

Doctors, the ones responsible for the other ongoing pharmaceutical epidemic are who were trusting to report cases?
