  1. I take exception to the line: “stay home IF YOU FEEL SICK” Covid19 is transmissible when asymptomatic. Our county hospitals are on DIVERT status! People must ALL stay home! Please clarify we have entered true crisis phase w hospitals shut. ALL MUST STAY HOME FOR ALL TO BE SAFE.

    REPORT THIS!!!!!!!!

  2. For what’s going on they are saying at least another week or so to hit peak. Everyone be safe just take caution.

  3. “All must stay home.”

    Cite the law that requires this.

  4. “Total (Cumulative) Positive Cases since Inception” is largely a useless number.
    What is the count of Resolved “cured” Cases?
    What is the count of CURRENT OPEN cases (Total positive – Total Resolved)
    What is the daily average positive case count – Is it steady, declining, increasing?
    How does this compare to the daily number of tests? Is the tested to positive test ratio remaining constant? increasing? decreasing?
    How does this compare to the daily number of resolved cases? Is Resolved to positive case ratio remaining constant? increasing? decreasing?
    The ONLY use that the “Cumulative Positive Case Count” has is to rachet up fear and hysteria. (and then use that fear and hysteria to implement an agenda)

  5. Another two weeks away the wave will pass, well we are up. Time will tell. We need to be patient and smart. Not just go back to work and walk around Like nothings going on.
