  1. A 20% increase in cases, and no percent increase given for deaths? Apparently, people aren’t dying on command as quickly as the “experts” and “officials” desire. It doesn’t matter how much cases increase if deaths don’t. Any more than cases of dandruff do. Looks like this virus is behaving exactly as most of them do. Mutating into a more contagious but less dangerous form. The most successful parasite spreads easily and does not kill its transmission vector, aka host. Which is why viruses fade away. If they didn’t one would have wiped us out millennia ago.
