  1. When will this lie that case count matters be put to rest? Deaths have been steadily declining for quite some time, regardless of how many new cases are found. It reminds me of my long past childhood, when those deemed undesirables were suspected of having “cooties”, even though they most likely did not, and even if they did, such is of little consequence. Much like THE CASES THE CASES THE CASES we are experiencing today. Without a corresponding death count, which there is not, case count for corona flu is no more relevant than case count for acne. And yet it is used to further destroy our lives at the behest of “experts” who are in passionate love with their new found authority.
