  1. Using a test that is completely inadequate for this use, as stated by its inventor on multiple occasions, we are supposed to sacrifice our economic, social, and mental health on the alter of “THE CASES THE CASES THE CASES!!”. Even though using the totals put forth by this article, the deaths in
    Boone County divided by the cases in Boone county gives us an infection fatality rate of 0.0025%, which is far below the rate for ordinary influenza. Given that this demonstrates there are no facts involved in the projection of fear we suffer, this can only be described as a religion, or a cult if you prefer, based on belief and faith. No facts required.
