  1. You may notice a bit of a discrepancy in these numbers. While expounding on the increase in cases, positivity, and hospitalization, a significant increase in deaths is NOT mentioned. Which means there isn’t one. Which means there’s no reason for alarm over these increases, because they aren’t killing more. Might as well get alarmed about an increase in dandruff cases.
