  1. Boy what a headline. Ignored is the news that we have recently moved from having near 200 active cases to now 31 active cases. The trend is clearly good, but i gather that good news does not get clicks?

    • 🤔 Yeah you’re right and if it rains today it’s UPP , Lovell and let’s not forget Tabor’s fault .

      • You said it not me. Interestingly in the daily observer which is aligned to the UPP, the headline is the more positive news about the active cases being down. Even they understand the significance of the major drop in active cases trumping 6 news cases.
