Why report an “incomplete” “survival rate” that makes it LOOK like 12.8% DIE in this county from covid, when in FACT, the death rate for confirmed cases (IF all the “cases” are true positives, not likely) is currently 0.009%. Death rate Hardin county 0.009% of positive cases (about 12 per 100,000 population).

So I beg for a answer from those politically appointed “officials”, when will you read the actual science old and new, and what EXACTLY are your magic numbers to stop the madness and let us live?

Agree with James Hargan about this, it is like math is a subject they did not take in school.
