Non-issue. Create fear, allude to the illness and close saying there is no proof. Is this responsible reporting?

This is something doctors are keeping a close eye on. It came up and Anthony Fauci's testimony recently with regards to reopening schools.

Here we go for the fear factor again. Let’s take another look at this, the data, and what is really going on: Web Link

Keep hiding in your basements everyone and when you finally come out for air the real destruction from all of this is an economy that has been destroyed. Poverty kills. Is old Doctor Fauci the only medical person we are allowed to hear?

“In 1736 I lost one of my sons, a fine boy of four years old, by the smallpox taken in the common way. I long regretted bitterly and still regret that I had not given it to him by inoculation. This I mention for the sake of the parents who omit that operation, on the supposition that they should never forgive themselves if a child died under it; my example showing that the regret may be the same either way, and that, therefore, the safer should be chosen.”

Today ACPHD is reporting 57 COVID-19 infections in Pleasanton.
That is up two from 55 yesterday, up from 44 three weeks ago.
Obviously this virus is here, and cannot be denied!
