    1. The same ‘reason’, JW, that COVID-19 has been THE ‘news’ lead-in for more months than I care to remember: Media driven hyperbole. Never really been….into(?) societal manipulation personally, but…. 😉

  1. Just curious: Is there actually a medical definition of ‘probable’ cases or is that term simply used for increased FEAR/marketing for the various ‘news’ media?
