It seems a bit strange, there only telling us about the number of cases, and nothing about hospitalization or deaths. They could'nt wait to tell us that data a few months ago. Or is it just that the virus is far more mild now. And nothing more than a common flu virus. They have to keep the Hysteria going now or alot of people look very stupid and the vaccine is not necessary.
