Can we please stop focusing on (or really even counting honestly) cases and start looking at only hospitalization (when the hospitals become inundated) and death? At some point we must normalize covid as we will live with this just like everything else. We no longer count cases of many other diseases/viruses. It simply just further perpetuates everyone's fears, when the vaccine has apparently lowered hospitalization and death overall anyway. We all get sick.

Further - with Merck and Pfizer pill coming out there will be a further 89% reduction in both...which should call for an end to the constant mandates/rules and overall suffering.

Why don't you post any of my comments?? Is it because it hits home to some home truth? Or doesn't it fit in with your far left wing narrative? I'm baffled that reporters don't want to report the truth. Only cut and paste propaganda. But in this day and age most people realise nothing is true journalism anymore.
