    Its time for the press to tell the truth

    Why cant the press tell us the actual truth. When they report the number of virus cases, it just keeps going up for any city. Yet the truth is most of them have gotten the virus, and now have gotten over it, and shouldnt be counted. Case in point, here in Lincoln, the first cases was reported over 3 weeks ago, and by now they got thru it, and should no longer be counted.

    Trump supporters are complete morons with a deep seeded psychological need to downplay this crisis in any way possible. Even the news simply reporting the infected numbers is some vast liberal conspiracy to make Trump look bad.

    Is there no difference between reporting "125,000 infected!" and "125,000 infected with 2,500 of those infections serious or critical and 2,500 deaths"?

    We walk by faith, not by sight.

    So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

    They aren't testing people that report having had the virus and recovered from it. Case in point is myself. I am not added to the numbers because I haven't been tested but my doctor told me that it's very possible I had it already. The numbers of people that have already been counted remain in the number of cases for obvious reasons. This virus may act like tuberculosis where someone will always test positive with a PPD test if they've ever been exposed to TB.

    Mystery In Wuhan: Recovered Coronavirus Patients Test Negative ... Then Positive

    Some Recovered Coronavirus Patients In Wuhan Are Testing Positive Again : Goats and Soda : NPR

    But some Wuhan residents who had tested positive earlier and then recovered from the disease are testing positive for the virus a second time. Based on data from several quarantine facilities in the city, which house patients for further observation after their discharge from hospitals, about 5%-10% of patients pronounced "recovered" have tested positive again.

    Why does the CDC keep giving the press false info to print? Bastages. Can't Trump make them share the real numbers? They're part of the executive branch.

    Those kids got older and now support Trump.
