    We destroyed the economy with a lock down but tomorrow we allow a mass demonstration LMAO. If it’s ok for 2000 people to congregate tell me OBA and PLP, why do we have social distancing rules in place? The numbers will jump up and you only have yourself to blame!!!!!!!

    • Mike Hind says:

      Are you REALLY speaking out against a #blacklivesmatter protest?

      • Lives Matter says:

        I didn’t read it that way and we can’t have it both ways Mike people are dying and more will come. One of my friends family members caught Covid-19 and passed. They said it was a sad death because the family were not allowed to be at the bedside as a measure to prevent the virus from not spreading to the public. We closed down the country and practice social distancing and weeks later we are marching in a parade shoulder to shoulder. George Floyd’s death was horrible as he cried for his deceased mother and black lives matter. Now we need to live, it’s a waiting game because the virus didn’t magically vanish.

  2. Ringmaster says:

    Can someone explain these numbers? On June 5 there were 18 active cases and 114 people had recovered. On June 6 active cases dropped to 11, a reduction of 7, but recovered only went up 3 to 117. What happened to the other 4?

  3. Iron Fist On Businesses says:

    If hundreds can gather for a protest, why are businesses being punished with rules and over the top regulations including “by alphabet” restrictions etc.
    It’s time that all businesses simply open and let the legal challenges begin.
