  1. It’s time to address the deceptive headlines we are seeing here… the fact is… and it is a proven fact… that deaths due to the covid19 virus are virtually zero ! Simply having the covid corona virus antibody in your system is not proof that one succumbed from the virus- so why report it as such- that is deceptive and manipulative reporting.

    However-“deaths associated with covid19” is clearly more accurate. As I mentioned on an earlier post- the state of Oregon appears to be desperate to make a case for destroying the state economy with no game plan to fix it- and no money coming from the state employment offices… the OHA is no longer reporting on “Influenza Like Illnesses”- it is now “Covid like Illness”- obviously a blatant attempt to ack up the covid data- even though more than 120,000 negative tests for corona would suggest our real problem is the seasonal flu- recorded this year at “epidemic levels”… the Wuhan Corona Virus was never labeled an “epidemic” here in Oregon… maybe Democrat Governor Kate Brown can start her BS tour there !

  2. Yes, there appear to be few (and today, none) coronavirus-related deaths, but the fact that there are about 50 new diagnosed cases per day signals that it’s still out there and spreading. To me, no deaths implies that earlier intervention and experience from earlier victims have helped to minimize impacts of the infection through medical treatment. Kudos to the medical community and first responders. Now is not the time to let our guard down, though, or to falsely declare victory. “It ain’t over ’till it’s over.”
