    I do not believe they are testing everyone, unless your almost dieing, know someone, or happen to get lucky to be tested. From my standpoint those numbers can’t be accurate at all, because they aren’t testing most that have symptoms.

    In this advanced age we live in Why can’t someone come up with a vaccine?

    People need to start working together. Doctors tell patients to get tested then the people get told they don’t meet the qualifications.
