The real number of people that have Covid-19 iis at least double the reported numbers .Many people aren't getting tested and have mild symptoms. Bullhead City is now on course for well over a thousand cases within the next few months.

Toby Cotter, close Davis camp and the community park beaches if you want to slow the spread of the virus. It is reckless to keep them open at this time. There is a reason AZ is experiencing and increase in cases, these people packing the beaches does not help!

What does normal look like, cases continue to increase & let’s see what we look like after the holiday weekend without mandatory mask!!! Who wants to bet on total new cases?

DETOUR > US 66

The "number of cases" is a meaningless number and here's why. There is no way to accurately calculate this number because there are a lot of people that never have symptoms (or very minor) and get over it in a few days. S ythat means an under count right? Wrong because the "contact tracing" is allowing the govt. to count every "contact" with a positive case as a "probable positive" and that is added to the total number of "new cases" whether or not that person ever gets a test. So the toal number could be hundreds of thousands high OR low and who really cares? the number of deaths is the real number that should be accurately reported and so far it keeps going DOWN as a % of cases and is now in line with the REGULAR flu. So this entire PANIC is just that............a PANIC. So stiop it and go on about your business or your school or sports while protecting those folks over 65 and in bad health especially those in nursing homes and assisted living that by the way account for at least 40% of the deaths so far anyway!

When is Mohave County going to have free public testing for Covid 19??

Let’s ask Trump’s buddy Gov. Ducey why the Trump adm. is holding up 14 billion Congress has passed for testing.
