Over 4 days there have been 16 deaths in BHC. I’m curious as to where these people were located. Were all of these people in the hospital? Were they on ventilators? Were they treated with HCQ? Were they in nursing homes? Were they from our homeless population? The majority of these deaths are elderly so I question that these people were involved in July 4th events which is the basis of Mayor Brady’s weekend stranglehold on our town.

The Mohave County Health department has yet to explain whether repeated tests are included in the daily case count too. In addition are these new cases from the 30 minute Covid test or the one that takes 10 days?

We also need to know if these deaths are occurring in certain areas, & if so are these areas being quarantined. If these questions are not answered then all I’m seeing is fear mongering. Epidemiology is a science & as a society using epi tools we should be able to get in front of this virus

An update. I just read in another article that retests are not counted as a new case.

Phoenix is having a lot of testing. How about B.H.C. & Fort Mohave? Our lives count too. Enough is enough. The people need to work together if the leaders are not going to take charge. We need to stop this virus. It is not going away anytime soon so people better adjust to masks so othe rpeople can get on with there lives.

Thank you. At least there is one person in Arizona with more than a third grade education.

The Trump Adm is withholding 8 billion dollars Congress approved for testing three months ago. The citizens of Arizona need to ask the Republican Governor and McSally why this money is not being used to test the residents of Mohave County.

Is this the same Bullhead city that just gave hell to the Mayor for trying to save lives???
