A reminder of the best ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • Maintain a social distance of at least 6 feet.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when unable to remain about six feet apart.
  • Stay home when you are sick, or if you are not an essential employee.
  • Stay at home if at all possible.
  • Avoid close contact with anyone who is sick.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then immediately throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Beware of false rumors and attempts to discredit COVID-19. It is not a hoax. Check reliable sources when new information comes out.

On Friday, 8/28/2020, the CDC quietly updated the Covid19 deaths. They determined that only 6% died solely from the virus. In real numbers, of the 153,504 deaths, 9,210 were solely from the Covid19 virus, the remainder had comorbidities. Will the Mohave Health department be doing the same thing? We need to know real numbers, not inflated numbers.

It seems cases are rising since they re-opened the parks and beaches.

DETOUR > US 66

Narantha: PLEASE read ChrisY and DETOUR posts. The "numbers" are ALL inflated and vastly inaccurate. This entire "health crisis" will go down in history as the biggest scam played on the U.S. citizens ever.

DETOUR > US 66

"The case fatality rate is 6%?" That it a flat out misleading "statistic" at best and fraudulent at worse. 94% of ALL so-called "COVID" death patients had significant underlying conditions including heart failure and pneumonia and the primary cause of death was NOT COVID but the underlying condition. Also up to 85% of "positive" tests had so little virus present that those patients had no symptoms and MOST IMPORTANTLY were NEVER infectious to others. What this all means is ALL numbers relating to this PanicDemic in the U.S. have been inflated incredibly over actual sicknesses and deaths PRIMARILY due to COVID. This is one time I wish Hillary Clinton or Obama or Biden would have been President because you would have heard about COVID about as much as H1N1 in 2008-2009 which was nothing.
