  1. Because these are fudged numbers…

    Contract tracing BASED on the math alone makes no sense.

    39 ppl tested positive… Say those 39 rub shoulders with 10 other people and so on and so forth..

    It makes no sense.

  2. A total of 232 samples of which 184 samples were from the Ezra Long Laboratory and 27. Please fix this the numbers don’t add up.
