    Your headline is totally misleading. 378 new cases in 4 days is not indicative of it slowing down. Covid will be with us for a long time. Like Polio, it will only go away when we are all vaccinated. Why don’t you push that? Are you afraid of angering the right wing base? Anti-vaxxers complain that it’s a plot to control us…if there is a plot wouldn’t it be just as logical to think the gov’t. is trying to eliminate right wing anti-vaxxers? It seems to be working…Don’t get vaccinated…and you will die…
