It's getting better in Australia and New Zealand. It's also warming up there, while cold weather is driving those in the Northern Hemisphere inside, where they will congregate and pass the virus.

569 a day in SK but 2,500 a day in Japan (which only has 2.5 times the population of SK). I'm no math guru but the situation's not exactly getting better, is it?

It's not getting better anywhere. Just read the news.

Maybe they should follow North Korea & China’s lead - lie about their figures

As it says in the article, this time around it's no longer churches of cults.

Quote: Authorities said the fresh wave is more difficult to trace and contain than early outbreaks which were concentrated in a specific region or among a certain religious group.

Why are the model countries who “listened to the science “ experiencing virus outbreaks?

Australia and NZ are experiencing outbreaks? Since when?! How many cases? How fast are they increasing?

That's what I was going to say. I don't understand this desperate need to go to church in these sort of times. You can pray anywhere and god will still hear you. Even muslims can pray anywhere.

Why are the model countries who “listened to the science “ experiencing virus outbreaks? Is the science faulty? Did it pass peer review? By the looks of it - probably not.
