  1. I suppose this is a count of those who were tested. We don’t know how many more have the virus and either have it mild so they don’t know they have it or are just not reporting that they are sick even if they have it more severely.

  2. The statistic is a joke as they’re not testing people under 65. Just judging from my friends, family and neighbors who have the virus based on the symptoms, there are thousands of cases in Lakewood alone. I have the virus and it’s pretty miserable but b”h for me it’s been only like a bad flu.
