  1. Dr shanik just released a video saying there is a 40 year old in critical condition. There is posted that 4 cases are in lakewood.

    If the 40 yr old was in the hospital I’m guessing for awhile and probably was confirmed to have the virus way before today, WHY is the 1st cases coming out today. WHY wasnt the public told about this days ago.

    What else is being hidden from the public.

    We the public have a right to know.

  2. John you’re wrong. It takes four days at least to get a confirmed positive. Until the test is positive it is not announced. There are at least fifty pending cases in my hospital alone. Nothing is being hidden from you. Listen to the doctors and the warnings, and stay safe.
