  1. Friendly reminder: Indiana’s death rate as of today from Covid-19 is 0.000444626865672. Of the 2979 alleged Covid deaths, less than .01 percent are under age 25. – IN.Gov/Covid

    1. How many deaths for other reasons. Why are they still making such a big deal. We have that many from accidents, heart attacks, etc. But they are still harping on Covid. That’s the media and they want us to still be afraid. Then after the elections they will blame Trump for the economy and a few years from now, we will have uneducated, fearful kids who don’t know how to communicate. They cant hold down a job and the addiction and suicide rates are off the charts and the economy is till struggling. But hey. We protected them from the SUPPOSED risk to Covid.


  2. Where is the massive surge of testing from kids returning to school and colleges? There has to be 50,000+ IN college kids going to the big 4 schools alone. The number of testing a has been fairly static. Yet another question mark about the COVID numbers.

    1. Not sure about the tests but a big survey at Notre Dame pushed them to remote classes already. 36 Purdue students suspended by the university for attending a large party. IU is investigating a large off-campus party. Ball State is still considered the largest high school in the state.
