  1. I would not jump to conclusions as the numbers dont always reflect reality….lets take the Westminster population for instance where over 500 cases have been reported but we all know that not everyone was tested in the city. It would probably help to know how many in the city really got tested, at least once…, how many of those tested positive, how many positives ended up as patients in hospitals, how many of these specific patients needed ICU, how many of these specific patients recovered and how many died….
    I am not convinced that the way the numbers are tracked is giving us the green light to open up, or we should have stayed open to begin with! Just my two cents worth…..
