  1. Good news re; Covid-19 statistics.I want it to be “GREAT NEWS.” If only all people would have gotten vaccines, it would be great news re; statistics. I believe numbers of deaths declined do to Covid-19 vaccines. People whom beliefs are God and God alone will keep Covid-19 at bay,and or cure them,is all they need.,in my opinion aren’t thinking things through. I believe in God, however I believe God gave man the ability to become Dr.’s and Scientist’s who create
    Medicine etc. Then we have what we need to be a healthier people.
