    Now that they have rapid tests that are more accurate do they talk about the accuracy of the tests.

    What about the accuracy of the last tests? You are still avoiding that discussion, and still using the stats from it for your own gain!

    Who cares how accurate the tests are?
    Just lock everyone up, deprive us of our livelihoods and send us off to be homeless.

    Zero focus on how mild covid has turned out to be. Full throttle hysteria surrounding “case numbers”.

    Total failure of journalism… shills for an authoritarian leftist government = CBC
