    Today Baltimore City reports a total of 15,085 confirmed cases. Yesterday it was 15,236. The day before that it was 15,299. This is a running tally since the first confirmed cases in March. The numbers can only increase or stay the same. But Baltimore City is subtracting numbers. Today’s total is 214 less than it was 2 days ago. What is going on with Baltimore City’s reporting and how can their numbers be trusted?
