    this happens because Maryland does not use the proper calculations for it’s numbers making everyone think it’s better than what the real numbers show, USE JHU formula for the truth

      Run! Hide! The bogeyman is after us! This virus has caused far less hospitalizations and deaths than the seasonal flu in almost all demographics. No matter how crazy you leftists think and behave it won’t change the real facts.
