there are some who say the wastewater is more effective than testing population. At this point you don't want to expose people who could avoid it by staying at home.

More worried about treatment than testing. So far KC has been lucky and I hope that the social distance works to keep down the numbers. The real danger has always been people crowding the hospitals.

Maybe put the easter link higher. People should really not inflict their beliefs on the whole community. That's why people need to keep putting pressure on testing. It's the only to let people stay at home and hopefully recover instead of continuing to spread it.

You'd think that the lower numbers would be encouraging. But so far they just inspire MORE fighting among Democrats and Republicans.

Too bad it's worth less than when she wrote it.

No test, no virus. Kansas City leadership is distracted with promising free rent to the newly unemployed. The employed are moving out of Kansas City. "Mayor Q" needs to focus on the few remaining employed or the 3rd district will have no one to foot the bill.

Hooray. Great news, daily deaths way down. Looks like an effective treatment has been found and is being used.

Time to end the illogical shutdown, return to our lives, and let those at high risk quarantine.

^^^ Don't completely disagree but without more testing we can't completely tell who is stick.

Testing was always the key in avoiding a massive shut down like this. I don't see Dems moving on getting that problem solved either.

Testing is pointless unless you are sick enough to receive medical treatment.

If ppl are getting sick and recovering with or without treatment and the most vulnerable are quarantined why is a shutdown necessary?

^^^^ Good questions.

If our media wasn't so divided by partisanship maybe someone could ask them louder!

From the root: Black People Have Been the Only Ones to Die From COVID-19 in St. Louis: Report

A misleading headline because whites in nearby Chesterfield have also died.

And that's also a one day stat not based on a continuum.

Basically media looking to stoke racial differences and both blacks and whites falling for it. Easily.

Not 1 recovery in the state of Missouri. How can anyone reasonable person look at these numbers and think they are accurate.
