Kansas Saturday COVID-19 Spike Amid Social Media Rumors & Phone Spying Debate

This afternoon the Topeka Capital Journal does a great job of trying to myth bust rumors still emerging via social media.

However, their effort to fact check the debate on phone spying is a bit flawed given that government officials are, in fact, using "anonymized" data to track cell phone users.

Meanwhile, here's an important update on the latest number of rising Sunflower State infections:

Coronavirus cases jump in Kansas to nearly 700 on Saturday

FAIRWAY, KS (KCTV) - Coronavirus cases in Kansas jump to nearly 700 on Saturday. According to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment on Saturday, Kansas now has 698 positive cases of the coronavirus with 21 statewide deaths. On Friday, KDHE recorded the state had 629 positive cases.

700 cases 21 deaths. Sounds like a typical week of the seasonal flu and pneumonia.

^^^And you sound like a fucking Trumpkin. Too fucking dumb to understand science or statistics. Get your cough checked. OK Boomer.

Funny Millie expert. Non Boomers are responsible for the majority of spreading of Corona to "Boomers" and you may want to check the ages of many infected. Non Boomers and Not Trumpkins. For knowing a lot about "Science" your buddies must not know how it's spread. Keep up the expert typing.

This whole medical emergency and need for ventilators would be much smaller if people didnt smoke. Now smokers are going to take up vents, that some non-smokers need to live! So smokers not only kill themselves by smoking, and others by second hand smoke, but also by hogging needed medical equipment the elderly need. 3 ways smokers kill : 1.smoking themselves 2.second hand deaths 3. hogging ventilators and hospitals beds!

"just so you can look cool smoking"

Big fucking deal. Opiate overdoses are a much more serious problem which doesnt garner headlines. People die when they get sick. Is this a revelation?

If you think 700 cases is a complete accurate total of cases in Kansas, your are an idiot.

You can't count without testing and the feds are rationing. Kansas doesn't have enough to test even likely known cases.

There are several thousands of cases and it's still spreading.

^^^ Still spreading the virus hoax theory?

Are those crisis actors in the ERs and body bags?

The GOP is going to get wiped out in November, if the virus doesn't get them first.
