The virus is real. KC needs to keep staying vigilant and taking the threat seriously rather than giving into chaos. Hope we can keep our numbers relatively low.

And yet, homicide deaths far outnumber covid deaths.
Weird.

When will Rex “Adam schiff of kc” archer give us the recovered numbers? Rexy and shifty schiff are natural born liars so hence the nick name.

Why does he and mayor boy blunder continue to hide these numbers, why use scare tactics to keep people stuck indoors?

How many people killed by BLacks during that same period ? Same amount that is not seen as the real problem in our society. Or shall we mention how many people died due to smoking ? being fat slobs ? butt fucking and HIv ? Drug overdoses ? The majority a lifestyle choice, like not washing hands , social distances ( both should be done prior to covid 19 ) and now the wearing of a mask. We always look at picking up the penny, dropping the Jackson.

Special mention of the KANSAS CITY ATHEIST COALITION for all the help they have given the community during this time of crisis!

Why was a reporter from Phoenix Arizona at backwater jacks reporting this story? How did he know to come here? Why the Ozarks out of all places to report from? Seems suspicious and political to me.

6:02 - why are you so hung up on recoveries? And if, say, total deaths is 100 and total positive cases is 900, wouldn't recoveries be 800 then?

That someone would equate people just going on about their lives asking their betters for permission with chaos reveals a truly fascist mentality. Government does not exist to tell us what we can and cannot do and freedom is not chaos. The tyranny that the lock down enthusiasts are pushing, supposedly for our own good, is something reprehensible. I cannot wait until all of the little healthcare Hitlers that have been unleashed crawl back under their rocks.

You are so wrapped up in your 'Freedumb!' mentality 8:31, that you are too stupid to know that being told what to do by the so-called 'healthcare hitlers' saved a lot of lives.

And I agree with 8:14. The recovery numbers are simple math. If you can't add and subtract 6:02, get someone smarter than you (almost everybody) to do it for you.

There's no cases in Missouri.

Well, there are 4.6 million cases Worldwide and 1.6 million of those are in the United States, more than one third!

Sots obvious that something didn't work in this Country.

8:43. The jurisdictions with the most stringent lockdowns also suffered the highest death and infection rates. Yet there were jurisdictions that did little in the way of shutting down their economies where people fared much better. You don’t have the data to even back up your assertions that shutdowns save lives. If anything, if you add the increased cancer deaths and deaths due to other causes untreated during the shutdowns, and higher rates of violent death due to the breakdown in civil society places like Kansas City are doing much worse.

The freedom you hate so much creates the greatest weal for the greatest number of people. Go live in Venezuela, North Korea, or China if you want that kind of control over your life.

Why isn’t the media giving as much attention to the most dangerous pandemic, the Black Death? Weird.

^^Because this is a thread about COVID you fucking idiot! If you want to be a racist so bad CHUD, go to one of Tony's multiple other threads about that. Are you retarded CHUD?

9:50 No, but you are, you constantly derail discussions all day with your jibberish, stay in your basement with rapey joe and billy, you fit the part for sure.

8:43 do you miraculously know the numbers for those who’ve recovered because the city isn’t giving those out but go ahead and tell me with your magical math skills what they are.

You have to have them to get an accurate count of active cases, these losers keep trying to scare people by saying we have 1081 active cases, those numbers reflect over three months of counting. Nobody can have the wuhan flu for three months, it’s impossible.

The active case numbers reflect how well or bad the city is doing, I’m betting we only have two to three hundred active cases right now but rexy wants people so scared that they won’t come out of their houses. You really are stupid you know that.

^^^Well fuck, if they ain't dead, can I assume they recovered? Cripes, what the fuck is wrong with that? I mean, doesn't that work in the favor of your argument? I assuming your argument is "only 10 died out of 900, what's the big deal".

Jesus, relax Francis.
