    So we have been getting the 'virus' death rate announcements daily on the news bulletins for months now...

    Currently running at about 15 a day...

    Why do they not announce prostate cancer or breast cancer death rates which are at 30 each per day (and slightly rising) in a similar way?

    Because Covid 19 has potential to greatly escalate, other diseases don't.

    Because there’s not a cancer 'pandemic' and because it can’t be passed from person to person?
