We have been on the 0.76% death rate for last almost 2 months but we only have about 5 deaths in about 45 days or 2 months. Something doesn’t adds up here.

The deaths have dropped dramatically but so to have the cases. We were over 7000 cases daily a couple months ago. We have been around or under 50 cases a day for weeks now. So the ratio of cases to deaths is still about the same. Maybe… according to this info.
