    How about the breakdown of deaths by ages? Hospitalizations by ages?

    Tuned in mid story on COVID 19 opening and I believe your reporter said that airplanes and not as well ventilated as ground based facilities, gyms etc. Nothing could be further from the truth. Cabin air in an Airbus 320 series aircraft Is replaced and/or filtered every 3 minutes and any recycled air is run through hospital grade HEPA filters. Aircraft cabin air is probably more filtered than any building in Boston. I have been an Airbus captain for 11 years. If you have questions, I suggest you contact Airbus or Delta or Jet Blue, the largest airbus operators in the Boston market.

    Why does the headline have a higher number, 263 cases, when the number of confirmed cases is only 200? I know, the “probable cases” which are bogus is included to inflate the number and Channel 4 helps these horrible woke people in the non-transparent, socialized, forced health insurance industry in Massachusetts to control the citizens. Better yet, Charlie Parker who had China send face masks and medial gear, all of a sudden doesn’t believe the WHO’s report that the asymptomatic do not spread this common cold. This concentration Camp of Massachusetts from Charlie and Maaahty was all a lie.
