    More lies that WBZ refuses to question. I also do not believe 2,486,650 people were tested. I believe the true number is more like 200,000. The number of confirmed cases is more like 2000. The numbers of confirmed cases include common cold coronaviruses which have nothing to do with anything. It’s all a lie. Look at the nurses, they are all fat, ugly, loaded with attitude. Will not be taken care of any of them.
