Wow, apparently it only took one day for the virus to spread, hospitalize thousands and kill 113!!!

I guess we better keep the lockdown going indefinitely until we get a mandatory vaccine!
Incidentally, for some reason conspiracy theorists are suggesting there could be more to this story…
Whether you agree with the re-opening or not, the record deaths have nothing to do with it. It takes a while to die from coronavirus. Deaths on Tuesday would have absolutely nothing to do with the state re-opening on Monday

Hopefully, Twitter will step up and censor them for questioning our media overlords!
