40k+ tested, and 3500+ tested positive. So that means around 92% of those tested were not infected. Remind me again why we are in a lock down? Those are fairly insignificant numbers compared to other seasonal viruses, and the death rate is far below that of cancer, and quite frankly most historical pandemics.
