Jan14 COVID Fraud: -382 Cases

On January 14th, 2021 Public Health Ontario recorded that there were less newly confirmed cases than newly recovered cases, with its daily epidemiological summary (locally archived here) as:

There are a total of 231,308 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ontario reported to date. Compared to the previous day, this represents:

  • An increase of 2,998 confirmed cases (percent change of -9.9%)
  • An increase of 100 deaths (percent change of +61.3%)* [actually 54 deaths]
  • An increase of 3,380 resolved cases (percent change of -5.9%)

This equates a net value of 2,998 - 3,380 cases, or -382 cases. For these alarming numbers, we have been forced into a lockdown (no, not a lockdown, a state of emergency) to "reduce the numbers".

Why the fuck do you need panic to REDUCE a negative number?
