In October, 2020, the reporting of the progress of COVID-19 has focused on the number of cases. Both authorities and media recount the latest daily “numbers” as if we are one step away from Armageddon. The public – at least the gullible – panic on cue demanding greater government restriction and control over the economy and social life.

Anyone paying attention and thinking critically would at this point, have asked “What’s a case?” The Government of Ontario has published such a definition[2]. Itt should br moted that a ‘case’ may be a person whom is asymptomatic and has not been tested but ha simply been near an active case(s).
