Jan21 COVID Fraud: -713 Cases

On January 21st, 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 250,226 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ontario reported to date. Compared to the previous day, this represents:

  • An increase of 2,662 confirmed cases (percent change of +1.1%)
  • An increase of 87 deaths (percent change of +89.1%)
  • An increase of 3,375 resolved cases (percent change of +12.9%)

This equates a net value of 2,662 - 3,375 cases, or -713 cases. For these alarming numbers, we have been forced into a lockdown (not a lockdown, but only a state of emergency) to "reduce the numbers".

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