IDK, maybe if they'd bothered testing those who had mild to moderate cases back in Jan and Feb, when I caught mine, or at any time up til now, where they STILL aren't testing most mild cases, maybe they'd have a better idea of where the spread was coming from. It's community spread at this point. You waited until the horses had bolted to shut the barn door.
