    The 582 or the 88 tallies ain’t scare me yet but what make me worry is the 53 among the new cases. That could be a telltale sign of community infection is on the rise which does not come as a surprise in a country where potable water is still a luxury and hand sanitizers are scarce. The silver lining in these numbers is the fatality at lower than 1% of the total cases. This latest tally is a mixture of good and bad. Close to 22% positive results from the day’s tests is not something to sing about. Man, I am having a nightmare about those generous and Almighty fearing people!!! Let’s do everything we can by sharing the last penny in our disposal to help them. The Good Lord Shall Not Abandon Them!!!!
