The Kern Public Health Department issued a COVID report earlier last week.

It is interesting to note that the COVID death rate in Kern County is only 1.21 percent, which means that the survival rate for people of all ages is 98.79 percent. This is really good news.

I wonder why such a good survival rate is not publicized as much as the huge number of cases we are bombarded with constantly.
