“ … Covid-19 deaths to four … number of registered cases at 83 … 33 recoveries … 46 active cases … ”
There is a GoM website which shows those exact numbers as I post this. Curiously, there is also another statistic there, which is 2459 suspected cases. Why are suspected cases never mentioned by Mhango et al in their daily briefings?

Mmm, nanunso!

You cannot bring suspected cases to the media my friend unless you are in a joking mode. John Hopkins publishes facts not suspicions, otherwise you yourself may be one of the suspected cases. How many times have you coughed and sneezed today?
