While we’re discussing the fake virus, I would like to say that my family has personally debunked that children either: 1.) can’t get the virus or 2.) are asymptomatic and can’t spread it.  My grandchildren (4, 11 and 13) were very sick with it. People love to talk conspiracy theory until it happens to them.  Condolences to you and yours.  I’m raising a FireBall Mule to Chad.
