Once again, giving us the raw numbers may appeal to the bean counters, but where is the data we need, is this within families, from gatherings of large groups, schools, restaurants, factories, etc.? What is the age range? Were the infected cases mask wearers? The Pettis County Health Center claims it has a limited staff, but if they are doing adequate contact tracing and reporting, this information should be available and could be compiled in the time it takes to take a coffee break.
