To the Editor:
Very misleading headline on # of virus cases — “69% of tri-county COVID-19 cases in The Villages and 5 cities”
How about– “The Villages, with approximately 50% of the total population of the 5 largest cities in the tri-county area– has less that 10% of the virus, cases”. Or how about “The Villages, with a higher population than the next 4 largest centers in the tri-county area PUT TOGETHER–has less than 10% if the cases. Or how about “The Villages with more than 2 X the population of Ocala, has less than 1/2 of the virus cases”.
(2018 population–The Villages 128,754–Ocala 60,429–Clermont 36,693–Leesburg 23,163—-Bushnell 3,119)
