    What happened to the ‘fit to fly’ certificates that were supposed to be a prerequisite before being allowed to fly?

    The statement that there is no flattening of the curve of a graph of the worldwide number of new cases detected is meaningless. The number of people being tested for COVID-19 is increasing daily as new test methods and kits become available and more people are trained and assigned to perform testing. Consequently, the number of new people found to have the virus will continue increasing. This doesn’t mean that the total number of people worldwide getting sick from the virus is increasing each day. Many of these tests are conducted on people in high-risk professions or positions and do not represent the world population. The WHO, governments, political leaders, and various news media outlets present skewed and misleading graphs and data to sensationalize their organization’s functions and to support hidden agendas.
