Hi Prof

Good question - the stats show that the number of logins is 20% down compared to this time last year. However, 85% of people who visit hootoo read pages without logging in. Internet traffic does decrease a bit over summer, so it's good news that there has been an increase this month.

smiley - ok

I am concerned too. We have people who think you can beat Covid-19 by drinking bleach or taking a horse-sized dose of Ivermectin. (There are some conditions for which humans can take Ivermectin, but no clinical trials have established Covid-19 as a disease for which one should take it.)
