What am I missing here?

"Alberta added has added 107 cases on Friday, bringing the provincial total to 1,1. Five additional people had died, bringing the total number of fatalities to 1. Eight of those deaths have been at a single long-term care in Calgary."
What very few are recognizing is the difference between dying WITH the virus and dying OF the virus. If you die in a car crash or of an unrelated heart attack and you have the virus you get counted as a death from the virus
This thing has a political agenda.
@PainfulTruth These figures may not lie but they are not truthful.

Five died, bringing total fatalities to 1. Eight of those (eight of 1)...

@Mamapolo2016 I think i's because the back-space and the return keys are close together and "...total fatalities to 1." probably should been "to 10." or "to 11.", or "12.", etc.

While such mistypes may not be common on desktop type computers, smart-phones and I-phones are far more accommodating for such mis-types.

If I can offer myself as an example, I routinely hit two to three letters at a time when I try writing something with my smart-phone. I believe my record is 4 letters at one time. I well remember that incident because it was on an e-mail I was sending to my brother and he thought I was telling him to go f&K/{ himself.
@Heartlander 😁 I was joking via text and I typed 'rat you out' and either I typo'd or autocorrect changed the 'r' in rat to an 'e.'

He had some questions.
I don't know what you're trying to say but what I do know is that this is no longer worth any more of my time.
Stay healthy.
@PainfulTruth I came to the same conclusion. Be safe and have a good day.

(Any number of deaths plus five does not equal 1. If the current total is 1, "eight of those 1 deaths" is not possible.)
