A couple of states have already decreased the # of C19 deaths because of over counting, more are to follow.  AZ was up a little, but only because of a 'medical blitz' where a ton of testing was done.  The % of positives to those tested actually went down.

I am a free-thinking individual whose value system reads like the right-wing talking points that can be found on just about any other portion of the internet.

From all the grousing around here, it seems many of you people have an unhealthy obsession with saving lives. You need to realize after all, that being alive is not the most important thing in life.*

DoBeDoBeDo: hugram: My racist MAGA M-I-L for the last 5 weeks: Why won't gov Cooper open up North Carolina already.  I hate him so much.

My racist MAGA M-I-L next week: Gov Cooper is killing us by opening North Carolina too soon.  I hate him so much.

/ wish I was kidding.

It's the Republican way.
Don't get what you want? Blame the Democrats!
Get what you want and it backfires just like every sane person on the planet was telling you it would?  Blame the Democrats!
But whatever you do, never, ever, ever self reflect on what really went wrong and why.


No, see, the democrats say "x terrible thing will happen if you do this". So, when X happens, its because the Democrats made it happen with their socialisms.

UberDave: Not surprising at all.  Two weeks ago, when Captain Pike announced the reopening, I was hoping that the numbers wouldn't go up but I was still skeptical.  Any hope I had was steadily dashed over the last two weeks as I watched the how the "no mask" people behaved.

/Texas


Yep. I'm still avoiding going out if at all possible.

My office is going to have staff rotation starting june 1, I have to go in on mondays. Good thing coronavirus likes its three day weekends...

I shudder to think how Pat McCrony would have handled this crisis.  He'd probably sell us coal ash as a cure.

Is this beyond the expected increase due to the increased testing though?

Say?!


I'm sure it's just coincidence.  Margin of error, extra-late reporting, found some lost records, inflated numbers, just got a new batch of tests and are testing people who needed them like, two weeks ago, it was an intern's fault, shoulda stuck to fetching coffee...
