Trump was visited by the ghost of Abe Lincoln the other night. He asked honest Abe "HI, Abe. You were a great president like me, how do I fix this? How can I make America great again?"

Lincoln replied "Go see a play."

Seems to me, all else being equal, if you test more people for a disease that roughly 80% who have it have mild or no symptoms, you're going to find more of it than when you only test those who have obvious symptoms.

Close the airports, rails, ports and road access. Cut them off and let it burn out inside Florida rather than spreading it more. That's pretty much what the tri-State area did.

True.  But maybe test numbers and case numbers are less important than ICU and death numbers?

The important number is how many in the hospital, and is there still room for you?
At one point, 1/2 the Covid patients in the hospitals didn't come home.

Believe it or not the epidemiologists who study this sort of thing for a living have, in fact, accounted for this. It's not the number of tests, it's the fraction that come back positive. And that's soaring in places like FL/GA/MS/TX/AZ.

And in bad news today, 500K tests per day is good... except that thanks to Trump the number of new cases has spiralled so catastrophically from all corners that this is no longer enough to seriously try and keep ahead of it. And the labs are now overloaded by the number of tests being requested (as in, the machines can't process them fast enough, not that we don't have swabs), and we are in danger of them no longer being able to return results in a fast enough (~1 day) timespan to be useful for contact tracing.

In other words, for places like Arizona and Florida, the only choice at this point is to revert to total shutdown. And unless there is immediate national action on things like "mandatory masks in all public indoor places no exceptions" soon the rest of the nation will join them.

The only question is, how many people will the Republicans murder before they admit it.

More and more I am starting to think that Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure was not just some hit Hollywood comedy from 1989, that it was in fact a message from the future disguised as a movie. And we totally dropped the ball. If you need proof just look at the sequel, Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey. The first film was most excellent, but we failed to do anything to change our world. As a result you can see the first ripples of degradation of the future by how truly horrible the sequel was. If we had actually listened the sequel would not have been so, well, bogus.

Not to mention that we have ideologues in many other states that are dead set on doing things like opening up universities and schools.  I don't see how major universities open when you have students coming from states like Texas and Florida.  I am thinking that if this continues you are going to have university towns putting their foot down.  We chose the worse of two possible economic disasters.  That's what happens when the shallow thinkoing corporate lickers are in charge of the government.

You might as well stop testing or not even begin with it in the first place. Then your numbers are zero.

However, less testing = not knowing who is infected = less prevention = more cases.

In fairness, the local governments in the more populated areas (South Florida, Orlando, Tampa/St. Pete) are stepping up and requiring people wear masks everywhere they go.

And the beaches in South Florida are all closed this weekend to kill any incentive for large groups of people to congregate in one area (not just at the beach but the bars and restaurants near the beach too).

A certain part of the media that starts with "F".  I have watched other outlets and some international outlets and I know exactly how this was handled in other countries.

We also have to deal with the fact we are the most farking selfish culture on earth.  In an eastern culture they will put on masks and curtail plans JUST BECAUSE their culture values teamwork and helping others.  I don't think it was just totalitarianism that helped the situation in China.  It was also that when you tell them putting on a mask helps others they nod and help their community out. They don't try to make up some false constitutional right just because they have been taught to be contrarian to the government on all issues.

No.  Testing isn't random and follows specific criteria.  You want to test likely patients (symptoms, contacts, etc).  If you have fewer people who might have covid contact or have symptoms you are naturally going to have fewer tests.

No. The cases are happening regardless of whether or not we test for them. The hospitals would be filling up regardless of whether or not we test for anything. Fewer confirmed cases, perhaps. But we'd likely end up with MORE overall cases, because without testing asymptomatic people wouldn't quarantine because they'd have no knowledge of having the disease.

Why are the medical people that are definitely exposed allowed to roam amongst the rest of us?

Because they wear N95 masks and practice strict hygiene at work. Did your parents have any kids that lived?


No idea. I'm pretty sure we are already dead and we just don't know it but I'm quite sure you know all the answers.

Tell me, why aren't the masks working?

10000 new infected today. Death rate of approx 5% for the US.
That means that todays 10000 new Covidians should translate to about 500 dead in at around the 25th

I hope the math's is wrong. That's a sixth of a 9/11 per day just in Florida. *shudder*

Seems to me, all else being equal, if you test more people for a disease that roughly 80% who have it have mild or no symptoms, you're going to find more of it than when you only test those who have obvious symptoms.

True.  But maybe test numbers and case numbers are less important than ICU and death numbers?

The important number is how many in the hospital, and is there still room for you?
At one point, 1/2 the Covid patients in the hospitals didn't come home.

proton: Mock26: More and more I am starting to think that Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure was not just some hit Hollywood comedy from 1989, that it was in fact a message from the future disguised as a movie. And we totally dropped the ball. If you need proof just look at the sequel, Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey. The first film was most excellent, but we failed to do anything to change our world. As a result you can see the first ripples of degradation of the future by how truly horrible the sequel was. If we had actually listened the sequel would not have been so, well, bogus.

Indeed.  Maybe it's time for America to...

Yarp. If this upcoming movie is a most excellent movie then we are on the right path. If it blows chunks then we blew it, again.

Yeah, but just ask Phil the plumber from Pottsville, PA, or Wayne the welder from Wausau, WI, or Mike the mechanic from Marshfield, MO, or Helen the housewife from Hilo, HI, the common flu is deadlier than COVID-19, so we have nothing to worry about and everyone taking this seriously is overreacting.
