(NBC New York)   The US recorded a new record of more than 70,000 new cases of Coronavirus yesterday, up from 61,000 the day before. We're "flattening the curve" alright, just the wrong axis   (nbcnewyork.com) divider line

Time to pull out that old, dusty box of log chart paper!

And, suddenly, we break the z-axis, too.

That's not good.
It's very unsurprising but still shiatty.

Until they do things to bring the transmission rates down, it's not going to get better

Globally, there were 162k new cases yesterday.. so the US is getting close to HALF of the world's new cases.

For the 1/100th time, it's because we are the bigliest testing country.

But yeah, that's horrible.

Anyone want to guess where this line is going?

FYI deaths this week are up about 30% on last week.

Yeah but that's just because we're testing for death more than other countries are.
 
2020-07-11 5:20:01 AM  
The CDC's estimates that actual cases are about ten times higher than reported, along with the excess death statistics, present a truly horrifying picture. It's looking like most of us are going to get this and it absolutely did not have to be that way.

It's the beauty of freedom.  It's the taste of bootstraps. I notice you didnt highlight the effects of those 70,000 cases on the economy.

Hint: BOOTSTRAPS!!!

Gosh, what happened about a week ago that would cause such a surge in cases?

/My friends and I are taking bets the US will break 100,000 a day within the next week.

Go for the Big Mac. Maybe the quarter pounder deluxe. It gives the Burger King  whopper a run for its money.  But I'll take the whopper on principle

well, if they stop testing surely the numbers of infections and deaths go down.

The only reason we might not is a lack of tests.

I'm not a Big Mac fan.  The lettuce and 1000 Island are a hard pass for me.

The QP Deluxe is delicious though.  I rarely eat fast food but when I do I always get the two cheeseburger combo meal or the QP one.

I'm seriously contemplating having McDonalds delivered.  Can't tell if this is a very sad moment in my life or genius...

Yeah, I've been seeing that too.

As soon as El Trumpo was going on about how the deaths are so low, so it's no big deal, I told myself to give it a couple of weeks.

This should be fun.

It's true. All community leaders all full face in the sand. We were doing fine here for some time, but so much bad is happening. There is no way we are containing this thing.

Don't you find it more than a little suspicious how these liberal eggheads are always making predictions based on "expertise" and "science" and "new data as it comes in", and somehow all the bad shiat that they "predicted" somehow magically seems to happen?

It's not Thousand Island dressing.

Just because it has the same colour, and there's this meme, doesn't make it so.
