Unfortunately the stupid have platforms to spread their bullshiat that this is fine and Florida is a model for the rest of the nation. For example this math challenged moron:

https://twitter.com/claytravis/status​/​1282362928893759488?s=21

So according to him numbers of infected don't matter because they are a slightly smaller number of the percentage of the people tested while you are increasing the number of tests.

Average incubation period is 4-5 days. Another day or 3 to get worried/tested.

What was happening 6-8 days ago?

Anybody know the average age of positive testers?
Downward trend in that is important. Vulnerable can protect themselves, while 'immortal' kids run the streets. The smart move is for grandma to tell the little shiat to find another place to crash. 20 somethings are tough, they can do a 14 day quarantine sleeping in their car.

If you use today's data, AK shoots to the top of the list. 47 2 days ago, 51 yesterday and 93 today. Yup, doubled in 2 days.

The current case fatality rate for Covid-19 in the US is around 4.2%, so for every 1,000 cases, 42 people die.

Thus, 15,000 daily cases in Florida means 630 dead, just from this single day's reported cases, scattered around at some point around 24 days from now, which is the first week of August.

For all of the US at a 4.2% CFR:
50,000 cases per day = 2,100 deaths per day
60,000 cases per day = 2,520 deaths per day
70,000 cases per day = 2,940 deaths per day

Visiting Florida? Be sure to ask for one of our new signature cocktails while visiting our crowded beaches and bars

Death on the Beach:a delightful mix of vodka, peach schnapps and freshly hacked up phlegm

Ventilator iced-tea: vodka, rum, tequila, gin, triple sec, grenadine and cola served in an authentic breathing tube discarded from a local ICU

sweet jesus, my cousin and her almost-17 year old daughter just facetimed me while kayaking on a small lake near the IL/WI border. they wanted to show me some painted turtles on a log. my "little cousin" piped up "i just got my license! i can drive to florida right now!

so i diplomatically said "that would actually be a bad idea, it's a very long drive to do by yourself, it would cost you a lot of gas money, and everything is very hot and very crazy here right now."

and she replies, "oh yeah! over 15,000 new cases today!" like this was also exciting new news...


things i noticed:

i spend a few hours away from news updates to clean my house and i miss this news. BUT they already knew it literally in the middle of a remote, duckweed covered lake! 1100+ miles away!

my little cuz is politically active. i've spent over a year sending her well-sourced reasons she should stop listening to TPUSA.

no one knows why she is SO into them, her parents are not trumpers or religious zealots. but after TPU "specially selected" her from her town and flew her to DC to meet trump (with a group of other high schoolers) a year and a half ago she's been OBSESSED with them and him. pre-COVID her mom let her attend their creepy events every single weekend they had one. if that's not evidence of indoctrination-in-action of emotional teens i don't know what is...

despite KNOWING how bad of a hotspot FL is (better than i know, apparently), and being a bright and kind and empathetic kid, and having 2 different immunocompromised little brothers under age 5, she STILL thought a vacay to FL now, THIS WEEK, was an awesome idea...

Eh, debatable.  They had intel they were gearing up for something, not a specific date, time, location, or means of attack.

So it is different.  This is knowing exactly what they were going to do and when and then not trying to stop it....  every day.

NY was a horrible tragedy, which was made difficult to avoid by NYC being an international travel hub and home to 10 million people.  But they locked it down and got it under control as best they could.  Florida has /chosen/ their current path.

New York had 7 days of over 10,000 new cases and that was spread over 22 days between April 3 and April 25.  Florida has had 6 days of over 10,000 cases in just the last 10 days, and their peaks are higher than NY.

The Republicans keep pushing the "but the death-rate is lower" narrative, but you wait a few weeks and get back to me on that one.  We've had time to figure out, largely from NYs experience, what works and how best to treat people, but there's not any guaranteed therapy, and once these places start running out of beds, ventilators and protective gear, things could get very sad in a big hurry.

New York & New Jersey's problems were also highly localized to the greater NYC area, while Florida is spreading their tragedy around more, so clearly they're not going to overrun capacity as quickly as NY did, but still.  Florida, Texas, California, Arizona, Georgia, all could get pretty ugly.

I just got tested on Friday here in Sarasota. The line was about 30-45 minutes and I'll hear back Monday or Tuesday , I hope. A contractor I met with tested positive and I've been feeling kinda lousy for days. I would say it's probably a minor cold but with all this going on, I figured it's better to know. Sucks that they wouldn't test my kids because they're under 18 though.

Because all we have on recent memory is the memory of aggressive quarantine and containment efforts that worked.

SARS, Swine Flu, Ebola, etc.

All success stories, all bloomed like a flower and died, and most importantly: all of happened somewhere elseand didn't require me to do so anything.

the spatial population density will affect the time it takes for a certain % to get infected overall, but the per capita infection rate per day is going to correlate strongly to the # needing hospitalized per day, which can then be compared to the # of available ICU beds per capita.   It seems that  , by and large, 1 in 1500 people per day showing as a new detected case in a state strongly correlates to overwhelming the medical system.

Yes. We can go again!  Just an fyi, people have already shiat all over this argument as being stupid at the very beginning.  By the way, it sure if you finished reading that thread last night, but Doctor Birx AND Mike Pence say you're wrong too.  I absolutely detest both of them, but when even THEY say you're wrong, you're pretty damn wrong.

Just like everyone else who were able to see how stupid your statements were in the last thread, and the thread before that, and the thread before that.

As I mentioned before.  When you quit posting so much misinformation I'll be happy to stop.

You

Are

Wrong

More testing of the general population instead of only people suspected of having it SHOULD LOWER THE POSITIVITY RATE.  So

Moar test = moar positives = everything is fine =

You

Are wrong

Germany, half the size of texas

2.5 the population

378 positive tests.

Texas had almost 10,000.

Just like when we originally got into the when you were trying to refute mr travelers and my statements that the murders were going to start this week, we were right.  Deaths jumped 30%.  You were wrong then, you are wrong now.  Every time you post these the wringer you get as all the data further proves your wrongness.

You asked in that thread last week what we had issue with those pictures?

Nothing nothing is wrong with them.  It's how you're representing them that is wrong.  This isn't fiscal policies we're disagreeing with, it's people's lives.

Your misinformation is costing people lives people, because people use your misinformation to invalidate their wrong positions.

Just stop being wrong.
