A math example on testing availability:
Month 1: 1000 actual cases, 100 tests conducted, 5% positive rate = 5 total cases by official CDC totals
Month 2: 100 actual cases, 2000 tests conducted, 5% positive rate = 100 total cases by official CDC totals
So actual cases are 1/10th what they were, but official totals show an “increase” of 5 to 100.
Media: “CASES ARE SPIKING, WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!”
And we now know from antibody tests and asymptomatic positive cases the survival rate is over 99.9%, even factoring in the nursing home debacles that accounted for almost half of cases.
Translation: don’t believe the media bullshit. Let’s go back to our normal lives and get to herd immunity.
