From a Harvard Global Health institute site. Big 12 and SEC rocking it for risk levels based on cases and deaths. The Big 10 looks better even though they are maybe leading the way to opting out. Kinda surprised Texas and Cali don't get a red but I am guessing that's due to yuge populations. They seem on their way to red.

Well, I have been trapped in a time/space continuum distortion for decades now. Sometimes it's 1968 than 1995 than 2020.
I hear you, I hear you so well I could hear a pin drop through the line. :)

Not a good island.

How do testing numbers compare over those weeks? Case numbers alone are misleading. For example, I believe yesterday was a new record for the number of tests done in the state.

No doubt cases are increasing slowly, I'm not arguing that. But just showing positive test numbers isn't reliable.
Testing numbers have been pretty steady for the last month or so.

744 new cases today in Iowa.
Yeah the rate of increase is definitely alarming and doesn't appear to be slowing down. Death rates are at least not increasing yet though it's a lagging indicator so will really know in two weeks or so.

Starting to see hospitalizations and ICU numbers tick back up. They were at their lowest a couple weeks ago. Positivity rate is starting to go up as well. Starting to get some 7% numbers this past week where as a couple weeks ago we were down to about 4%.

Testing isn't the issue. How the statistics are portrayed by the Media is.
Do you mean the media that reports things that are happening like overwhelmed hospitals and no ICU beds available, and shortages on testing and PPES?

What has been the national plan for those things since the spring?

We were told that testing shouldn't happen because it would mean no cases.

Not sure how Minnesota is still "yellow". Peeps are generally not bad on the mask front while in stores but it's getting more crowded in retail outlets. And driving about yesterday saw lots of people dining outdoors. Actually more than I'd expect on a Thursday afternoon although I'd guess folks were opting for outdoor and not inside. Great timing this summer for reopening an old drive-in on Hwy 7. Was busy as heck and than starting doing walkup and is now closed temporarily because employee(s) got sick.

Speaking of which, yeah those 15,000 positive tests on Sunday in Florida. Questionable at best. Oops, darn decimal points in the wrong place.

https://www.fox35orlando.com/news/f...s-have-not-reported-negative-covid-19-results

Countless labs have reported a 100 percent positivity rate, which means every single person tested was positive. Other labs had very high positivity rates. FOX 35 News found that testing sites like one local Centra Care reported that 83 people were tested and all tested positive. Then, NCF Diagnostics in Alachua reported 88 percent of tests were positive.

The report showed that Orlando Health had a 98 percent positivity rate. However, when FOX 35 News contacted the hospital, they confirmed errors in the report. Orlando Health's positivity rate is only 9.4 percent, not 98 percent as in the report.

Should we put a decimal point somewhere in today's 132 reported deaths in Florida too so we can continue to downplay it further?
