Nor do they tell us the PERCENTAGE of POSITIVE tests.
HERE is a chart (you will have to follow the link, I am unable to embed it) showing the percentage of positive testing. Now, note that the percentage has come down. There may be a number of factors, one that might be a large cause is that people who got the testing early were those who were pretty much already showing possible symptoms and were largely getting the test to confirm an already existing diagnosis of Corona.
Having said that, note how the percentage of positive cases has fallen. from a high of 22 percent in late March to a low of about 4.5% in mid June….Right now we are a bit more than 8.5% positive. More data points gives us a much better data set. We can now see that Covid isn’t the threat it was once thought to be.
But the media doesn’t bother to tell you that, do they? Instead, the use the numbers to generate fear, by telling you the higher number of CASES….and telling you (lying, really) that the hospitals are in danger of being overwhelmed, when that is just not true.
Why don’t they give the truth? Why enegender fear? I can only think that it is to help keep the US population afraid, and in hiding, in order to damage the economy…..For political reason that you can figure out for yourself.
Remember, we have already Flattened the Curve…for well over 2 weeks. Either they were lying to us then, or they are lying to us now.
