    Only a lawyer would require me too look at every piece of data ever!

    FWIW I’ve avoided as best as I can commenting on specific models. I’ve got a very strong handle on modeling, science, and the basics of viruses but the details are outside my area of expertise.

    ha I didn’t realize we were so close. I think I see my car in that picture. I was in target oaks yesterday afternoon actually food shopping. It wasn’t crowded. Way better than the grocery stores. I don’t think people think of target for groceries so it is where I can shop without crowds and actually find things

    I wasn't requiring You, specifically... it was the Royal You, as in me, I think. I think, therefore I am, Or rather, I was, when I thought. I think that's it. Wait...

    That is great news. A similar amount of positives from 10X the tests. It's moving that way in the UK too.

    Obviously they are now testing people far wider than just those with severe symptoms. It follows that a far lower proportion will result in eventual fatalities than previously.

    We won't be seeing fatality numbers from those diagnosed today for 2-4 weeks yet, but a good sign that this virus is done.

    Stick a fork in it!

    Do you have a URL for that info? I am wondering if it is possible to see that same data without New York included? No preconceived idea of how that would look, just curious. The fact is that other data sets for things like new cases and daily deaths are starkly different when New York is excluded.

    Pretty sure this is the URL from the chart I posted. I had just screen shot it from Facebook.

    I don’t think you can exclude New York, but maybe you can find what your looking for in there?

    The graph shows a rolling 7 percentage of positive test, overlayed against a chart that shows the number of people being tested. The number of tested has gone up significantly, however I have no idea what percentage is needed/acceptable for reliable data. It also show the positive percentage has gone down to what looks like around 5%. I heard some "expert" on the radio say that we need to be around 2% on that line. I think that's what I heard.
