That is unfortunately what we saw with this earlier on too, first rural then cities. You would think it would be the other way around. I wonder if it has to do with how and when they are testing. I know there are several sites in Region 2 DPH that they are closing at 1pm now due to the heat. I wonder how they expect people who are still working to get tested......I guess the idea is that if you are sick you are not at work, but that does not seem to be how it is playing out.......I was digging in the Georgia data and the rural areas are being hit very hard right now. Their rate of infection per population dwarfs the city areas.
Hospitalizations looks very concerning.
Twisted wording. From another source you may or may not like, same person, different general message.In Texas, focal point of national anxiety about a coronavirus 'second wave,' the state counts every COVID-positive hospital patient as a hospitalization for COVID itself, which may be exaggerating numbers.t.co
Yea I wonder what states include them. Haven’t really wanted to check.In GA this is reportedly separately.
ETA: From DPH
Viral (PCR/ Molecular) Antibody (Serology) Total COVID-19 Tests Number of Tests 833,878 157,623 991,501 No. Positive 74,214 8,547 82,761 % Positive 8.9% 5.4% 8.3%
Many also report turning worse week 2. Good luck to you sir, I hope you’re not too confident and take care of yourself. Plenty of rest and fluids. You’re lucky you’ve had such a mild case. I did too, but now have post viral/chronic fatigue syndrome and joint pain and I’m on day 80. I’d take a common cold any day at this point. My punch was soft but the bruise this virus has left is quite obviously long lasting.Tomorrow will be day 7 since I tested positive on my swab. That is supposed to be the worst day according to survivors. I just want to put It on the record that I’ve had common colds that have packed more punch than this.
Bingo! Everyone on the right loves to cherry-pick death figures and pretend like it's getting better and this is all going away very soon! Couldn't be further from the truth.For those using deaths as an argument for it getting better, it’s clearly just killing people at a slower rate, which is largely due to our medical interventions.
That should be extremely obvious... as cases are exploding, and hospitalizations are increasing, deaths are decreasing.
Our knowledge on how to treat a Covid-19 patient has gone from ZERO to in depth protocols at every hospital in the nation.
See here for a nice summary of a protocol from a teaching hospital on how they treat Covid 19 patients: https://www.evms.edu/media/evms_public/departments/internal_medicine/EVMS_Critical_Care_COVID-19_Protocol.pdf
It’s not because the virus is slowing down, it’s not because the virus has mutated to a weaker virus, it’s because our doctors are doing their job and kicking ass.
