    ? what's your point of contention here?

    You think there's value in looking at the absolute number of tests here? We have tested more than 10x fewer people here for every 1000 compared to Korea.

    You made a statement that was incorrect. I pointed it out. Nothing more, nothing less.

    I've already pointed it out twice. I don't need to again.

    Right. Making a mountain of a molehill and skewing facts to fit their narrative while minimizing the crisis is what the admin is trying to do. They are deliberately misleading people by making grandiose claims without actually putting them in context.

    It's like.... no shit Korea didn't test more people, they don't have that many people to test. It's 1 in 150 they are testing, while we are doing 1 in 1000. Looking at raw numbers in this is useless, and I'm trying to point that out so people see past the bullshit. Technically being true is pointless, while not point stuff in context, and it's Trumpism 101. The fact that Birx now is placating this fool and speaking to only an audience of one is fucking scary.

    You're not too far off from the truth, in their eyes. Seriously. Must read.

    Remember the fatality curve is usually a few days behind the # of cases one. We saw a massive surge in cases the past three days. A lot of these cases are getting ventilated, and from China/Europe, about 80% of those on vents are dying. This 1300 number is going to climb like crazy over the next few days.

    Then make that your argument rather than stating someone is lying while they are citing a fact.

    illmatic99 works in the field of microbiology as I understand it. I presume he/she know something about the subject.

    What field illmatic99 works in is irrelevant to my point.
