Interesting. I find it difficult to judge the truthfulness of aritcles on Covid19. So much contradiction in the news. But, if true, this is another black eye for the Dem's and their resistance to White House efforts to deal with the virus.

It's also difficult to judge the truthfulness of WuFlu numbers that the government gives us. Unfortunately, this thing has been extremely politicized right from the very beginning.

Some incompetence or lying is certainly coming to light. One outlet reports 2400 cases in our county and the other says 2900. Both quote their source as the state health agency.
Toss in some labs just showing all of 'em positive to clear their backlogs and it makes it very hard to know what the real numbers may be. It certainly erodes my trust in the numbers reported.

I agree. But, since the source is the New York Slime and this news potentially hurts the Democrat Socialist Communists, I have to think that there is some truth to it. Frankly I don't see why they are reporting it.

Both false positives and false negatives are bad, and both will always exist.

I own shares in a company that does among other things, COVID and antibody testing in one of their divisions. They got the NFL contract and recently had 77 false positives in a row. People lost their minds over this, but they identified and resolved the issue, some sort of contamination.

They have done 5M tests so far, with those kinds of numbers these things are always going to exist. Even at .1% false results, that's 500 false results, and each one is a patient anxious over the result. Not a great situation right now just because of the sheer numbers of tests and their accuracy.

The left has taken it in the shorts lately with their condoning the riots and this covid BS. It's starting to show in the polls and letters to the mayors of these chitholes and those that have been identified as ******* agitators and liars.
Me thinks they know it and are going to "save the day" now, They think they'll come out on top. F them!

PCR test very sensitive to any virus
Even if viral load is not large enough to transmit infection..
Reliable and sensitive, but not necessarily clinically relevant.
The data do not always tell you what to do with it and it is subject to subjective(political) interpretation.

Yeah... make sure to read the other article in that paper, Trump is Vaccine for Deadly Swamp Virus...

because, you know, the guy who's had eight associates convicted, one associate awaiting sentencing, and others charged, and who himself has been named as an unindicted co-conspirator (and has numerous investigations ongoing into his personal and business practices) to a crime which sent his personal attorney for ten years to the slammer is the perfect guy to "Drain the Swamp"...

We just didn't know that "Draining The Swamp" would involve all of HIS associates going to jail!

I'm sure that paper isn't part of the "Fake News"....

If there was only something for the Democrats to gain from overblowing something to be significantly worse than it really is... ohhhhh wait.

94% of deaths attributed to COVID-19 had an underlying medical condition. That 6% is about 1/3 of the deaths from the ordinary flu in 2018-2019.

COVID-19 is real. The impact is an over blown hoax.

Ok, let's factor out those "potentially 90%" that shouldn't be counted. The death rate just timed by a factor of 10.

I think most of us suspected this all along.
We knew all along that many people don't have symptoms or get sick. So there is nothing really new here. We've been counting those people all along in the case numbers. Hello.

We also know that the real number of "infected" may be up to 10x higher than confirmed cases.

Sorry folks, COVID-19 is still real and is still killing people.

Texas with 30,000,000 folks and billions of tax dollars has screwed up the counts so bad they have a disclaimer.

And the feds won't release the number of illegals coming in to our hospitals. From what I know they have filled most of the hospital beds.

So is cancer, drunk driving, diabetes. I haven’t heard any campaign rhetoric about any of those.

It’s sad that some people have died from this, but then again the same could be said for any reason.
