    Using Google's numbers, and we all know we can trust Google [/sarcasm]:

    Florida
    169K cases, out of 21.5 million people = 0.07%.
    3617 deaths out of 169K cases = 2.1%

    Sorry, but I don't think those numbers are any reason to shut everything down.

    I leave the house daily even during the shutdown.
    I also am back to working horse shows. The last two shows had 400+ entries. So figure one rider and one trainer per horse, plus grooms and caretakers, You probably have on average 3 to 5 people per horse, so lets stay on the low side and say 1000 people interacting with each other everyday for a week, and that doesn't even factor in the proud parents that come to watch their little darlings ride.
    And no, I do not know one person that has had the virus other than the wife's friends coworker maybe.

    Once again, I know the virus is real, I just have no doubt that it is being politicized and the numbers exaggerated.

    Now thats funny stuff right there!

    Sure... we could just keep spreading it at a higher rate until you do feel it's worth shutting everything down. You know... what we are doing right now.

    That is what I keep hearing, but have yet to see it.
    I do keep reading X amount of hospitalizations in our county. I just have not seen any of those X's

    Acquaint yourself with the trend line. If the current number of cases doesn't worry then the future number should.

    Oh that's right. I forgot how accurate Dr. Fauci's "models" have been so far.

    Let me put it this way. A tsunami is coming towards you, you can't see it so you say I'm not going to listen to a bunch of tsunami experts until I can see it for myself.
    When it's a few hundred metres away you can see it for yourself and you....have just enough time to kiss your ass goodbye.

    Not that it's stastically relevant (but that seems to be the MO of this entire thread anyway... ;) )

    My sister, her husband and their 3 kids are currently recovering from Covid-19. They were exposed by the husbands parents. Thankfully they are all starting to do better. Yesterday was the first in a week that my sisiters temp was under 103. I was really worried about the husband because he has some significant underlying medical issues, including asthma, but even he is on the mend. The parents were both in ICU, the dad is still on oxygen but is almost ready quit that.

    The reason we are seeing so many "new" cases is because we are testing more people DUH.

    Duh indeed. How is it possible that you missed the fact that there is a spike in positive cases over negative cases? Who ties your shoes?

    Here's how it works with me. We can have a respectful debate, or you can resort to personal attacks and I will ignore you.

    And those tests have been yielding a huge number of false positives.

    It's just that it's odd, you're over in one thread telling everyone how women are so much more intelligent than men and in this thread numbers are hard.

    Sorry, but given how many times the "experts" have been wrong about this virus, I don't believe anything they say and am convinced many of them have a political agenda (i.e. Dr. Fauci).

    Well to an extent I agree that's why I gave you a link to the raw data. I don't intermingle politics with data tracking.
