number of cases is a useless metric

That sounds about right for the back to school wave, let's see how big it gets.

Cases have been trending up for a month but deaths have been stable or trending slightly downward.

It would be nice if news outlets would use the positivity rate, but then that wouldn't make it as 'dire' a story.

No need to wait 2 weeks. If you look at the charts you quoted much more closely, youíll see no increase in deaths with the increase in cases.

100%...

We've already proven that either one of two things are occurring...

In July/Aug with 60-70k cases, we "should have seen" upwards of 4-5000deaths if you compare it to April/May (can you hear that NY?)

So either the remedies are better... OR

Testing has increased, asymptomatic/young people are getting it....

As it stands in the minds of most rational people... This "oh so dangerous" spike will not increase deaths by any appreciable amount... CNN can lick a nut sack, and in 21 days the media will have another story to spin about one of two people winning the election.

This past week alone we've seen a few trending stories concerning the Vid..

Lockdowns don't work
Masks (especially cloth ones) are questionable in their effectiveness..

As predicted by many.. the closer the election gets, the more stories will be coming out concerning the great Covid debate.
