Default COVID testing and Florida

So I was talking to my neighbor and he and some family friends had gone to get tested for COVID. Filled out the paperwork and then it got backed up so they left without being tested. They all got the news today that they tested positive. So I text that information to a buddy of mine that is a state trooper and he said that nurses at the hospital have told him that unused test kits have come in with positive test results. What the heck is going on?

Guess it's time to send some emails to congress people.

True.
If you only knew the half of the BS going on in the hospitals. RNs getting tested. Pop a + have to get re-tested until they can come back (-) then return to work. They count all the tests for one person as a positive. So if nancy the nurse needs 5 tests to clear her, they count it as 6 positives. They count PUIs as well. So any of Nancy the nurses' relations and contacts can now be counted as positives without even being tested. It goes on and on and on. The data is so corrupted now it is worthless.

Deaths? Shot in the head = china flu death. True. They are actually going back in time to re-code deaths from March-present to make them china flu deaths regardless. Why? $$$$ Its insane, it is all legal. There's more, but I leave it at that.

“Confirmation bias (Wason, 1960) occurs when people seek out or evaluate information in a way that fits with their existing thinking and preconceptions.”

“In a meta-analysis of 61 papers exploring the persuasive impact of evidence type, we establish that, in situations where emotional engagement is high (e.g., an issue associated with a severe threat, involving a health issue, or affecting oneself), statistical evidence is less influential than anecdotal evidence.”

My best friend’s sister’s boyfriend’s brother’s girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who’s going with a girl who saw Ferris pass-out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it’s pretty serious.

I don’t know about that one but we did have a motorcycle accident victim that died get coded as COVID. It made the news. Also a lot of Florida memes

A cynic would say that the faster everyone gets diagnosed with positive for Covid, the faster the experts can declare herd immunity and move on.

Statista has some great charts on infections. Of recent interest: "Deaths per 100,000" by state. (New Jersey the current reigning champ o'death). Right now, the death rates per 100k in FL really aren't that bad compared to the NE states.

Death Rates Per 100k by State

Also interesting: Death Rates per 1 million by Country. Belgium, UK, Spain, Italy at the top. US in the top 10 worst.

Death Rates per Million by Country

(Usual caveat applies. The data is s*#$ and the experts are lying)
