***WARNING*** Please be careful of national level CV19 reports that still include NY Metro. [View all]

Last edited Mon May 25, 2020, 11:01 AM - Edit history (2)

Read on this site and have seen multiple lazy assed M$M reports of falling cases nationally without extracting the skewing data from NY Metro.

EDIT: For the next month or so look at hospitalization numbers ... they're harder to obfuscate and tell a better bottom line story of a county or state getting lit up.

If anyone knows of a site that list hospitalizations on a granular level please let me know

1. Multiple sources report New York metro is skewing national results because the size of the outbreak in that area.
2. COVIDACTNOW.org showing 90% of reporting counties with an Ro >1, meaning infection rates still growing in those areas
3. Same site is also showing 90% of counties without a proper positive test rate so don't eat the "we're testing more" crap

IIRC Even Quomo showed the national numbers with NY metro extracted during his daily update and the cases nationally were still rising (relative national Ro > 1 sans NY metro)



- Great article on how loosening current NPI levels aren't going to save the economy historically

- Great article on how loose NPI in Sweden didn't help their economy more than their neighbors now.

I don't know what this is about cause it sure aint the economy but it looks and sounds funny how there are multiple sources attempting to convince folk things are OK or getting better.

At best its staying the same outside of NY metro and same is bad

Be careful, wear a mask if you got to get close to folk and don't touch your face no matter what.
