    In fact that is much closer to the truth. I also found it funny in a bizarre, strange way.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    SO you do 100 tests and 3 are positive in one day. A month later you do 10,000 tests and 303 are positive. We are testing more so we have more positive cases but the ratio is flat meaning both are 3%. So to say we had the most cases in a day doesn't mean so much without context, no?

    I am still trying to make sense at how the increased testing doesn’t atleast partially explain the surge In cases . I mean how do they find out if there is an increase in cases without testing?

    Yes. Clown made it clear as to what you were referring, the ratio. However people were testing positive at a higher rate.

    There is no meaning absent context.

    Yeah I saw that after my post and assuming that it's all valid testing that would be a problem.

    I was just referring to the media narrative that says increased Testing isn’t a factor to the large spikes in cases

    A factor, but certainly not the primary.

    I'm interested in knowing how he can claim something is media driven when he has already said he doesn't have anything to do with the news.

    Interesting.

    Maybe it’s because of all the media sources that are used here in this thread ? And could you show me where I said I had nothing to do with the news ?

    “This is more than two weeks since the peak of the protests, and the incubation period of the virus is generally seven days,” said Dr. Peter Chin-Hong, professor of medicine and an infectious diseases specialist at UC San Francisco. “I’m so psyched that all those fears were not realized.”

    Despite warnings from public health officials, new research suggests Black Lives Matter protests across the country have not led to a jump in coronavirus cases.

    A new study, published this month by the National Bureau of Economic Research, used data on protests from more than 300 of the largest US cities, and found no evidence that coronavirus cases grew in the weeks following the beginning of the protests.

    In fact, researchers determined that social distancing behaviors actually went up after the protests -- as people tried to avoid the protests altogether. But obviously, these demonstrations caused a decrease in social distancing among actual protesters.
    Except they are doing studies that say the protests aren't contributing to an uptick in cases so try again.
