    Well of course it is incomplete. We lack adequate testing, so logically there are far more cases than we know about. And that's a good thing, actually, as far as the death rate goes. That means the true death rate is lower than the 37% one which can be calculated from the confirmed case data. How much lower, we don't know.

    That also means that when localities wait until they show alarming numbers of cases to issue shelter-in-place orders that it is too late. They really should have done so sooner.

    That's why we are seeing the totals spike, not a flattening of the curve.

    A mortality rate derived only from confirmed cases is worthless.

    Though it makes good click bait.

    Disagreed since a mortality rate from unconfirmed cases is worthless. They could have died in a rice picker tragedy.

    Still, anyone who believes the Chinese or Russian mortality rates is a fucking moron.

    Still waiting for the spike to flatten out:

    So far it appears to be getting more vertical with each report.

    Needless to say, if the prez was really doing a good job the USA would NOT have the most cases in the world.

    2000 deaths threshold passed today.

    Where is the ceiling?

    How high will it go before it begins to flatten the curve?

    120K total cases.

    That's what Poli doesn't seem to get.
    Doesn't get the whole "per capita" thing.
    Abortion rights dogma can obscure human reason & harden the human heart so much that the same person who feels
    empathy for animal suffering can lack compassion for unborn children who experience lethal violence and excruciating
    pain in abortion.

    Unborn animals are protected in their nesting places, humans are not. To abort something is to end something
    which has begun. To abort life is to end it.

    Who told you that? Was it the Red Chinese, or their shills in the WHO, who have no way to verify the Red's claims?

    This was a point I wanted to raise, but I couldn't find data on number of tests administered, by country.

    Let's imagine a hypothetical country called NoCovidistan. Their ruler, NoCovidski decrees that testing for Covid-19 is forbidden on pain of death. They could claim there was no Covid-19 in their country, because there would be zero confirmed cases. But that claim would be horse shit.
