Let’s say we do 100 tests and 3 come up positive. That’s a 3% positive rate. Then let’s say we ramp up the testing, do 1,000 tests, and 50 come up positive. Yes, more tests, more positives. But in this case, you’ve now got a 5% positive rate, which is worse than what we had before. And that’s what’s happening.Dorado, I truly don't understand your testing scenario. It seems to me that until we have a stable baseline, i.e., every single person tested we can't have accurate information to determine a decline or increase in covid numbers. What am I missing? I am sincere and assure you there is no snarky underlying pretense. I really am trying to figure this out, but must add that I am very suspicious of the politics and greed angle.
Now, if instead we had tested 1,000 people and only 20 came up positive, that’s only 2%, and I’d agree that would be an improvement. But that’s not what’s happening.
