    Explains in detail how Florida has artificially manipulated their number to make things look better and justify opening back up

    So these daily case numbers are looking pretty bad. I was struggling to see how we could get to 400k dead by year’s end but it might just happen. That model prediction was from weeks ago, has it been updated?

    Question hoping someone can answer. Numbers are from worldometer regarding Florida.

    We have been averaging on the high end about 3,000 new cases a day for quite a while. If the standard time to kick the virus is 14 days then how does FL have over 200k active cases? Shouldn’t it be under 50k based on the math?

    no one really tracks active cases. It’s a statistic I would completely ignore. Ideally it would be tracked but plenty of people get the positive test, isolate (hopefully) and then never come in contact with a medical professional again. I don’t know if they clear them as non-active after a certain amount of time but it’s just not a statistic they are properly keeping.

    Florida’s numbers just never fully made sense. Even now, the amount of deaths per case (even though deaths lag 4-8 weeks) doesn’t make sense. Far too many deaths per recorded case when compared to other states if you take out the first 2 months when no one really knew what was going on.

    deaths shouldn’t still be averaging about 100 a day with the reported cases per day. University of Washington is estimating that Florida is missing 75-80% of the cases which is a crazy high number.

    their death to hospitalization rate is way off too. Most states are averaging around 1.5%-2.5%. FL is at 4.5%.

    They is no set definition for "active cases." Some states consider anybody who isn't dead and tested positive within the last 30 days to be an active case. Florida might be 60 days, because those numbers seem to line up.

    Yes, they updated it last Friday. It projects 330,000 deaths by January 1, and 394,000 by February 1. The slope is sharply increasing.

    We are seeing hospital capacity issues in the Salt Lake Valley. The top hospital here has more COVID patients today than it has had on any other day. They are creating more beds because the census got down to one available bed. The bigger issue is staffing. They don’t have the staff to meet quality standards. The current staff is, frankly, exhausted.

    Last night there was a news story about a woman whose heart stopped during the night. She was rushed to the nearest hospital. That one didn’t have the means to treat her. It took them 2 hours to find a hospital that did AND have room for her.

    I wonder if he's talking more about reduced business travel more than anything else. I feel like tourist demand will be back pretty much as soon as the vaccine is widespread.

    53k before TX (7 day avg of 4.3k) and incomplete reporting from CA (at 1,126, 7 day avg of 3.3k), among a handful of other states without numbers yet. So we’re gonna crack 60k for sure, only the fourth time since beginning of August.

    Work at a law firm in Denver. After the stay at home orders ended one partner (super right wing) was basically like everyone back in the office. Myself and one other of the 10 attorneys are masking. The rest of the attorneys/paralegals/support staff...none at all. (This also violates Colorado's mask order) I've been trying to work remotely a few days a week just so I can avoid that disaster. Worked in office full days Monday-Wednesday of this week (was the only attorney who did so), and was working remotely today, and planning to do so tomorrow. Said partner schedules a client meeting for tomorrow at 10am in office. Asks me if I can attend and I respond I was planning to work remotely tomorrow but will absolutely come to the meeting. Get an e-mail back stating that they wish and expect that I will be in the office more frequently. It's infuriating that people don't take this seriously.
