    Of course that doesn't fit the fear mongers' narrative, so they try to make it sound like an inexplicably bad thing.
    The data does not support your claim. While some countries are seeing a downturn due to their efforts to mitigate the virus, others are just beginning to see the virus take hold and surge. Globally, the incidence of new cases continues to rise. If you look at the running 10-day average for global new cases, the current peak is Sunday (the day before yesterday) at 97,247 average cases per day over the previous 10 days.

    In the U.S., we hit our 10-day running average peak on 4/11 at 31,965 new confirmed cases. In the six weeks since then, we have only dropped back to 22,194. It took us only 9 days to climb from a 10-day running average of 20,062 to 31,965, and after six weeks we still have not dropped back down to that number.

    Pointing to a few countries that have seen a drop in cases as proof that we are "past this thing" when the global numbers tell a different story is like pointing to one glacier that is advancing to prove "global warming is not happening" when the vast majority of glaciers are actually in retreat. It is an example of selectively choosing data to affirm a narrative - something you do (and are called out on) on a regular basis.

    In britain - due to mitigation efforts to control it. Stop listening to breitbart spin and look at the actual data. Most countries are doing what they can to stop it, and those stay at home/shelter in place etc efforts have paid off. Unlike in countries that have balked at such and where it is out of control, like Brazil which has leaped to 2nd only to the US in both cases and new cases per day, and Mexico which is now #17 in number of cass, but #7 in terms of growth.

    Are you really this stupid MM? Anytime we get to the data or the numbers, you seem to just completely lose a capacity for reason. Is the only thing you are capable of doing is reading breitbart of fox and then echoing whatever line they feed you? I'm giving you the numbers - the actual data. I'm not going to some news source and feeding you their particular spin.

    The US is now officially over 100,000 deaths due to the corona-virus. We are still adding about 20,000 cases per day. And our numbers appear to have stopped their decline in what appears to be a response to 'reopening'. Georgia, Alabama, Florida, California are seeing rising numbers. California, once a purported 'anomaly' state is seeing a steady rise since April and is now at or near 100,000 cases.

    We had a lot of people out pretending all is well this weekend. So, based on a 5 day average incubation, stay tuned and look for increases in the daily active case counts beginning the end of this week and continuing through mid June with increases in death rates delayed a week or two from that.

    On tonight's BBC news (paraphrased): 'There are Greek Islands in the Aegean that have little contact with the outside world, and so have had no cases on Covid-19. We've going to visit one...'

    Aaaargh!

    IIRC some president or other predicted it would all be gone by April.

    Sometimes
    The congregation takes the other side
    An inquisition of familiar lies
    A grave distraction from a quiet rite

    Sometimes
    The congregation can't make up its mind
    Incarceration creeps up from behind
    The implication is its own device
    In the middle of a salient fight

    Sometimes
    The congregation can't be satisfied
    Can't be bothered with the ways and whys
    Generations like their ways and times

    It is so far gone with derails and nonsense, it deserves a swift death. Maybe we can infect it with COVID-19.

    How is THAT different from ANY Tweb thread?
