This is what bothers me... there was an inflection point - in the wrong direction - about 2 weeks ago and it seems to be consistent, with the number of cases pretty much doubling in that time frame. Maybe more testing, maybe people getting complacent, who knows. But it certainly isn't flattening out down here. Interesting it's fairly consistent across age groups too other than <20.
Charlotte Hall Veterans home accounts for almost half of the total cases though (143 total, 97 residents and 46 staff!!) so maybe that's what caused the uptick?

I believe that the more they test, the more cases they’ll find. The statistics everyone was worried about was the amount of hospital beds and icu beds available. I think the numbers I heard the other night was something like 20,000 beds in Maryland hospitals but during this whole mess only 1,700 were being used. Look at NY, they sent the hospital ship up and it didn’t get used

Numbers don't tell the story. Those "positive" numbers have been so doctored up that none of them can be trusted.

Care to elaborate?

I'm curious on how you think they are being doctored. Do you mean that they aren't reporting accurately, skewing towards over reporting/number inflation, or under reporting?

I wouldn't say doctored but believe they use whatever numbers they want for the desired agenda.

More than likely doing what Virginia is doing. Testing 1 person that tests positive then test them again in a week then test again the next week. This process can give 3 positive results on one person but they use the 3 to inflate the numbers. Do that to 10 people and you can have up to 30 positive tests. I need to find the article where that was discussed.

This is a statistical reality. The hope is that the increase in the 'denominator' (total tested) will prove an overall lower percentage of "known cases". Of course, anomalies happen, but that's the 'norm'.

See the main Wuhan thread for what might just be an example of fudging for effect, in a story from The Atlantic, of all places.

Maryland has been aggregating negative tests from individuals. Tell me how that gives us accurate information?!

These entities are playing into a simple fact... people hate math, believe their leaders, and won't think proportionally. The vast majority of people simply--and vapidly--accept what comes in their daily Cracker Jack box.

Critical thinking? Yeah right.

I have one example on how they are fudging numbers. My wife's aunt has tested negative 3 times but the say she has it because of an MRI. So if you test negative but they think you have it you have it. If that's not doctoring numbers I don't know what is. I've heard of other cases but I have only first hand knowledge of this one.
