To date, Mississippi had 526k Covid cases, 10k deaths due to covid + 10k deaths with covid a contributing factor, so 2% fatality rate is actually grounded in realitiy and not a fiction. The numbers have no bearing to Omicron in a vaccinated population but are astounding nonetheless.

What do you make of the “10% and counting” figure?

I have no idea where the data is coming from but it would make sense based on correlation of unvaccinated/lower socioeconomic/uneducated/more comorbidities. The staunchest anti-vaxxers are also the most likely to die if they get Covid.

I think you're giving to much credit to the tweeter to be parsing his language like that.

I saw it as hyperbole from the get go, just trying to make sure I’m not missing anything. Some of his other figures cited are defensible in some context, this one doesn’t seem to be.

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Don’t remember seeing positivity rates remotely close to this before

Anecdotally, 86.8% positivity rate is very difficult to believe. Especially with the flu around.

I agree but it’s more than one state so you tell me. My guess is that there is a prioritization of people who already tested positive on the antigen test.

Another possible explanation is that hospitals or other facilities are reporting quicker than regular testing and considering two days forward is double the case count that would skew the numbers dramatically (kinda like the shidduch crises).

Now is when you can distinguish the lockdown loving doomsayers from objective scientists.

Data is showing Omicron 20x less severe outcomes. This saga is almost over.

But wouldn’t they report both positive and negative results at similarly faster rates (kinda like if both boys and girls started dating two years earlier)? It’s a positivity rate, the equation would be positive results divided by all tests and represented as a percentage. Why would that go up if it arrives sooner?

Presumably hospitals have a much higher rate of positives

The Johns Hopkins national tracker only includes hospital testing?

I’m hypothesizing that data is coming in quicker

I guess that’s a possibility. But considering it’s blended between hospital and non-hospital data, the hospital positivity rate would have to be even higher (significantly?) than the blended rate. Whether it’s even possible would depend on what percent of the blended rate comes from hospital testing.

I live in NJ so only gonna talk about that 86.8% number. I know tons of people in Lakewood testing for flu/COVID and getting negatives for COVID, nowhere close to 86.8%. And many that test because of travel or other requirements. I don't see why that would be different around the state, the flu is going around so people with flu will likely test negative to COVID. If I had to guess, a more plausible number would be 30% or lower, which is still extremely high.
