Right because all those people would have died anyway in the week since they contracted the virus.

Someone can have COVID-19 and simultaneously die from an unrelated issue. Many people have COVID-19 with no/minor symptoms, but if something else comes up and they go to the hospital, they're going to test positive.

Best/simplest way to check that (I guess) would be to compare average number of deaths with # of deaths during this time...although that still might not give an accurate picture, because with health system being overwhelmed, more people are likely to die from other causes anyway.

As of 4 days ago, death rate in Lombardy was up 80%. Keep in mind, the deaths per day doubled twice since then..

That's what it should be or less. How much is taxes in CLE?
Here we have 1.93/gal in taxes so the gas is actually .01  :)

He mentions that they are running out (presumably referring to local pharmacies). Is that going to be a problem on a larger scale if others take his approach?

Also, looking for statistics on percent of tests that result is positives (from a real news source)
Anecdotally, the walk-in health center in BoroPark that tested 1000 people, had 100 positives.
