Do you have Coronavirus? Were you tested?
« on: March 21, 2020, 11:14:53 PM »
i have all classic symptoms but local doctors just seem to say hunker down and let it pass. was wondering if thats what everyone is doing or everyone is getting tested. if no one is getting tested, wouldnt that skew accurate numbers significantly?

Don't you realise that they figured out a great way to flatten the curve.
Less tests means less new cases.
The only problem with this is that the death percentage is very skewed.

Just watch the death curve. They can't skew that.
We have no idea how many cases are out there. We want the death curve to change.

If that describes you, just wait. Your answers might change. (Hopefully not, but that's reality...)

Is there a statistic for the rate of tests in US that are positive?

You think half or more of the population will get it?

Care to elaborate? Are they over testing "privileged" people? What is the skewed #?

If you only test those that are showing all the signs it will be skewed towards positive. Just like the death rate is skewed toward the high side.

Why is that skewed. Iím assuming they are only testing people who actually suspect they have been affected. Iím curious as to what the actual number of people are infected vs people who think they are.

How would you get a count of people they think are infected?
