Bhramar Mukherjee, a professor of biostatistics and epidemiology at the University of Michigan who has been closely tracking the pandemic, says her models point to about 100 million infections in India now.

You do understand that lockdown and isolating seniors is avoidable, right? If you're strict about preventive measures to keep the virus from running rampant in your community/city/state/country, then people can live life. But refusing to take any precautions because "the numbers are low" or "there's no community spread yet" causes deaths, both from Covid, and from needing to isolate vulnerable populations.
That model involves letting the disease run itís course quickly. Switzerland is starting to allow visits to LTC facilities while the rest of the world has seniors on a perpetual lockdown to the point that any administrator in a nursing home will tell you the residents have no will to live, nothing to live for, and no end in sight, and many are succumbing.

Does this mean that the results of rapids are not counted in NJ?
Thats what it says.

This explains a lot about the low reported numbers in Lakewood without any conspiracy theories required.

Do urgent cares give rapid + PCR? Like how they do for flu/strep?

?.?.?? You said numerous times it is a conspiracy, in fact numerous conspiracies.
Guess they didn't get the "don't test" memo. It's fine though, the urgent care just won't report.


A pet conspiracy theory of mine right now.
I think it's a combination of that many, many people are just not testing, and doctors' offices not reporting to OCHD (conspiracy theory alert), so that govt shouldn't shut anything down.

Hatzolah has been getting multiple Covid calls a day for the past few days.

I had no other explanation. This is a plausible reason!

It's still true that there are doctors and askanim pushing for no testing (not a conspiracy!), but it makes sense that low numbers were combination of this and non reporting of rapids.

My conspiracy theory was that the urgent cares themselves weren't reporting. I didn't really believe it but I couldn't think of any other explanation of the discrepancy between the official numbers and the packed urgent cares. This would resolve it.

Why does there need to be an explanation? Why does your interpretation of things not adding up need to have an answer? I don't know isn't enough? That's what I don't get. Why do people need to have an answer to anything. Instead of conspiracy theories maybe we just don't know? And here you see there very well maybe a very logical explanation that we just didn't know.

A follow up on the Nashville "scandal." It's from CNN, but it's verifiable:

There have been a number of well documented instances of student-athletes developing heart conditions from Covid, which made them drop out of athletics. This whole "they ain't dead!" narrative is getting stale.

You mean the penn state report that was debunked?
Or the one or two real cases that are out there.
