Took much longer for cases to get serious than the first wave though.
When do you consider the first wave to have started?
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

Right after Purim. By Pesach things were crazy but after that things started getting in control.

The in-between came a little after Shavous.

The peak was between Purim and Pesach. It started way before then.

Early signs of a new wave in NJ? New cases have more than doubled over the last 5 days.



Compared to NY which is still trending down.

I just don't get how NY has been so static at 6-800 cases a day for so long
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Something to keep an eye on. Keep in mind that daily tests have gone up and the positivity rate has not budged that much so likely some increase, but the doubled numbers should be taken in context.

That's not what I'm seeing on a couple sites. Covidtracking shows tests have gone down recently before going back to normal the last couple days. And NJ state data is showing down trends as well. https://www.state.nj.us/health/cd/documents/topics/NCOV/COVID_Confirmed_Case_Summary.pdf

2 things are clear from either source. The testing rate hasn't doubled and testing is not at its peak.

My neighbor in shul had Corona with everyone 4.5 months ago and had tested positive at the time.
Last week he had surgery for something and needed to get tested beforehand. Test was positive... It's obviously remnants and I think chances are that a big part of the positives in the Tristate area are of similar nature.

You can't ignore the fact that there were thousands of additional tests administered. I would love to see the positivity rate, it's probably lower than it's been recently.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Almost all needed results before the middle of last week.
