Any update on numbers in lkwd? Hundreds of kids are getting tested now for camp....
As of last Friday morning there were 17 new cases that CHEMED was tracking since beginning of July.

I've heard that there were 8 new cases this week, but i haven't confirmed that with CHEMED info yet.

1-2 frum cases a day would seem consistent with the picture weíve been seeing.

Yup, been hearing an average of "4-5/week".

I'm surprised there is not many more. Thousands of people have gotten the virus and people who are better can still test positive for months (my case was 3.5 months later!!!).
I'm not who you think I am.

CHEMED is only tracking legit *new* cases. Not people who test positive.

Aha. So these cases could also be a bunch of the people who got it in the beginning but never tested (till camp or whatever) and now are getting false positives.

No, CHEMED is tracking legitimately new cases. Not just a positive test.

How do they know if the person just caught it, or if he is testing false positive for the first time even thou he is better now.

They rely on the doctor reporting it to determine this.

20 cases recorded in a day. My feeling is that it doesnít really change the overall picture. I still think indications are that Lakewood has some degree of herd immunity. Herd immunity does not mean that everyone in Lakewood is immune. It simply means that enough people are immune to prevent it from spreading exponentially.  It was always anticipated that there would be more cases among those who are not immune, especially as thousands of Lakewood residents are traveling and returning from all over the country where they are exposed to places where covid is still prevalent. However, 20 cases is something to take note of and  keep a watchful eye on the situation.

Hereís what I donít like: when the numbers are manipulated to suit a preconceived viewpoint. The data should be viewed objectively for what it is, not used to push one side of the story.

Take a look at the original archived story and the new one that replaced it:

I wish people would understand this and take precautions instead of acting recklessly because of "herd immunity".

They don't even mention the spike in positives in the new article.

And how is the new article BREAKING news?

You're right, that's why they had to pull the original story that was missing critical information, like the fact that there were so many more tests given.

I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

But the original article does include that? All they did was REMOVE a critical fact that there were more positives.
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.
