The numbers for “record deaths and new cases surging” is misleading at best. Hospitals have not been differentiating between people who die from Covid-19, and those who die with Covid-19. Hospitals are getting govt funding for patients admitted FOR Covid-19, and for deaths listed as caused from Covid-19.Philip wrote: ↑Sat Jul 11, 2020 7:33 amRecord deaths and new cases surging - hey, here's an executive decision from Disney in Florida:

To be clear - I have no problem with re-opening. But the stupid just don't seem to get it - and many of them WILL! The problem is that so many people don't think it's a thing to even be concerned about.
And secondly, here in Florida, the testing process is speeding up, and far more people are being tested. More positive test results does not necessarily equal more people with the virus. Some who weren’t tested before, but were infected, are now being tested.
The only way to see if this pandemic is getting worse, would be to see if the deaths per 1000 in a population, CAUSED BY COVID-19 is going up. And as has already been said, we know the death rate is being exaggerated.
