    I'm glad there is an existing thread to post this in, so I don't have to try to put into words my thoughts while reading this.

    Question: Wes, you report net tests per day...then, net positive and negative #s are reported daily ...I understand it takes days to get test results following the actual day tested. So, are the daily tests taken daily, followed by positive and negative test results from last week? and test results are not all reported for a given previous day of testing. It seems difficult to derive actual positivity.

    Down below 7200 right now:

    Workbook: Public

    I want to say July 10th (4 weeks ago) was the last time it was below 7000.

    Yes (to the part in bold).

    The state has been less than forthcoming about testing information. There are so many easy questions that they could answer with a single FAQ page...if they wanted to, perhaps a couple of extra data points produced.

    I guess another "beware of data" from the link I provided in my previous post.

    Gadsden County shows 0 beds available, 0 beds used
    Gadsden County shows 0 ICU beds available, 0 ICU beds used
    Gadsden County shows 120 active "Hospitalizations with Primary Diagnosis of COVID"

    To put that in perspective. Gadsden County has a population of less than 50,000 people. Alachua County (pop ~ 275,000 and services surrounding counties) has indicated 126 active "Hospitalizations with Primary Diagnosis of COVID"

    Do people double-check the information they are submitting?
    Do they double-check the information that they are publishing?
    When somebody sees this and wants to point it out, do they have a way of receiving feedback?

    If the state Health Department's intention is to blur the lines and facts to cloak increased spread then, we have a serious problem. Citizens deserve the facts and nothing less.

    Health directors told to keep quiet as Fla. leaders pressed to reopen classrooms

    Following a directive from DeSantis' administration, county health directors across Florida refused to give school boards advice about one of the most wrenching public health decisions in modern history: whether to reopen schools in a worsening pandemic, a Gannett USA TODAY NETWORK review found.

    In county after county the health directors' refrain to school leaders was the same: Their role was to provide information, not recommendations.

    There are 45 million kids in the US from pre-k thru middle school. 28 kids under 15 have died with COVID. For comparison, 319 kids died of swine flu in 2009-2010 with hardly zero schools shut down. Just food for thought for everyone to mull over.

    This is because schools were almost universally shut due to COVID. You are comparing a full flu season, vs a virus that basically didn’t have a chance to spread in schools before schools were shut.

    It seems quite likely to me with schools re-opening in high virus areas, that COVID will approach and pass that 319 figure (which was full year figures). The even bigger issue is likely to be teacher deaths, and when we see teacher deaths the predictable outcome is teacher shortages when teachers start refusing to go to work. We might have teacher deaths in every county in the state before the fall completes.

    You act like kids haven’t been around anyone with COVID yet. Do you think kids have been living in isolation for the last 5 months? I mean out of 150k+ deaths, only 28 under 15. Your argument doesn’t add up.

    Yes, I think most kids have been in relative isolation, compared to a school environment. That was literally the point of closing the schools and going distance learning. That doesn't mean total isolation, but in the big picture the exposure to the virus was drastically reduced. Meaning far fewer kids were exposed.

    With schools opening, or being forced to open, it will certainly accelerate rapidly. I think more teachers will probably die than students, due to the risk disparity. But the numbers will easily be into the hundreds for students, and probably thousands of teacher deaths this fall due to COVID. It's basically just mathematical inevitability where the virus is not currently contained.

    Either you don’t have kids or your family is drastically different from most I’ve been around. My neighborhood has had kids running around playing in and out of houses since late May. Travel baseball/softball in Florida has been back since early May. Travel Basketball and soccer and football conditioning as well. Kids have been around each other. And I haven’t even brought up daycare or summer camps. The numbers are the numbers. Kids don’t get really sick from this luckily.

    I haven't seen kids running around any neighborhoods for at least a month; virtually all the deniers in my ultra-conservative area seem to have finally gotten the point... guys who wouldn't be caught dead in a mask 3 weeks ago, now treat it like an American Express card. They don't leave home without it.
