This virus(CCP) stuff is being used by our politicians and medical people as a test to control the people. It has nothing to do with keeping the people safe. Stop baby sitting us and let us get back to our lives and take responsibility for our own actions. Your doing more harm than good. I still don’t know anyone who has had the virus(CCP) or been tested for it. I get tired of being treated like I am infected with something. This is nothing more than an anti-Trump virus. We never had this kind of reaction for any of the other versions of the flu in the past. And I get tired of my Constitutional rights being violated by illegal orders. AND I WON”T WEAR A MASK.

9% test positive=91% test negative. More panic porn from MNC. and a woefully incomplete report to boot. Where are the real reporters who have the ability to tell the whole story in a non panic manner?

We are literally just reporting the statistics given to us by the state health department. Just the facts, as they state them.

I can help but wonder what “positive COVID cases” truly means.

Does this mean that people who are currently positive are contagious and can transmit the virus? Or does this mean that you have the signs of having the virus in the past but you are no long contagious?

Are the known people that have been diagnosed and that are now over it still being counted as positive cases?

Where is the count of people that are no longer have COVID and are not contagions? I bet that would make the overall number go way down. But that wouldn’t be politically acceptable would it.

I thought this was to be the worst flu season ever. Where are all the statistics of the flu and how do they compare to COVID?

Is COVID like the FLU once I am over it i’m good to go until the next time I get it or if i get it?

The problem with the article John Zimney is that it reports the infectious rate deceptively. Kenton that is exactly what is going on here they are not taking the recovered cases out of the numbers of inflected. If someone woke up today from a coma they would think Indiana has 50000 infected people and they don’t. So yeah your reporting the numbers John but your also engaging in the fear mongering by doing that. Hey John what about a story on all the people that were reported positive but really were not? Let’s do some journalism not just regurgitation.
