I don't know how you did that. I've been trying for 3 days to copy stuff on that site, so I can report it here, with no results.
Well. Supposedly, here in Alabama you MUST go through health department so you can be cleared for testing for 19. I don’t get it.Not certain what is being asked re: inclusion of health dept data : There are a handful of differing aggregators shown on this thread. Off hand, I can't think of any of them having spoke to the whys of which data sources they use. IIRC from the way back machine, it was always a problem sorting fact from rumour, and getting accurate counts when relying on faulty and misinformed media and word of mouth reports.
Doing the gene sequencing and tracing work really required confidence in the cases, as well as the intake methods and info, which is probably in some part responsible for preferring those channels for info gathering. But I'm just thinking out loud, and guessing.
I see. Not sure I've seen that asked, nor answered, anywhere. Probably something to do with streamlining responses, establishing clear chains of commands and keeping things simple, clean and efficient lol. As we progress we will definitely be fighting this cheek to jowl, belt buckle to belt buckle. For this reason, I actually would like to see a strong health dept oversight/chain of command, because each community will be relying on a well supplied and informed commander on the ground who has knowledge of their piece of the picture. Additionally, all the tedious book work, t crossing and i dotting that will be required to enact any federal and state aid is probably best handled by agencies such as that, and will take the burdens off the ind. HC providers. Again just initial thoughts, def. w/o much thought...Well. Supposedly, here in Alabama you MUST go through health department so you can be cleared for testing for 19. I don’t get it.
Other day woman who tested for flu (don’t know details) was told do NOT come to HD. Go to ED. She had recently returned from Italy. I simply don’t get the reason the health department is involved at all. Though they are supposedly who you call first even from doc’s office. Seems lame. Too many cooks in the pot.(As far as I can tell)
No answer from them, unless it's buried in the spam folder: all I'm doing at this point is taking screen shots and saving or pasting. Hope this helps!I don't know how you did that. I've been trying for 3 days to copy stuff on that site, so I can report it here, with no results.
I also want to thank you for finding and sharing this. I check it a couple of times a day to see if anything has popped in MS.
|I see they have switched the source to phone #s, presumably to the local health depts. Also I forgot to mention they have added a 'case fatality rate' figure for the individual states. Yes yes yes, i know, no one knows the real numbers- but if the way they derive their snippets/#s over time remains constant, then it should permit one to draw apples to apples comparisons to rate, trajectory and outcomes....j|
No, that's percentages... and a VERY confusing graph. Still, the real "official" numbers aren't a lot better... last I saw (post right above this) is 50 deaths, 41 recovered. Now, this *isn't* "just those who were hospitalized", but it IS "only those deemed to fit the criteria to be tested"... meaning there sre thousands of others, with everything from "too mild to bother talking to a doctor" to "very bad, but the local health department has turned deaf ears to the doctors pleading to test them".Wait, wut? That graph in post #169.... it indicates that there are almost 3 times as many deaths as recovered patients?!!! Death rate just under 75, recovery rate just over 25. (Per the cited website United States Coronavirus: 1,329 Cases and 38 Deaths - Worldometer, death rate in the US (of resolved cases) is 72%?!!!) WHOA!
I HOPE that death/recovery rate is based on those that are sick enough that they actually end up at the hospital, which is only a small percentage of the total cases. Otherwise... Captain Trips (or a close facsimile) is here. (70% infected x 72% mortality ~~ 50% deaders.)
