Gov Kay Ivey now extending “Stay at Home” order state-wide effective Saturday at 5:00 PM.
Exceptions: groceries, pharmacies, take-out and delivery food, essential businesses.
“Alabamians will stand together...just six feet apart.” LOL
and almost all businesses fit the essential definition

I have no clue why they lowed the deaths down by one, not a bad thing if it had been in error earlier, but probably someone from out of state or country

Yeah, I was really glad they added that info; very important. It doesn't tell us how many critical, etc, but still very good info.
With that info we can extrapolate fairly well how long the virus has been in the wild in the state. Also we will gain the knowledge of how virulent it is here.

Deaths and confirmed rose, but hospitalizations didn't, so I assume (maybe incorrectly) that they are testing all people who die, or at least the ones that might have been sick but not previously tested to see if they had it?

So, my daughter is having a hard time finding a place for my grandson to be tested.

The local hospital is only testing those that are actually being hospitalized or need to be.
The county health department is only testing old people and disabled people.
The drive thru place she called (over 50 miles from her house) didn't have any more test kits.
Some of the other locations, he is not sick enough yet (no respiratory distress and fever hasn't hit over 103 or whatever temp they reqruired.)

I gave her some more locations and numbers, but many are not testing on weekends.

My doctor sent me to be tested again. She is convinced the first test was somehow wrong. But the testing center wouldn't do the test. A friend has all the early symptoms, including the fever, as well as her daughter but they refused to test until she mentioned that her son was immuno-compromised. And we are in the early stages here.

You know, what does it REALLY mean when they say x number died of illness? Had assumed they meant covid. But that’s not stated on the chart. Is it somewhere else in the information as to what “died from illness” means? I mean otherwise I’m only making an assumption. (Or that’s how I see it). I am not seeing it anywhere, but on iPhone and half blind anyway...

Information about the Data and Surveillance Dashboard

Data Source: Alabama Department of Public Health Infectious Diseases & Outbreaks Division. All data is provisional and subject to change.
Data Definitions:
Total Tested
primarily represents tests that were satisfactorily performed by the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) Bureau of Clinical Laboratories (BCL), along with some data from commercial labs. Commercial labs are required by law to report positive and negative tests results to ADPH. Some commercial labs do not report negative results.

Reported Deaths and Died From Illness represent the number of individuals who have a positive lab result and are now deceased. To count a person who died from COVID-19 disease, the medical record of the deceased person has to be reviewed by a physician and Infectious Disease and Outbreak staff. Once review is complete, if the death is attributed to COVID-19, the individual will also appear in Died From Illness. Reported Death totals are cumulative and will never decrease.

Testing Sites are facilities who have reported to ADPH that they are collecting specimens for COVID-19. This map does not reflect all collection sites in Alabama. Call the testing site for additional information before visiting. Or call the Alabama COVID-19 24/7 hotline at 1-888-264-2256 for testing sites and hours of operation near you. interpreters are available. Note: There is no medical advice provided at this telephone number.

You have to scroll down from the link and it is in the notes. I post them off and on, and reposted them in the post above.

Thank you so much!! No wonder I didn’t see it. I have read the data you’ve posted on a daily basis and it never made me go “wait a minute, perhaps I have made an assumption “. And can’t tell you why I even thought that today. Thanks again for all you’re work on this!

You're welcome.

The first time I finally saw it and read it, there wasn't much info/explanation in it. They have added more explanations as they went along, it helps understand the info.
