Find out later on today what further lockdowns are going to be put in place (if any). Few more community cases found, but so far all of these have been in Auckland which is already shut off from the rest of the country. Instead of letting people self-isolate like they did last time - all cases found are being moved to managed isolation facilities.

Stupid conspiracy crap being shared around that was the goverment's plan to have us in complete lockdown by Oct and will be bringing in the military any day now

Also - glad to see the number in Aus way down from where they were about a week ago

Is it confirmed as a freezer case? Or quarantine breach?

No word yet.
I did read just before that there's a confirmed case outside of Auckland. Looks like my trip up north next week will be off

The cold freezer virus idea seems to be gaining traction. It wouldn't be the first such case if it was.

It'd be nice if the CDC exerted some effort to encourage responsible reporting of numbers.

I always see # of new cases in a day reported, which is really a useless number.

NC's dashboard has charts for "Cases by Day of Specimen Collection" and "Deaths by Date of Death," both of which are MUCH less sensational then the daily total and death reports. Earlier this week, we reported an "all time high record of 45 deaths in a day," but if you look by Date of Death, we've never had more than 35 people die in a day, and usually under 20, and the peak was 2 weeks ago.

I like how our reporting is done. Total cases, total recovered, total deaths, new cases, number hospitalized, number in ICU, new deaths. We seem to be getting pretty good at keeping the bolded numbers down even though new cases have gone up a little.

I've been curious as to why NC's death percentage is so much lower than other parts of the country.

New poll today shows that 35% of Americans will not get a vaccine, should one become available. :shake:

Fresh mountain air. Fresh sea air. We're a finer crop of humans here in NC. Look at me and Ruddo.

They were told to bypass the CDC, which is more independent and based in Atlanta, and send information directly to its parent org (HHS), which is directly tied to the administration.

And then the HHS Chief Information Officer resigned abruptly last night.

Yes but only to an extent. This image certainly oversimplifies it but it's quite clear that, among so-called "developed countries" the US almost uniquely shit the bed in terms of pandemic response.
