Yeah man. Check the completely arbitrary numbers! The CDC estimates we could be approaching 100 million infections but I guess it's only for realz if it's put up on the daily scoreboard.


Can I use the 3,100 deaths as justification for action, or is that too arbitrary as well?

I literally have no idea what Verb is arguing any more (if I ever did), he just seems to like to tell us we're all wrong, no matter what we are talking about.

I'd prefer if you used the 7 day average.

The number of deaths obviously matters, but as spike said above, it's all about hospital capacity. And that's starting to get a bit scary.

We've been completely incapable to disconnecting those three numbers. Until we do, all the numbers matter.

Cases spike --> Hospitalizations spike --> Deaths spike

You wouldn't like a warning that your hospitals are about to get slammed?

It doesn't take a metric ton of PCR tests to figure that out though

i think i get what you're getting at... that it's so out of control in america that cases are almost meaningless at this juncture. that number will become more important once/if we can get things under control, however. like it is in nations like NZ or AU, where they've nearly gotten rid of it.
