Tropical Storm Gonzalo warning cone was *just* updated by the White House

Guess someone's a bit miffed at not being able to sell off Puerto Rico....

FL's 7-Day trends for Covid showing maybe perhaps some signs of hope?

Seeing the 7-day trends either rising more slowly or actually appearing to plateau and even tick downward on some.

All of my data can be seen here:

(data based on daily FL DOH PDF report)

Today, I got the call!

Next week will be my last week on furlough! After 14 weeks of it I will be officially back to work (remotely) a week from Monday!

Fight Florida Covid propaganda

Ok folks. This news is starting to go viral. Just saw it posted by “louder with Crowder” and Breitbart has been “reporting” it, too.

A local Fox35 reporter finally dug into the FL DoH PDF and saw some oddities in lab results. Several hundred labs (mostly reporting single digit results) had 100% positivity

They contacted a couple of the larger labs (still just a few hundred results total...keep in mind the largest lab used in the state has returned 58,000 positive results) and found positive % were much lower (9.4% and 6%, respectively)

What was going on? Simple

We’re talking like 0.2% of ALL 3.3 Million tests performed since March. Some small labs (all less than ~500 positive results reported, vast majority in single digits) were not submitting negative results to the state

This does NOT affect the # of cases and will barely affect the overall % positive from March til now. So, keep this in mind when conspiracy theory-minded partisans try to use this as some sort of proof that FL is not experiencing a massive surge in new cases (we are)

“FOX 35 News went on to speak with the Florida Department of Health on Tuesday. They confirmed that although private and public laboratories are required to report positive and negative results to the state immediately, some have not. Specifically, they said that some smaller, private labs were not reporting negative test result data to the state.”

FWIW, I dug in some, myself. I wanted to weed out realllly small labs that were likely used in the beginning when one had to be symptomatic to get a test, which would result in that lab having really high positive rates

So this image is all labs with >75% positive rates but >50 positive tests

Amounts to 7,608. Note we’ve had 3.3 Million tests overall since March so this % is minuscule and not gonna affect anything really

The Federal PPE Stockpile That Trump Bragged About Is Almost Gone

The Federal PPE Stockpile That Trump Bragged About Is Almost Gonehttps://www.politicususa.com/2020/07/14/the-federal-ppe-stockpile-that-trump-bragged-about-is-almost-gone.html

The federal PPE stockpile was never as great as Trump claimed, but also, Trump gave away part of the federal stockpile to foreign countries as he claimed that the US didn’t and wouldn’t need it.

The President was very wrong.

The administration is claiming that there is plenty of PPE, but doctors and hospitals are telling a much different story about a shortage that is getting worse by the day.

The fall second wave of the virus isn’t even here yet, but Donald Trump has the country in such sorry shape that those treating coronavirus patients don’t have the PPE that they need, even as the president pushes to reopen the country.


Still Obama's fault??

More from "pro-life" fox and "friends"

So, a few months ago, “pro-life” republicans were willing to sacrifice older Americans for the economy.

Now they want to sacrifice America’s school children!

Just how exactly are they “pro-life”?!?!

Brian Kilmeade says schools must re-open in the fall in part because "life is full of risks, kids should learn that early that life is full of hurdles, you've got to find a way to overcome."

Hamilton

Really into this on Disney+. So well done

Miranda is a genius with his lyrics

And here's the turn, likely. All trends in FL have now worsened

Highest 2-day totals for hospitalizations and deaths. % Positive trend ticked slightly higher yet again, too.
