I wonder where they get their numbers?
Since the Ohio Gov and the news media won't give any perspective on the numbers, here is an excellent site that line graphs the numbers, broken down by cases and deaths. Underneath the line graphs are state maps where if you put the cursor over a particular county you can get specific numbers for that county. Yes, Ohio overall in an extremely slight uptick in cases, but nowhere near what they were. The people in general that are currently getting covid now are not dying at the rate that it used to be either. This site isn't just for Ohio either, you can get stat's for other states as well. https://usafacts.org/visualizations/cor ... state/ohio
Here in KY our idiot gov still does daily press to cover the China Cough. He goes over the death rate and case numbers, the other day he said we had 8 new deaths for that day. Turns out we only had 4 new deaths that day and the other 4 was from a audit that reached back towards Christmas time.
I wonder that too. The Ohio department of health posts their raw numbers on their website, so maybe there? Here is the usafacts.org statement on their website:
USAFacts presents metrics on all US governments, from federal records to a growing collection of state and county data, including coronavirus data. We also produce a 10-K modeled on the document that public companies must submit annually to the SEC for transparency and accountability to their investors.
What makes USAFacts different:
We offer a complete view of government impact and finances, from the federal level to the county where you live. We’re always collecting and adding metrics from the nation’s more than 90,000 government entities.
We gather metrics from government sources and standardize them so they’re easy to grasp. That means detailed reports and clear, vibrant visualizations illustrating the data.
Factual and Unbiased
We rely only on figures from government agencies and present them without bias. You can use the data to judge the country’s direction for yourself. We don’t answer to a board or political group. We have no agenda other than improving debates — and, by extension, American democracy — with government facts that every American deserves to see.
USAFacts uses government data from many different sources, allowing you to see the big picture all in one place. Each metric is presented with historical context so you can make your own comparisons. Our visualizations are simple to navigate so that you can measure changes over time.
I just listened to part of a podcast on Covid given by Dr. Valerie Montgomery Rice, president and dean of the Morehouse School of Medicine, and her initial comments on the current
stat's is basically what I said, # of cases
are plateauing at a low level. but comparative cases of hospitalizations, ICU admissions, and deaths
related to covid are all significantly down.
All good news that the MSM could report but refuses to for some reason.
She did go on to say that herd immunity has not been reached yet and there is a concern about the numbers changing due to new variants, but for now covid is generally not the stressor on the health care system the way it used to be.
