First, when I say "media", the reference applies mostly to the go-to outlets that Democrats own, and watch/read...CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, Washington Post.

As we know, the state of Florida has been a Covid-19 "hot spot" in the news, for the past month.

See the GRAPHS on Covid-19 Tracking page for Florida: covidtracking.com...
(You can hover your mouse pointer over the graphs to see each day's totals.)

-Notice that daily TESTING for Covid-19 peaked on July 12th, with 98,708 tests conducted on that day.
-Notice that daily CASES of Covid-19 peaked on July 12th, with 15,300 new cases diagnosed on that day.

When President Trump pointed out that the number of Cases increase as Testing increases, the media went ballistic. Angrily declaring that he didn't know what he was talking about. That there was "very little correlation" between increased testing and increased cases. That the Covid-19 case increases are because more people are contracting this "dreaded disease".

--------------------

-Notice that daily Testing for Covid-19 began earnestly declining on July 16th.
-Notice that daily Cases of diagnosed Covid-19 began earnestly declining on July 16th.

Apparently CNN cleared the fog of Trump-hate from their eyes long enough today to see the graphs I'm referencing. Guess what the network anchors and guests were saying?

Woof Blister: "The number of Covid-19 cases in Florida is dropping like a rock, Martha. We've discovered why...Look at this graph on our screen...the testing of Florida residents has been cut way back! Trump said he was going to cut back on testing, Martha. Look at what's happened as a result... Fewer CoronaVirus Cases!"

---------------------

SO...when Cases were increasing, it was because the deadly virus was spreading like wildfire. Not because the number of tests per-day was rapidly increasing, as the 'liar' President Trump said.

But, when the number of Cases are decreasing, it's because the number of Tests are decreasing, thanks to sneaky Trump.

The media this year are idiots on steroids.

I have a large testing center by my house in Houston. I jog by it daily. Going on months. NOBODY ever there. No lines. Not even a car. Once I saw some staff playing on their phones early on. Looks like they do that inside the AC trailers now...meh. This is a joke.

In my Chicago suburb, there were Covid-19 testing locations set up at 2 schools. Big flashing signs on wheels at major intersections, "Free Covid-19 Testing at St. Bard School and Little Piper School!".

There was so little interest, both sites shut down after 3 weeks. This was back in late May, when the Chicago area was a "Hot Spot".

A lot of people are getting conned by the Convid.
I’ll say it again and again.....I don’t know anyone that has had it and everyone I know doesn’t know anyone that has had it.
All I’ve heard is 3rd, 4th and 5th hand rumors for 5 months.
I’ll wear a mask in stores because I have to here in Michigan but beyond that.....f*ck them.

So, the fact that COVID hospitalizations also peaked means nothing? Are you serious? Or just that simple single minded?

Weird, the left are supposed to be the intellectual people, but can’t manage basic math. I’d say I’m surprised, but I’ve had the displeasure of exchanging thoughts with people on the left for the last 4 years. I think COVID is the least of our worries, I’m far more worried about TDS.

I waited in line for 30-45 minutes. At any given time here at a testing site in Florida near me there are 150-200 cars deep. There are a ton of tests being done in Florida. Sad part is that in some cases it take 10-12 days for a result. Kind of useless...right at that point?

Whilst I certainly do not believe official reports about the plandemic, the argument of "I don't know anybody who has it or had it" is a decidedly weak one that can be easily picked apart. The "official statistics" and narrative discredit themself. I actually do know someone that has had it.

Do what I do. I make them address the fact the store requires a mask. I then put my mask on get into the store and then remove the mask. Most of the time I see others see me without my mask on and remove theirs. If approached while in the store I put it back on until they leave, rinse and repeat. I have been escorted out once, but I mean who really cares. I just take my money somewhere else that day.

ETA: I know these employees are just doing their job, which is why I actually put the mask on when asked. No raising voices or anything. Hell, most of the time they tell me they don’t agree with it but have to do it.

It's disgusting how low of a Covid-19 threshold some states and cities have set for issuing inbound travel quarantines.

Here in Illinois, all inbound non-business passengers arriving at Ohare and Midway airports, from states that have more than 15 Covid-19 Positive Individuals, per 100,000 citizens, have to quarantine for 14 days. There are two large hotels in Chicago suburbs, filled with people who are quarantined.

15 Covid-19 infected people, per 100,000 citizens is TRIVIAL!

How many out of every 100,000 people have the FLU?


The MORTALITY Rate for Covid-19 is so small, the Deep-State-Run CDC is now lumping in Pneumonia and Influenza deaths with Covid-19 deaths to arrive at an artificially high mortality rate!!!

See the Mortality section at: www.cdc.gov...

Remember that time Rebeckah Jones was fired from the Florida Department of Health for NOT manipulqting covid numbers then all of the sudden the numbers spiraled out of control? The good old days....

Anyway, here is this

Obviously not as cool as you think you are being irrelevant in every thread.

Speaking of irrelevant?
Is this thread about masks? Or testing?

Learn how to read and keep up. That was a reply to a poster in this thread. If I wanted to talk to a drama queen, I’d walk down and talk to the Karen at the end of the street. Move along now Mr. Irrelevant.

Testing for covid does nothing to cure this disease, most of what they are spending a lot of money on just makes certain people wealthy. Just wear masks and social distance and do not take unnecessary risks.

If they did not lie so much and falsify evidence, maybe the people would believe them about the necessity to wear masks and social distance.

This is a real disease, and for some people, it is a severe threat. We need to be considerate and not endanger people. They have no antigen tests here to give people, people had illnesses back in february and march that were Covid like but the symptoms back then that they thought were conclusive were not, now those people would have been given a test. The government should be testing for antigens instead of active diseases.

TDS is what blew the reaction to Covid-19 out of proportion to the disease. The CURE is/was worse than the Disease, by a long-shot.

Definitely, skyrocketed unemployment numbers, high interest rate loans against actual tax payers, ruined retirements, lost homes. The list goes on and on. It’s like a left wing wet dream.
