Another of our staples, courtesy of Dave Dixon. The thing that stands on on this set is again, the dramatic rise in useless testing, accompanied by more non-cases. You can see the trough when schools were out and we had little of this testing. And the hospitalization rise isn’t due to CV-19, it is hospitalizations for another reason with an incidental (and probably wrong) positive test. We have a lot of people in the hospital but they didn’t go in for CV-19 treatment. The heavy death toll in September is, I believe, among the vaxed old.
The shape of the current curves versus last year is driven by the effects of vaccination, it is blunting the rise in most events and I believe will result in more rounded wave of events. DOH, however, just flat out lies and refuses to provide data that would help the public actually understand current dynamics, including the truth about hospitalizations, events among the vaxed and the number of false and low positives from forced school testing.
