1/ Today's Palm Beach Post newspaper's latest #PanicPorn from its resident "fear-mongerer" Jane Musgrave aka @pbpcourts.

2/ 800,000 have tested positive.

Current positive percentage is more about 5% in FL so that means more than 1 million of 21.5 million population are CURRENTLY INFECTED.

Most are asymptomatic.

Jane misses this "small" fact.
3/ Serology tests indicate that about 20% of Floridians have been infected with Covid-19.

That is not 1 million.

That is 4 million.

1/ Palm Beach County, FL Update:

Today, the @PBPost published yet another #PanicPorn article penned by @pbpcourts Jane Musgrave, trying to paint our situation as grim.
"We're in trouble in Florida," opines one "expert."

"This comes when you open too soon," scolds another.
2/ So what are they worrying about?

A rise in the number of "cases."

Ok, so let's look:

Cases have risen from recent 7-day average low of 115 up to 309.

But much of this is the result of increased testing.
From 3,460 to 6,181.
3/ Much more relevant is the positive percentage.

This metric, on a 7-day average to smooth daily spikes, had averaged less than 5% from Aug. 23 until Oct. 26 when it rose above 5%.

Has been less than 6% each day since.

Worth keeping an eye on it as the snowbirds return.

1/ Florida Covid-19 Situation:

Cases.

Appear to be rising by "date of lab datadump."

But continue to fall by "date of event," which for most cases is the date of the PCR test.

Labs are dumping old tests to create the illusion of "rising cases"?
2/ Florida Covid-19 Situation:

Hospitalizations.

Covid-occupied hospital beds hit new low on Sunday under 2,000 after mid-July peak of 9,500.

Slight uptick on Mon-Tue as happens each week.

Relative to "event date," hospitalizations continue to decline to new low of under 100.
3/ Florida Covid-19 Situation:

Deaths.

By date of death, continue to decline. Could miss a recent uptick.

Relative to event date, continue to decline in a big way.

Strong evidence that death are really continuing to decline.

1/ Today's Florida Covid-19 testing data update.

After a disastrous lab "data dump," we are "officially back below 5% positive percentage.
2/ Testing by month and then by day for past 14 days.

Do you see a "spike" from re-openings schools and colleges?

No?

Me neither.

Because there wasn't one.

So much for that #PanicPorn headline.
Hospitalization data.

Covid-occupied beds down from peak of 9,500+ in mid-July to less than 2,100.

No discernable rise in past few weeks.

Maybe this is as low as it goes with bogus PCR testing "false positives."

1/ #PaniPorn fear-mongerer Jane Musgrave @pbpcourts of the trashy @pbpost spreads misinformation about Covid deaths in FL & PBC.

"After a 4-day lull, COVID-19 deaths soared in Florida on Wednesday with 203 fatalities reported across the state, including a near-record 22 in PBC" ImageImage
2/ @pbpcourts reports:

"The number of deaths statewide is more than were reported in the past four days combined, and the most logged since Sept. 10, when 213 people were reported dead."

Yup.

@HealthyFla saved them up for your #PanicPorn headline.

9, 21 reported Sun-Mon. Image
3/ @pbpcourts reports:

"However, the reporting of deaths is often delayed by two weeks or more. It is unlikely that many of the deaths reported on Wednesday occurred within the past 24 hours."

Ya THINK SO?

You KNOW SO, yet you LIE to your readers.

Stop LYING, Jane Musgrave. ImageImage
