Oh, I'm talking absolute science-denier rates. You know, because those people actually exist and are increasing.

The number of deaths are still the same and still going up.

How may died in wars compared to how many fought vs how many died in the war compared to the total population?
Does using the latter make some people feel better about how many died in the war?
That's all it is when debating these type of numbers

Not really. This is all about calculating risk.

BTW, war numbers are always off as they rarely actually include non-combatants anyway.

Which was my point although I might not have made that clear.

It's also second cup of coffee for me. Those #'s also don't include the post-hostility issues.. like people setting off land mines 40 years after cessation of hostilities.

Not sure where that data came from but according to the CDC website Ohio is at 48 new daily cases per 100,000 population and the US is 41.5.

I don't understand what you're saying.

People have been tested over time. X have tested positive at some point (the total confirmed cases for the county to date). X represents a certain percent of the total population of the county. I'm pretty sure that's what DavidSauls was referring to when he said 4.5% of his county have tested positive.

I don't think that 2.5 number was for total time but for recent cases. I can't find that now (I think it was in a headline I read) but this shows the numbers for Ohio recently.

Ohio surpassed its previous COVID-19 case record by nearly 1,000 on Friday, according to the Ohio Department of Health. ODH reported 8,071 new diagnoses that afternoon, up from 7,101 the day before.

The state’s “curve,” which springtime shutdowns sought to flatten by closing businesses and schools, is now nearly vertical. The daily new-case record has been broken 16 times since Oct. 13, when the all-time daily high stood at 1,840.

Yeah, I just realized that this morning.

A dozen cases one day, a dozen another, maybe a death every other day, doesn't seem like much. But in a county of 30,000, turns out it's a lot.

Oddly.....South Carolina is having a less-severe outbreak right now, compared to most of the country. We were near the tops back in the summer. (That "less severe" phrase reflects a bit of conditioning; it's still terrible).

I can’t wait to get the vaccine. Wife’s idiot nephew is getting married in May complete with a big reception for 80+ people. I hope I can get the vaccine by then. I kind of doubt it at this point.
