We should worry much more about them

They have double the deaths per day than we do.
NC cases have gone up, so what? That means very little, we are finally ramping up testing. Hospitalizations are important. Hospitalizations have slowly risen, nothing major since we have 3.5 million people and now dropping to under 900 hospitalizations, we were at just over 700 a month ago. When you thrown in everyone who tests positive at their presurgery screenings and not admitted gets counted, and apparently there are other ways you can count it as COVID because you get more money then there really is not much rise. It is smart to test, if you are treating someone for diverticulitis and you test them for COVID and they are positive your payment just went way up.
Deaths are actually trending down in NC. At the beginning of the month we had a 7 day rolling average around 22. We are down to around 14. How can this be with so many more cases and so many more hospitalizations?
The goal was to flatten the curve, then we can open up. Did that. Now I guess it is to control everything until there is a vaccine.
