How many times do we have to explain this


First of all its less than 200 hospitalizations over a state of 3.5 million people.
Second, testing is being done a lot more so if someone is in the hospital for something else and has a symptom you get them tested. If its positive you move them to a COVID floor and get paid a lot more. You could be in for a heart attack and have a temp and you get COVID as a test and diagnosis if positive.
Third, Everyone who gets any surgery gets tested and if positive is considered a hospitalization even though they are not admitted. Go in for a cataract surgery but test positive. You are a Covid hospitalization.
All of these things show we are finding out more people have it, doesn't mean that it is more than we had before.
We flattened, crushed the curve. It really seems like people want this to be a lot worse than it really is.
