COVID

May 4, 2021 3:31pm CST
Recently in Washington many counties got sent back to phase 2 because of infection rates. How do politicians come up with the numbers for the rates? I feel frustrated by the lack of clarity. Are you frustrated with COVID still lingering around?

@lstaben well i belive we are only shown two sides, protagonist and antagonist, both have some truth, but both sides never let the whole truth come out

Yes, I am. there's no specific source to check the no.s from, which govt makes up in their own house.

@lstaben Exactly. Some days infection rates are dipping, Some days it's reaching high. Covid test numbers are getting forged.

I really don’t know how they get the numbers.

Medicine and politics don't mix. Ever. I wish I knew how or where they're coming from, or how much of it is true.

Very fair comment, it is a tough situation and neither side is fully right.

How do politicians come up with the numbers for the rates? Well, that depends entirely upon the politician. Some make them up, some have staff to coordinate things like that.

I think both sides try and twist numbers
