      This is a very interesting thread! Below are the numbers from my country, the thing is haven’t been doing math for around 15 years. I was hoping one of you gentlemen could help fill in the number at the bottom of my post?

      Total Cases: 187.320

      Total Deaths: 1.720

       

      Looking deeper we get:

      Recovered: 165.166

      Total Active Cases: 20,434

      Total Tests: 11.721.588

      Total Tested population: 4.061.221

      Population: 5.837.213

       

      Just over ?,???% of the population has recovered from covid, or ??? out of every 100,000 people.

      Or better yet, just over ??% of those who got covid has recovered so far, or ??,??? out of every 100,000 people.

      Death rate for these numbers is 0.00918%

      Total cases vs population is 0.032%

      recovered rate from total is 88% but since the death rate is 9 in 100000 the numbers dont meet in the middle.

      They claim they have more then twice your population is unused tests? why?

      tested population 69.5%

      @MrDragonbane there is nothing strange about how many tests were given.

       

      The same person can be tested multiple times, especially if they are sick/hosiptalized.

       

      That is one reason why I like to use the number of people tested, not total number of tests given.

       

      In sports, for example, many leagues require their players/staff/etc to be texted three times a week.

      If one is tested positive, then a second test the next day is made to make sure it was not a false positive.

      8,652 active cases — the lowest total seen since Nov. 12.

      626 being treated in hospitals of which 108 are in intensive care

      111,662 Recovered cases

      1,587 deaths

       

      99,814 vaccines have been given with about 10,000 having gotten the second shot.

      test results are very random. it’s very easy to test positive even if you dont have the virus.

      We should have a more efficient way of testing.

      #207439

      7,530 active cases

      582 being treated in hospitals of which 103 are in intensive care

      114,586 Recovered cases

      1,631 deaths

       

      2,839 confirmed cases per 100k residents

      #207881

      6,599 active cases

      539 being treated in hospitals of which 94 are in intensive care

      116,820 Recovered cases

      So officially, we have less new per day cases as we did at the height of our first lockdown. (Back in April).

      total since the beginning of 68,780
      278 hospitalized of which 80 are in ICU

      4,426 active cases
      61,643 recovered
      142146 vaccine doses have been administered, 6417 (+1320) of which are second doses

      16 additional deaths, total now of 1234

      #208321

      6,242 active cases

      434 being treated in hospitals of which 81 are in intensive care

      118,816 Recovered cases

      1,709 deaths

      #208507

      5,831 active cases

      427 being treated in hospitals of which 78 are in ICU beds.

      119,678 Recovered cases

      1,722 deaths

      124,000+ doses of vaccine have been administered so far, with 32,700 people now fully immunized with two doses.

       

      And still I hear from the news/radio the medical community is calling for more funding, more medical related jobs, exhaustion, etc.  No other industry matters as they are essential – you are not.
