I thought that I would never have to report this again – the USA’s testing percentage is back in the red zone. The last date reported was July 31st, and 10.1% of the country’s 340,000 tests came back positive. Only 44 days ago that percentage was lower than 2.0%
Weekend results are incomplete and therefore deceptive. Only 14 states filed Sunday reports.
CDC’s weekly summary:
“The current 7-day moving average of daily new cases increased 64.1% compared with the previous 7-day moving average.”
“The current 7-day moving average of new deaths has increased 33.3% compared with the previous 7-day moving average.”
