I work on a campus with about 25,000 working in 1 sqr mile. We've had 2 people test positive. One was a construction worker running a pylon shredder. The other was a technician. My co-worker, who was quarantined on the Diamond Princess in Japan, returned to work last 10 days ago. We've gone down to technicians holding down the fort with managers and engineers working from home. They've removed 90% of the chairs from the cafe with social distancing police in orange vests being obnoxious on as many levels possible. All this as Oregon has suffered some 22 deaths.
A coworker was plotting new cases and made himself an expert. It was starting to piss me off so I explained that new cases was simply a function of a state's desire to test. The more tests are made, the more the number goes up. Deaths was the only real metric, though that is being inflated too. If someone dies of a heart attack and test positive for Wuhan Virus, it is recorded as a death. The "first infant to die related to COVID 19!" was accidentally smothered by a babysitter who instantly called the paramedics and the whole story was known up front.
