        4200 new cases? That is 3 times as many as Minnesota and our numbers are out of whack.

          Wisconsin positivity rate over the last 7 days is 23%, including an astonishing 43% positive rate from results announced yesterday. What in the actual fvck is going on here?
          Positivity rate stat has always confused me a little. Wouldn't you kind of expect the rate to be high? Who goes to get tested unless they think there is a decent chance or they suspect it may be positive? Exclusions of course for those in high risk positions and get regularly tested.

            We should check. They probably are out getting flu shots, wearing masks, and getting tested. I bet if they stopped doing that **** they'd be a lot better off.

                    Taking a look at just one metric is never the proper methodology, but when one of those metrics in one Midwestern state is so far worse and out-of-whack with other Midwestern states the question is still valid.

                    To answer your question, no, I don't expect the rate to be high. Because, as you noted, a lot of people who may be asymptomatic are getting tested, as they should be. Wisconsin is clearly doing something wrong in comparison to other states. 9 or 10% compared to 7? That could be just the fortunes of war. But we are more than 4 times the rate of Ohio. That begs an explanation.

                              Correct. I have never heard of a meat raffle (unless we're talking about sororities). And I lived in farm country in Maryland. And, for that matter, in Upstate NY.

                                There is no greater sound then the clicking of the wheel of meat.

                                What do you guys do on Friday nights out there?
                                That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.
