  1. I’m shocked. Imagine, the positivity rate has been declining for the two weeks before the inauguration of Biden. The timing was a bit off, since it started while Trump was still in office, but I’m certain that fact will be sufficiently erased in short order.
    As I’ve clearly explained before, all these stats can easily be adjusted to deliver what those in charge prefer. By changing the number of tests administered, or reported, and by changing the number of cycles used in the test. More tests, more cases, and vice versa. Same for cycles used in the test.
