so if only one persona was tested and they were positive, the numbers would be 100%. OKAY WFSB.. nice scare tactic to keep your Democrat overlords in power. THIS IS ILLEGAL AND FAKE NEWS

Soxfan63

Also...If you had Covid weeks or even months ago, you can still test positive.

This "pandemic" is OVER, especially in Connecticut. Unfortunately the Branch COVIDians won't let it go

Brian C. Duffy

Can you get me on his show? I'd love to debate him on the air. I'm an early riser and only 15 minutes from the studio.

Brian Duffy ~~ Tariffville, CT

CEAGGY

Are you sure you are capable of debating? I’ve noticed your only rebuttal whenever your comments are challenged is “I use my real name online”

Verdad

The vaccinated would appreciate if the unvaccinated could bother to participate so the pandemic will end and we can all move on. Well duh!

Brian C. Duffy

SOL

Wellduh

The protected need to be protected from the unprotected by forcing the unprotected to use the protection that didn't protect the protected.

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Verdad

Interesting that out of 294 people hospitalized, 220 or 74.8% are not fully vaccinated.

Wellduh

I can't wait until the 5th variant when the people with 4 shots are blaming it on the people with 3 shots.

Verdad

You could just grow up and participate.....

Verdad

The daily positivity rate.....Out of 22,894 tests administered, 625 came back positive. That results in a positivity rate of 2.73%. Math is not that difficult.

On Thursday, 378,308 COVID-19 cases have been reported since the beginning of the pandemic, which is up 626 since Wednesday. Out of 21,386 tests administered, 626 came back positive. That results in a positivity rate of 2.93%. If any of you soxfan types are struggling with this simple math the answer is written on the back of the ivermectin package.

noturdaddy

ok tough guy.. % are based on population. Not by tested. So you are angry and want to take some action. You keep rocking the ivermectin insults...so what do you want to do? Please explain.

Brian C. Duffy

Cobarde is no tough guy, just a wimpy liberal like Dan, same as the cowardly conservatives on this site. I'll add you to the list. WFSB is going Gray soon. You're a little late to the party.

Who are you?

Brian Duffy ~~ Tariffville, CT. "real name, real facts"

Verdad

Get vaccinated....derr

CEAGGY

It is not a matter of “struggling with simple math”. Soxfan has a valid point regarding the validity of the metric. “% positive” as it is being employed is meaningless. If, in the entire state, only 10 people who have all the known symptoms were tested, the % positive would be very high. If we then tested a random 1 million people the next day, the % would be very low. What would that really tell us about the condition of the entire state? Would you conclude the virus was wiped out overnight? Of course not. Having the denominator in the % positive number be the population of the state would be a more logical; it keeps the denominator a constant and also puts the % in proper context.

Verdad

It is a daily positivity rate. So sorry that you don't understand.

CEAGGY

I'm not sure what led you to believe I don't understand the terms "daily" and "positivity rate". You are not addressing anything I stated. Do you not want to get into a discussion about what the denominator should be? I think anyone interested in applying basic critical thinking would, especially when this metric is one of the ones used for guiding mandates and policies.

Soxfan63

Shouldn't that 935 number (positive cases) be divided by the total population (3.5 million) to get the true positivity rate.

Oh sorry, that would then mean Covid is a non-issue and King Ned can't let that happen. He needs to continue is dictatorial reign

Brian C. Duffy

Keep wearing that adorable, hypocritical, online mask. It gives power to your words.

Brian Duffy ~~ Tariffville, CT

Soxfan63

You didn't answer my question. Not surprised though

Brian C. Duffy

"And BTW...I NEVER wear a mask, I go ANYWHERE I please, and do anything I want. And what makes that even more pleasing is that it bothers people like you to no end!"

Then take off your mask here and "bother" me. Comical.

Verdad

Wow you are dumb and lazy. Solid self own. Thanks for the laugh, stay in school.

Soxfan63

Answer my question

Brian C. Duffy

Find the kryptonite, both of you.
