Uh, duh. You are wrong. Yes one would expect to find more positive cases, but not necessarily a higher positive rate if the majority were doing the right things on time and if there were good consistent leadership.

So you are saying China ( the epicenter) has less positive cases? Psst, If you see some sheep don’t follow them, you may end up in the bottom of a ravine!

It’s crazy to be testing people with no symptoms

The test is only valid until that point in time it’s administered, You can be exposed to seconds after taking the test there by invalidating the test you just took.

The more people you test, the lower the death rate gets.

It's like all these people who claim they randomly got a positive test in the mail after getting out of line.

Stuff like that is making our death rate appear lower. This is all really good.

probably closer to 400 million if you add the undocumented citizens. But you make a valid point

Death rates are clearly the most relevant statistic

The US has 504 deaths per million population. India has 33 deaths per million population. How are you going to spin this?

India is not counting the people killed by tigers, unless the tiger tested positive.

You do understand (I hope) that a positivity rate has nothing to do with the number of tests — a rate is a percentage.
