The 91 cases exist, what I am saying is that they may have occurred several weeks or months ago and are only now updating the total. They make analysis of a current 7 day trend line very difficult if not impossible since we don't know how long ago they occurred and when to expect them to be added to the totals.

I would much rather see additional cases found by review of the data added on a specific day of the following month. I.e. additional cases found by review reported on the 15th of each month.

Understand completely - I misinterpreted your post. I apologize for inferring you were unconcerned with the cases reported from the correctional institute.

The "fault" here is the premise. When this started, it was my understanding that these were actual reported confirmed cases and they were daily reports. Turns out that is not the case. There was a "dump" a while back for cases that were, til that point not thought to be Covid-19. There are no footnotes as to what changed that number. I will assume it has to do with the death certificate reports that finally were caught up with Public Health. Again, I don 't know.

Thus, we really have a meaningless number in terms of current "actuality" in DE with the cases. It is however, a barometer of sorts, to use for decision making and justification, with the reality being that the number is no more valid than the control group used to arrive at it. I will bet that Dr. Rattay of DOH, would agree with that statement.

It is certainly no worse than other states tally of cases.

Sorry to derail this but I had to go to a "happy place" yesterday and for me that is Christmas time. Just wondering IF, you still send cards, will you do so this year?

I do, and more than I would like, but, we did move. Wondering what others think? Maybe I should start a thread elsewhere.

My wife & I went to the state health department's testing site at the Walgreens in Bridgeville yesterday. It is a drive thru site with no cost, symptoms, physicians order's or appointments needed. There wasn't much of a line and the whole process took about a half hour. The only documents requested was your drivers license or state issued I.D.. I felt the site and process was well run and overall was not an unpleasant experience. We are aware of the recent issues involving some test results from that location.

I am curious if our results stats will count towards Kent County where we reside or Sussex County where we were tested.

Nuts - we still send cards and will definitely send cards this year. Most years, I started ridiculously early because I like to write individual notes to everyone and that takes time during a time of year when we're usually pretty busy. It just seems more important than ever to remain connected to people in whatever way we can.
