A few mistakes in the representation of the data, that are quickly corrected, does not mean the entirety of the data is bad, it doesn't even mean any of the data is bad, just that it got jumbled up when being displayed.

No I said there would be data/numbers from:


Increased testing


Increased antibody testing


Those are two separate things from two different sentences in my post. You had no clue what antibody testing is. You don't find out you have the antibodies from a regular test. You don't find out if you have antibodies unless you take an antibodies test.

For the second time, these are the words that you chose to write:

You did not say "confirmed cases" or "recorded cases." You said "cases." Cases. Instances. Your implication was clear. More testing -> more people have antibodies. Or maybe you want to revise it.

Now. Back to the topic at hand. Why do you think Kemp's ineffective response to the virus is so unpopular with Georgians?

What does this have to do with Kemp's unpopular response to the virus?

Lol that he made the right decision. MD’s are coming out in force to lift the lockdown. It was an unpopular decision weeks ago when we didn’t know as much as we do now but now things are have changed for the better which will end up being really good for Kemp.

Can you please prove this using an unbiased source?

That is pure speculation at best. I'd love to see the numbers go down faster like they are in states such as Washington or kept low like states such as Oregon, but you and I clearly disagree as to whether that will happen. I predict that best-case, we're going to see an agonizingly slow decline. Worst-case, we'll get a second wave like Texas is getting.

We all know you want this to fail.

Huh? We clearly have differing opinions about what it will take to get the coronavirus out of here, but I am open to changing if a sufficient case can be made. Now if the doctors who you alluded to represent the general consensus of doctors, then I'll consider their opinion. But I first need an unbiased source to tell me that that is what they're saying, not just one or two out of thousands.

No my implication in two separate sentences was with more testing we are going to have more positive cases now from COVID 19 tests. In my second sentence I said there are also going to be antibody tests done ‘those’ meaning the separate antibody test. How was it that another poster knew exactly what I was saying but you didn’t? Oh that’s right you are the guy that is trying to argue that despite all the info we have since May 1st:

It's pure recklessness. By reopening too quickly like this, many more people will die, and we're going to have to take protective measures for even longer.
Which the science tells us hasn’t happened. Welp.
