The percentage of cases that are being hospitalized or that have ended in death is still very high though, which makes me suspect that a lot of mild cases aren't being detected.
Yeah, I wonder if what I had in Feb. was COVID-19. I woke up at 3 am in the morning coughing so much I had to get out of bed and drive to Wal-Mart to buy cough medicine. It got me back to sleep. In the day time, I coughed so much it made my coughing muscles sore. Since I didn't seem to have high fever and throat wasn't sore, I didn't go to the doctor for it, but ended up wishing I did, since I had puss dripping down the back of my throat for the final days of it. I'm over it now. Anyway, I hope it was COVID-19, in order to have antibodies against it now. But I know it could have only been an upper respiratory bacterial infection.

Bill Watts was a part of pro wrestling for many years as a manager and administrator and announcer in WWE and all those things. He is pretty famous among these wrestling fanatics.

I don't ever watch anymore but as a kid I loved those old wrestling shows from the Stockyards Coliseum that were on WKY-4.

So the % for hospilizations is a strange catagory as every hospital admittance requirements vary. All other states hospitals may not admit until patients are really sick due to reasons like supplies or rooms available so Oklahoma being number 2 in this catagory dosen't mean much.
I thought the % of deaths vs number of cases was high & that part is a little scarier.
Also, are people just getting tests if they sneeze in other states? The number being tested is indictictive of the amount of people that go for testing. Is our testing rate low because people aren't requesting tests because they aren't sick or is it low because we don't have enough test?
That is the most important question?
