Don't disagree that more tests are needed for a valid statistical analysis. However, I would think that the number hospitalized is what we should be concerned with. If those are level or are decreasing, then we are on the road to victory. I don't follow the numbers so I don't know what the trends are.the last 24hrs 2.880 tests been done.
ONLY 2.880 tests for the whole country.
and that is the Record High Number of all days since testing started.
this is Way too FEW, by far.
there should be 5.000 or even up to peaks of 10.000 tests run each day(peaks during specific activities like intervening certain areas/cities etc as done once in a while), since the Beginning of testing, EVREY Day.
hence, til now there is no real picture nor statistic which would allow to assume the number of infected, immunized etc in the DR.
the daily new infections statistic shows rising numbers primarily due the slightly rising numbers of tests done now,
not becaus emore people would get infected these days.
with barely tests done, no statistic shows any real thing, not even any real Trend, and the Trends would be the important statistical thing necessary to decide about success or failure of each reopening phase, to decide if at some point more restrictions would be necessary or a further opening could be brought on.
the numbers of hospitalized citizens will def rise for a while.Don't disagree that more tests are needed for a valid statistical analysis.

...and put on sunscreen to walk to the mailbox while carrying a umbrellaOh well Alex it is best you stay home except only to visit the grocery store. Perhaps another 3 months in your house things will be safe enough out there for you to venture out. But don't rush
When I finally get to go to a restaurant you bet it will be without a mask - duh how else can you eat ?Thats exactly what im going to do Chico. You make sure you dont wear a mask now since youre so tough and macho! Just the flu remember. Youre chico proofed.
Old saying. If you are NOT PART OF THE SOLUTION, YOU ARE THE PROBLEM.This is not the best presentation but will have to do. I'm always amazed that most can not, will not step up to the challenge of problem solving.
Instead of bitching and moaning... pointing fingers... blaming others and doing that all day and night long waiting for someone else to ease your pain; some actually do things.
Together with other teams and individuals, 2,000 face masks have been given to those in need in 4 days. It's not only the masks, it's an educational process. It's community leaders from isolated areas, a couple of committed friends and our PN buddies reaching out.
To get this done took alot of friends not only in the D.R, but friends in Miami that has partners in Singapore that has associates in China. Not easy. Holding another 2k in reserve .

I will die someday in the not too distant future (like Eddie Haskell), but it isn't likely it will be the Kungflu that does me in.
It has nothing to do with being macho, just not cowering under a table, spreading the media fear, and also wanting to return to have occasional meals out with a cold brew.
If you unfortunately get the Wuhan flu, remember these words: (whispered like 'plastics' in The Graduate) ...
