A Few Thoughts on COVID-19 Case Positivity Rates in Florida
This video blog intends to address a common series of questions surrounding publicly-available information on the case positivity rate, since it is one of the important markers of how states and communities are doing to control the novel coronavirus.
To make the explanation based on actual data, I use information from the public COVID-19 dashboard in Florida. Keep in mind that the purpose of this video is not dive deep into the possible "whys" behind case positivity rates, just to shed light on some of the issues surrounding interpretation of the information.
This video was originally generated on June 19, 2020, which explains why the information presented is a bit a little over one week old. Would love to hear any comments or additional questions you may have!
