The only reason the number of cases increased from what we've been seeing, is that there are more test kits available now. Had we had the same number of kits when this whole farce began, this would be even more of a non story.

First it was flatten the curve. We flattened it to tiny tiny. Now all of a sudden its gotta have a cure, a cure what is going on. This is insane.

Each time you report the number of new cases in Fond du Lac County, please report how many new tests were taken for that report. Better yet so we have the whole equation instead of just part of it to track this better in our community, please indicate what percent the new cases are compared to the total number of new tests. Then we will all know if our per capita infection rate increasing or decreasing. Thanks.

How will that help re-enforce the scare narrative? No thinking allowed
And why does FDL County Health website not update numbers on the weekend? This is supposed to be a emergency-yes? But not on the weekend.

5.4% +. Barely moved the dial because more tests being completed
139/2556 tests x100= 5.4%
