    Why the rise of symptomatic and asymptomatic but not in deaths?

    I don't know.
    First, there is a lag between the increase in cases and deaths.
    It usually takes 2 - 3 weeks for people to expire when being treated in the hospital. Some patients are intubated for as long as 30 days.

    Second. Although often misconstrued, the more testing = more known cases is true. My guess is that the previous level of testing was not an accurate indicator of the increase in infected people in the general population. In other words many people became infected but did not bother to get tested. Now that there is more testing there is an increase in the number of known cases, but the overall number of known + unknown cases is still the same.

    The most important statistic now is hospital utilization. At this point it is the only statistic that matters and is accurate.

    Your point that this does not effect young healthy people and that we should just let old and immunocompromised young people die is a valid point of view. But we should manage this so that these people get a chance at surviving with reasonable amount of health care.

    Letting the old and weak die is a valid point of view. But as has been proven before, those who think the at-risk people can be sheltered from this are ignorant of the facts.

    getting tired of the lack of compassion here... when it seems to be the young who flout the rules and spread the virus and the old who follow the rules....
