CDC Director Robert Redfield attributed the spike in cases across the United States to "many factors to include increased testing, community transmission, and outbreaks in settings such as nursing homes and occupational settings." In response, some of the most populous states and cities have paused or rolled back their reopening plans. [What Redfield failed to mention is that the tests are incapable of distinguishing between COVID-19 and many other viruses, including seasonal flu. For all we know, the so-called "cases" of COVID-19 could be responses to other things. The entire charade of "case" statistics is theater, not science.] -GEG
