If you test zero people you get zero cases

If you test millions you get millions of cases

Rise in cases is a reflection of rise in testing

If you keep testing you will keep adding new cases



Huh?

Say there are 1,000 people and 100 of them have Covid-19:

If you test no one, you still have 100 cases. Your just ignorant about them.

If you test 500 people and 50 of them test positive, you still have 100 cases, but you have more information about how many cases you have.

If you test entire population of 1,000, you still have 100 cases, but now you have complete information about the number of cases.

Testing does NOT change the number of cases you have, just how many you know about.

Generally speaking, the less information you have the worse off you are and the more information you you have the better off you are.

Testing gives you more information, not cases. It’s just math and science.

Also, generally speaking, if someone just repeats what Trump says they’re going to sound as stupid as Trump does.
