Change in the way the CDC want numbers reported.
With that noted the Governor and Dr. Acton decided more details were better than the new CDC Guidelines.

The numbers you will see today are under this new reporting systems
CSTC helped with the new guideline. They provide technical guidance to the CDC

Old system - Doctors were only allowed to confirm a case that was actually confirmed by a laboratory tests.
New recommendation - is will include cases that meet the following criteria. We will report both the new and old numbers so you can see the difference.

The new number represents
Quick test that test positive for COVID-19 Antibodies in their blood. These were not reported in the old numbers
A person will be counted if there is evidence if there is presence of COVID-19. OR they will also be counted if there is no test but no other likely explanation. Based on systems, and possible contact with a COVID-19

When it comes to death, if there was no test but the cause was symptoms similar to COVID-19, and had contact with someone, they could be ruled death by COVID-19.

Have a peaceful weekend.

Dr. Amy Acton
There are different ways to test, but we still do not have them yet in any number worth reporting.

They are waiting for the quick test, that will tell us who has recovered. That is the important data.

We still cannot test well enough for any large changes in the number.

“All of these numbers are a gross underestimation of the actual numbers.” Until we have full and readily available testing we will not know.

For patients and doctors Essential Surgery
1 [/bT]hreat to a patients life
Threat of permanent disfunction
3 Threat of progression
4 Threat of rapidly evolving symptoms.

If you are in pain, or have conditions that are worsening go to the emergency room.
