Still not over, but possibly at the beginning of a very long ending.

MoCo Numbers continue to climb and climb!

But the daily increase is flat or smaller. That's what they mean by flattening the curve. Still not over, but possibly at the beginning of a very long ending.

It went from 200ish to 700ish to over 1,000 every day this week, not sure I'd call that flattening.

Here's the new daily case count from https://montgomerycountymd.gov/hhs/rightnav/coronavirus.html

5/1/2020   454
5/2/2020   165
5/3/2020   231
5/4/2020   234
5/5/2020   157
5/6/2020   249
5/7/2020   242
5/8/2020   284
5/9/2020   239
5/10/2020   207
5/11/2020   147
5/12/2020   221

So yeah, not as flat as I had previously stated, but nowhere near 1000 new cases every day.  Were you looking at Maryland data?

well if it wasn't for that fake report on 5/1 (come on people, you know Obama did that) the curve would be a lot flatter

Yeah its hard to tell what happened that day. Presume it was some "catch up" reporting that would have smoothed the curve a bit. Fair enough to consider it spurious for trendline purposes.

Brooks, who is also the chief operating officer and director of technology development at a firm called RUCDR Infinite Biologics, has come up with a coronavirus test that relies on nothing more than spitting into a cup.

His firm has won emergency use authorization from the Food and Drug Administration for saliva tests that people can perform at home. Its a breakthrough in a nation that has struggled to expand coronavirus testing to the degree experts say is needed to safely return the country to some degree of normalcy.

I don't think you've spent enough time in Red State Country to realize that that is actually a major turn on for a fair share of the rube population.
