With COVID-19 stories on the top of every news site in the country, many people in the state have made checking the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) COVID-19 Dashboard a part of their daily routine.
Those folks who checked the numbers and did the math had quite a shock on Monday, March 15, which is the only day that the Dashboard reports the number of people in the state who have recovered from COVID-19.
The number that is most reported in the news is the total number of people who have tested positive in the state since March 2020.
NCDHHS, in the report “COVID-19 Patients Presumed to be Recovered Updated March 15, 2021,” stated, “Patients Presumed to be Recovered 874,709.”
The COVID-19 Dashboard on Monday, March 15 reported that the number of people in North Carolina who have died from COVID-19 since March 2020 as 11,709, and the number of people in the state who have tested positive as 886,218.
So, if you do the math on the numbers provided by NCDHHS, 874,709 have recovered plus 11,709 who have died the total is also 886,218, which means according to the NCDHHS numbers, 886,218 have tested positive and 886,218 have recovered or died, which means nobody in the state of North Carolina currently had an active case of COVID-19.
The numbers are dropping, but that would be remarkable news.
However, according to an email from NCDHHS, the number of people who presumed to have recovered posted on the NCDHHS website on Monday, March 15 and still up on Tuesday, March 16 at 10 a.m. was wrong.
It was evidently corrected around 11 a.m. on Tuesday, March 16 after NCDHHS had been questioned about the numbers. There is no notation on the revised report that the number reported earlier is being corrected, but the date of the report was changed to March 16, which may have some people wondering why a report that states, “These data will be updated every Monday by 4 p.m.” is dated Tuesday, March 16.
The correct number for patients that are presumed to have recovered according to NCDHHS on Tuesday, March 16 is 852,752.
The number who have recovered or died is 864,461, and so the number of people in the state who have tested positive and have not recovered or died is 21,757, which is a lot more than zero.
But in a state with 10.5 million people, that means that 0.2 percent of the people in the state have currently tested positive for COVD-19 and have not recovered or died.
Huh? I recently read that the average age of all those in the U.S. who died of Covid (or had Covid when they died of another cause), was 82.
That that means, that except for those of advanced age, or with compromised immune systems; this whole lockdown thing is a HOAX. Designed to get people used to being controlled.
OMGF this narrative is absolute garbage! No one knows how many active cases there are. Period. NCDHHS is only giving a retrospective look at how many people have tested positive in the last two weeks AND are still alive. People can carry this for months. Stop John, just stop.
And we’re supposed to believe the numbers? Sounds like they can’t keep their story straight, or what most of us call lies. If you’re surprised by this, you’re part of a much bigger problem.
“They blinded me with science.” Numbers. Misinformation. Fixing the CDC guidelines. Cows! Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. Come on man, the FBI will investigate.
