Bush the Elder and Bush the Younger has a lovely ring to it... like Pliny the Elder and Pliny the Younger from antiquity. Excellent suggestion kind sir!

Yes it is interesting how some of the Weak Kneed politicians like to dog pile Trump. Just too convenient to impress their cronies or is it the pay offs from the Liberals that get them to publish this stuff. A person's word is certainly worth nothing in this day and age.

Well regardless of the conservative nature of this publication, they do quote the Austin Pravda.........

I have no doubt there have been thousands that have been wrongly counted and the numbers will continue to hopefully decrease! The sad part of this is that normally lowering the cases of any disease by 3,500 would be great news towards eradication but with daily numbers hovering around 10,000 in the state alone.... :(

The severity of the jump in the last month (since June 17th) is truly frightening and I pray for recovery of those affected and that the curve flattens sooner rather than later.

Does kind of make you wonder about the accuracy, not to mention the veracity of some of the reporting........ let’s face it, tragedy sells and I am not demeaning those who are infected( I learned today my great-niece and her mother have been hospitalized with the virus ). I am appalled however at some who attempt to place blame instead of working together to, at the very least, work toward finding effective treatment.

I am sorry to hear that smokey. I will keep your great-niece and her Mom in my prayers.

corona.help is the best site I have found... I've been comparing their numbers with the local numbers put out by our region and they are generally spot-on or within a patient or two on a daily basis. The odd time there will be some disparity but a day or two later the numbers work out. I can't say they are accurate for anywhere else because I have only been comparing my local numbers but corona.help seems to be doing an admiral job in a horrible time.

There are also people being counted twice. I know of people who go to a different county and get tested as positive. They got reported in the county that tested them and then as well in the county they have an address in. Back in March we had 3 medical workers who were sent to West Texas to help assist out there. They rented an apartment and never came back home for over 3 months. After being out in West Texas on their second month there they got infected and tested positive. Not even being a risk to us back home, they still tagged our county since that is where their main address is but their infection was and stayed over 300 miles away from us.

That is a fair point and the numbers are skewed. There is no denying that however that is just a small fraction of the count. People need to remember that.... July 17th 2020, Texas had 17,421 cases reported with 198 deaths. I think people need to focus on getting the curve flattened and stop distracting themselves with the odd number being counted twice. Texans are dying and the state needs to do something immediately before more lives are lost needlessly! I worry about everyone on this forum and all my other friends I have made in Texas every single day and I am praying that the curve flattens for Texas and for America. This is absolutely heartbreaking to see the record numbers every day. I am praying every day for this pandemic to come to a close and our lives to go back to the way they were.... I mean that from the bottom of my heart. Stay strong Texas!

Wow, that's really sloppy or dishonest reporting.

If San Antonio had to clear 3500 cases because they were never tested I would not be surprised if this was going on all over the country. By some reports I seen they expect the numbers to be padded by 25% and higher. That certainly changes the game because it lowers the severity of it. A friend of mine, his wife was one of the first cases in the county over from us, and she was placed on a ventilator. She is a high risk, cancer (survivor) patient. She pulled through and is fine now. He never got tested and never had any symptoms. Regardless, they assigned him a case number and monitored him daily by phone. They presumed he was positive but never tested him. It would be a shame if they were doing this to every close contact of those who tested positive. I'm thinking they just need to wipe the slate clean and start the count back at zero and only count those who are tested. Shutting things down based upon presumptions just doesn't seem like a good idea to me.

Thank goodness your friend's wife recovered! I imagine it was a very scary time for the family with her being a high risk case. I definitely think wiping the slate clean would at least provide more accurate numbers from here onwards.
