The death rates for COVID have collapsed in my state. So have hospitalizations. So now there’s a new metric aimed at keeping us captive: positivity rate. It’s completely incomprehensible to a normal human, which is why it’s used.
Everybody at work is, of course, convinced that this “positivity rate” means they are about to perish amid horrific suffering. “We are at 7!” they exclaim. “Almost 7,5! Do you know what this means? Disaster is imminent!”
Forget “who’s on third.” This stuff is better. Seven! Eight! Eight what? I have no idea but it sounds real bad!
This is never going to end.
