Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Powerlineblog.com: “Coronavirus in one state (81)”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The authorities attributed only two new deaths in the data reported yesterday, neither including a resident of a long-term care facility. Woo hoo! Yet long-term residents continue to account for 76 percent of all deaths attributed to the epidemic.

Yesterday’s results continue the low fatality rate in the data since mid-June — unexpectedly. Over the weekend the authorities attributed six new deaths (8/1) and 8 new deaths to the epidemic.

New cases continue at a relatively high level on increased testing volume. Hospitalizations have increased insubstantially. Kevin Roche puts it this way:

[W]hile cases are somewhat similar to the peak in May, hospitalizations and deaths now are way, way down….[see his accompanying chart]. To find any cases now we are having to do a ton of testing and we are turning up a small proportion of positives and almost all are very mild or asymptomatic. This has reached the level of absurdity.

You would never know “this” (as Kevin puts it) from listening to yesterday’s Minnesota Department of Health press briefing (audio below). That much I can tell you.
