I've been checking my county's health dept. COVID-19 numbers daily since the first week of April. They supposedly update the numbers daily before 2pm. I hadn't been strictly paying attn to the #'s at first, but after the 1st week of this I noticed the number of cases only appeared to change by one. So on the 2nd week I wrote the numbers down. They have listed number of cases, # hospitalized, number of deaths, # of confirmed and # of probable. Since I started writing it down I noticed the #'s of total cases have not changed at all, although the # of deaths went up slightly. Not a big surprise there, since I know from news accounts that almost 70% of the cases were connected to two nursing homes. The number of deaths has not changed in over 2 weeks. They don't list new cases or recovered, and I found out why today when I contacted someone. I thought the numbers weren't being updated, but it turns out they post total cases reported or suspected by just adding to the total from before. He said the reason they don't list recovered is that they never received official guidance from the state on how to classify or define who has recovered. It matters not if you got sick 2 or 3 months ago and are negative on a test now. So the totals are only an accumulation of when they started posting #'s, from probably the last 2 months.
