    REGARDING:
    “318,316 people live in Escambia county. 1660 test positive.”

    That statement would be true if all 318,316 people had been tested.
    It would mean that many currently have the virus active in them if so.
    It would not tell how many had been exposed but never infected.
    It would not tell how many had never been exposed.
    It would not tell how many have infected and are over it without injury..
    The differences among 0.005, 0.005%, and 0.5% have already been explained.

    It is what it is, neither more nor less.

    David for math understanding

    1660/318316 is .005, which is .5%. #math

    318,316 people live in Escambia county. 1660 test positive. That comes to .005% of the population. It’s more political than it is medical.

    Come on people, let’s put on them masks.

    “How many protested side by side while not wearing mask? Just wondering.”

    How many people went to restuarants/bars or went to high traffic areas without wearing a mask? Just wondering.
