Thanks for the links.  The people who have had it a while ago and have "not recovered" are not still contagious I would guess.  So active cases (That we know of) that can spread the disease are much lower...and more in line with what I was saying, the positive results of the last 14 days or so.

As the media tells us that cases are surging in Florida, they do not tell you that the amount of testing done has also increased.  On 10/21, 10/22 and 10/23, FL performed more than 100,000 tests per day and the percent positive was 5%, 3% and 3% (rounding off).  That is a massive surge.

I don't know where you get those low positive results from FL.  As the Johns Hopkins  data show, the positive results in FL were 14.3% on Oct. 22, 8.4% on Oct. 23, and 6.2% on Oct. 24.  So, these are huge numbers.  They are going down, at least for now, but the testing rates are increasing (1.2%, 1.3% and 1.6% over those same three days)!  So, that goes completely against your argument.
