Came across another news article citing COVID positivity rates instead of per-population infection rate. I think I know why. People get tested when they think there's a chance they have the disease, ergo the positivity rate is much higher than the per-population rate. This makes for scarier news. Scary news sells.

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
