These are useful links:

 

Positive test ratio

Daily deaths

 

It's interesting how your positive testing data looks different from the CovidUSA positive testing data.

Just like everything else... nothing to it as long as it's happening to someone else. I had a friend who passed from it last week and know two others who tested positive. And the FED will decide what's bullish for the market.

The deaths are unusually high and the Republicans are running out of space to store them.


Yup it's the Republicans needing to hide the dead bodies!! Wow, it's obvious why political disputes are not allowed.

No it doesn't.
The bottle neck could be in autopsies.  If you don't have enough qualified staff for autopsies, it slows down the process. 
 
 In practice, local jurisdictions only support sufficient permanent morgue capacity to handle the usual number of fatalities from all causes expected to occur there over time.

Stop seeing things through a political lens and do your research.

I am looking at numbers, I understand that many posted in this thread are politically related. I am neutral.

Sometimes I wonder why people get confused about things which are so obvious.
It is best to remove the deceased covid-19 patient outside of the hospital area to prevent spreading the infection.
A good place would be a truck parked away from people.
Weather in states like Texas and Arizona has been very hot lately.
Obviously you don't want to store a body in an un-refrigerated truck in 100 deg temps.
 
But I am not going to buy stocks in companies making refrigerated trucks.
For one thing hot weather will go away in a few months and so will covid-19.

Why confuse people. Morgues are used to store the dead. Refrigerated trucks are for unusual deaths.

To be clear, since we are on the subject, refrigerated trucks are used to store corpses that neither the

hospital or the nearby morgues have space for or the morgues can't pick up fast enough.

 

At Wyckoff Hights Hospital in Brooklyn, NY near me they have used three of those 48ft long Thermo-King:) trailers and carpenters built shelving

from 2x4's and plywood so that they could pack the bodies 4 high. The continuous hum of the generators running 24/7 made the entire neighborhood depressed.

 

According the doctor in charge of the medical effort (he was featured in a lengthy article in Time Magazine

because his small hospital had the first recorded death in the US) 300 people died there from Covid-19.

A small hospital would normally have refrigerated storage for 2 to 3 bodies.

 

Some funeral homes took all the bodies they could, packed them up to the rafters as they say

and there was one that stored the overflow in UN refrigerated U-Haul trucks out on curbside until neighbors notified the authorities.

 

I am continually amazed that people who show capacity to make supposedly rational investment or trading decisions try to talk the severity 

of this away by declaring things are not too bad, the numbers are improving, etc while the country is now past 4 million confirmed cases.

This is analogous to being bearish ignoring the facts and signposts all the way up in a roaring bull market.

Hey now, anyone can be an armchair expert in the markets and COVID with the internet between them and a plethora of followers. It's funny to see rookie traders become "professionals" after learning what a head and shoulders pattern is. A week after learning what a put option is they can start their own subscription service.

 

Unless someone constantly risks REAL cash on trades, I hesitate to take them honestly. That doesn't mean their ideas aren't worth discussion. Knowing what's important and correct analysis is by far the most important skill. I've seen so many schemes and charlatans. I'm willing to bet at least half of those claiming to be traders posting youtube videos or trading advice on twitter fail to make money. There are traders out there posting "XXX is about to make a HUGE move" and shortly after showing their enormousness gains, when in fact they took both sides of the trade and post their winner.

 

As for me, I've done fairly well in three weeks in one of my accounts. (the drop was a withdrawal). Only how do you know it's not faked? It's not, but you get the idea.

 

I guess COVID works in a similar fashion. What's clear to me and should be to anyone, the situation in the US is a complete disaster when compared to other countries. Again, knowing what's important and correct - Follow the data.
