My impression is that the Covid death rate in the US is holding steady, but that the number of cases is way up. This *could* be explained if the US really has “flattened the curve” and if testing is being increased massively. Is that likely to be the main truth of the situation? (with the delay in assigning some causes of death, being just a detail, relatively speaking).
Positive test percentages are up despite increased testing. This isn’t it.
