re: Louisiana COVID-19 - April 7, 2020 Update: 16,284 Cases - 74,655 tested - 582 dead - GFunk
The good news is that it looks like it's cresting and/or falling a bit ever so slightly. We still have 3+ weeks to play with so by that time who knows what we might know about the virus, how it reacts, how we should react, potential treatment, increases in our capacity and testing, etc. Definite...

At what point will we be able to start showing statistics of, "recovered," or "resolved"? - GFunk
I'm not trying to be morbid, but the 46 deaths at this time are the only cases that we know of in Louisiana that have resolved that we can't contribute to just anecdotal evidence. I'm certain there's a reasoning behind not showing this number, but at some point it will be useful and knowing that...
