According to the latest data, there are 45 cases in Sumter county, 22 in Marion county, and 44 in Lake county.

Per capita, there are 2 to 3 times as many cases in Sumter compared to the other 2 counties.

From page 1, today's DS:

"The results of 2,280 people tested for COVID-19 at a drive-thru site in The Villages last week show no evidence of significant community spread, UF Health announced today"

The data is out there.

You mean all the golfer’s pickleball players, and walker’s don’t have it? YET? After all they are the scapegoats.

I've yet to hear from anyone who understands what is really happening in the US and globally suggest that we don't need more widespread testing. While you may not want a "stick up your nose" it is not for "no good reason." This isn't going away until we have a vaccine or until enough people contract the virus and develop antibodies and are not able to continue to spread the virus (R naught is < 1). Many (most?) epidemiologists believe this is probable but we don't know enough to say for certain. We don't know how quickly the virus mutates and more importantly, if the antibodies are effective against the mutations. This is why the serological test that Dr. Birx is talking about is so important and then they'll stick a needle in your arm to draw blood.

That "stick up your nose" may save a stick in the ground for someone else, possibly even a friend or loved one. While I don't want to contract the virus myself, I'm more worried about being asymptomatic and infecting other people - particularly my friends and family.

I believe one of their goals is to find out about asymptomatic spread.

This is old news - The Villages is more inclined to be a hot bed of flu cases in future. Will start will golfers, pickle ball players and their friends who think they know who they have been around. Who is safe????? I hope I am wrong, but personally I am staying inside as much as possible. And I love golf, but not now.
