Covid-19 case positive rate

The case positive rate measures the covid cases divided by the number of tests.

This is a more reliable indicator of the infection rate within the community, compared with the number of cases.

If more tests are carried out, we should expect more cases.

The table below shows the number of confirmed cases and the number of tests over the past month.

Around June of this year, Singapore carried out 16 tests per 1,000 population (i.e about 80,000 tests a day). This has dropped to 4 test per 1,000 in December (i.e. 20,000 tests a day).

There is a sharp drop in cases. It went to a high of 3,500 cases a day and it is now at 800 per day.

Could the drop in cases be due to a decrease in testing? The dates shown on the charts are quite difficult to follow, so I am not able to form a conclusion.

  • opposition dude:

    Fewer tests because 98% of cases are mild. Just go ask anyone who has had a mild case of the virus. No medication just own immune system fighting the virus. So since 98% are mild why bother call MOH to report right?

    So since most people choose not to report then down come the cases and everyone is happy. Hooray, less than 1000 cases a day so we can don’t wear mask liao, screw social distancing and gather in groups of 10 everywhere!

    Life back to normal liao!

    It is just statistics supplied by themselves.
    Underlying conditions is easy peasy way to con the cottony sheeple.

    Well,LKY said sgs are daft.
    Come to think of it,he was quite right.
    Even those who con others are just slightly less daft than those they con?

  • Statustics Can Lie:

    Statistics can lie or tailored to lie.
    It has become a tool lying and lying all over the places. Who can tell who lies, it’s anybody’s guess.

    As simple as that. No conclusion but perhaps some illusion and/or collusion.

    Cannot Convince, Confuse.

    Confusionism is the religion of the New World Order. Statistics is the Holey Book.

    for a while, the govt covid management was looking questionable. but now it is clear they made all the right decisions. today, we have both economy and pandemic under control. go to orchard road and see the crowds. except for travel part and night spots, we are almost back to normal. cases down to 400,though frankly nobody bothers about checking the numbers anymore. imagine if we had followed people who were saying to lockdown at every few cases, we would be gone, under lockdown for months. Spore not China we got only one city. China got 1000 cities so they can always lock down a few cities doesn’t impact the whole. in fact, if you see, there is some lockdown going on almost throughout last 12 months in China but different cities or provinces. Singapore cannot do that. kudos to the government.

    @Mr. Tan; no need to crack your head for any conclusion!

    Since most of Covid-19 variants were mild or asymptomatic, if no testing there would be no case.

    Reduce testing reduce cases, no testing means no case. Simple as that!!

    Now that the unvaccinated are not allowed to go anywhere, no testing was required. So no case.

    Just wait for the 2 Omicron cases from the airport to spread. We would know!

    If you pay me $1 million, my vaccine sure can keep out TKL from TRE. 100% efficiency guaranteed. No joke.

  • the numbers / statistics:

    //for a while, the govt covid management was looking questionable. but now it is clear they made all the right decisions. today, we have both economy and pandemic under control. go to orchard road and see the crowds.//

    under control ?? really or not ?? so how about 6 to 9 months ago with lesser cases and lesser mortality, that was even better (perhaps can even call it as heaven ??) than “under control” now (more reported CONVIT cases and deaths than 6 to 9 months ago ??) ??

    if you change your definition of or adopt a lousier standard, of course a bad situation can be spun off as “under control” OR something positive lor ?? you can also label a person a mathematical genius if he gets 4 = 5 (it all depends on one’s definition / standard or wayang lor ??) ??

    //though frankly nobody bothers about checking the numbers anymore.//

    really or not ?? so does the garment bother keeping the numbers / statistics for their OWN USE ?? or it is just the white IB gang propagating the idea that nobody bothers about checking the numbers anymore ???

    //Spore not China we got only one city.//

    but sinkie land hor still got open-leg policy leh even though one small red-dot city ?? CN has many provinces and cities, but don’t think they are so open-leg policy like sinkie land hor ???
