[ExI] Virus testing

A certain well-known politician has insisted over and over again that the
only reason the number of COVID-19 cases is going up is that more testing
for it is occurring. Since June 1 testing has gone up by 80%, but the
number of positive results for the virus revealed by those tests have gone
up by 215%; for the last two weeks the largest increase per capita has been
in Alaska, Montana and North Dakota. So the well-known politician is dead
wrong, as is his habit. Speaking of the dead, for the last 2 days more
Americans have died from COVID-19 than any day since May 28, and summer is
supposed to be the quiet time for virus pandemics. But hey .... at least we
don't have the horrors of Hillary Clinton's email server to worry about.
