Kansas City Metro COVID 'Positivity Rate' Plummets Despite Third Wave Threat

As always, it's important to define terms for those who don't know . . .

A positivity rate is the percentage of people who test positive out of all of the tests done. The higher the positivity rate is, the more concerning it is . . . The (controversial) World Health Organization set 5% as the threshold for "too high" for COVID-19. KMOV reminds us: The higher the number, the more it indicates community spread, the need for more testing and the stricter restrictions become. A low positivity rate means there's more control over the virus and the lesser need for rules.

  1. 3rd wave if republicans take white house back from cheating karencrats.


  2. Yes Italy prepares for an Eater lockdown as the real reason they don't want you celebrating anything let alone celebrate the risen Jesus Christ. This is all about control and lets not forget Italy's role of the tyranny in our country by way of our last election and the people who were threatened if they spoke out or allowed it in the courtrooms.


  3. Meant to say Easter.

  4. TRUE^^^^^DAT>>>>>>......As long as China JOE's (DEEP STATE) in-charge were all GOOD.......SAD But TRUE.

  5. Killa kc has had 286 new cases since feb 14th, thats less than 10 new cases a day, that’s not a plummet, that’s a dive from the tallest mountain in the world. And as y’all have guessed, they’ve dropped like a rock since the lyin cheatin despicable dimwits took over, imagine that.

  6. It's all Fake News. It always was. I told you that once the democrats were back in power the media would start saying everything was getting better.

  7. And guess what else? We’ve had 121,099 people vaccinated, over 80,000 have gotten at least one shot and around 40,000 have gotten both.

    Very soon they’ll be no reason for lickass and that complete idiot dr wrecks to keep the shitty locked down.

  8. You mean the red star lie isnt happening ? Wow

  9. Thank god governor parsons is in charge, if a demoncrap was in charge there would have been fifty thousand deaths and no plan for vaccines or distribution, but as it is, Parsons has the covid response running like a well oiled machine! Unlike kc who has no idea what the hell they're doing, and it shows with their racist rants of how unfair it is even though they have given out the second most vaccines in the entire state.

    New cases have declined because fewer people tested.

    1. Well skratch em...3/13/21, 6:29 PM

      It's also the fact they've changed the rules as in you need two positive test to be positive.

  11. The vaccine wasn’t brought in for the covid. Covid was brought in for the vaccine.
    Once you realize that, everything else will make sense.

  12. mask wearing has improved versus months ago and so have the infection numbers.

  13. Representative Fart and Swallow-well3/13/21, 7:32 PM

    There are a lot of idiots one here. I occasionally fall into that group.

    But 5:30 pretty much deserves the Darwin Award for STUPID.

    What a hoax.


    Lying liberal scum killed so many with this hoax.

    I hope we can still keep wearing masks for another five years.

  16. space helmets for Earth are coming next.

  17. Thank you, Almighty Lord, for giving Donald J. Trump to America in a time of great need to deliver a COVID vaccine in record time through his Operation Warp Speed because of his business management expertise and can-do attitude. Amen.
