    My assumption is that tests are conducted on targeted section of the population. The more infected people they find with no travel and no contact with known carriers the better idea the officials will have where that ‘super spreader’ is lurking out there. Also, if I use the last ten days data as a tool I expect less than 10,000 confirmed cases by the time the total tested reaches 1,000,000. Assuming the current recovery rate will remain the same(around 20%) there will be around 8,000 active cases by then which may not be overwhelming to manage. I am trying to be optimistic in a sea of pessimism. I’m really, really trying so hard. May The Good Lord Save Us All!!!
