One thought on “Upward numbers continue at Lehigh; Moravian stats

  1. These numbers are reason for concern about students, the effectiveness of the preventive precautions, and the adequacy of the testing regimes. Students have been back on campus for about 6 weeks, which allows for at least 3 rounds of passing it on — where are the new contagions coming from if the testing is adequate? — Since COVID is most contagious before symptoms appear, it appears that testing is not catching new cases early enough to stop the spread and that the anti-contagion measures are inadequate or not being followed. We also don’t know whether the isolation measures are working or how serious the cases are.

    As always, statistics don’t give us answers, but are good for raising questions.
