111 out of 70,000. Not bad. Face masks must be working.

mpjeep - Your statement is factually incorrect. There are 111 positive cases from a population size of 2449 - not 70,000. The entire population (70,000=N) has NOT been tested. The data (as presented) demonstrates 4% of all patients (2449=n) tested positive. You need to rethink your math.
