    I've got no way to parse out stats on those ILI being anything more than trends, not quanitity you can compare to another quantity taken with a different methodology.

    BUT what if you have an area that shows no significant coronavirus positive test and especially if they aren't testing much (as we aren't) then those up swings are highly suspicious for active coronavirus infections that are just not being tested.

    When we had NONE in most states a couple weeks ago but influenza illnesses started going up in some places, I would hazard a guess that was coronavirus.
    So all you can compare is trends.
    You'd need someone PhD smart to run some models to estimate how many untested positives are really out there right now.

    "The pandemic is accelerating, It took 67 days from the first reported case to reach the first 100,000 cases, 11 days for the second 100,000, just four days for the third 100,000, and the fourth 100,000 just two days.” - WHO Director General

    I can't open it without some subscription. Cliffs?

    BC is offering a one time $1000 to those who miss work for being sick or having to take time off to self isolate or care for kids or whoever. Feds are allowing $2000 a month for four months for the same reasons.
