The increased visibility helps with isolation and contact-tracing which depresses the spread. Helps catch more asymptomatics too.I had been wondering if the positivity rates are for people showing some kind of symptoms. I guess no. So, the lower rates don't necessarily mean a lot. I mean, where I am the P rate is around 2-3%. Some places in the US are over 25% right now. But if a whole lot of people are getting tested with zero symptoms it doesn't tell me a lot.
