Here's the situation with COVID-19 in NC
Sen. Jeff Jackson , images courtesy Jackson 

Many of my constituents have told me they feel like there's a lot of bad information out there about the COVID situation - but we've also reached a point where people are tired of being told what to think. They're very skeptical about people - especially politicians - making bold claims about what the future holds. So here's what I'm going to do: I’m just going to show you the key data points here in NC and let you see for yourself where things stand. The biggest number that everyone follows is new daily cases. And that chart certainly looks discouraging.  The biggest number that everyone follows is new daily cases. And that chart certainly looks discouraging.
BUT then you follow it with data about new daily testing, and you see that a lot of the increase in new daily cases seems to reflect the increase in testing. It’s become a common observation that more testing leads to more (confirmed) cases, and that appears to be true in North Carolina.  link
