Dr. Bruce Dart of the Tulsa Health Department reported Monday that the positive rate by our Health Department has spiked to 15%, suggesting the increase in positive cases is not solely due to increased testing.

I’m not a Tulsa emergency physician and I also think the rally is a terrible idea.

We have crossed the line. What a difference a day makes.
We just need to test more to find more negatives to get our positivity rate down.
