The good news is that positivity is falling but there are reports this week highlighting that many labs weren't reporting any negative tests, only the positive ones. So that overall positivity was exaggerated for a period.

If you just look at the largest labs, they are reporting both negative and positive and that looks like it averages out around 9-10% but is around 15% in the hard hit Miami-area.

Overall, the story here is that it's not getting significant worse and that's the first step towards it getting better. At the same time, I don't see how you can stop the spread -- especially in asymptomatic cases -- if the long reporting lags on testing aren't fixed.
