Covid-19, Percentage Positive Metric

The percentage positive metric is reliable information because the volume of testing does not skew the data. For example, if 1,000 tests are conducted and 100 results are positive, percentage positive is 10%. If 10,000 tests are conducted and 1,000 results are positive, percentage positive is 10%. Regardless of the volume of testing in this example, the percentage positive is comparable.
