Wait... Smash Mouth played at a biker event?

Yes, that happened. Sturgis is THE biker event, btw.

If a bunch of them went there w/o masks, got infected and brought it back to people in their hometown, i imagine the numbers could add up quickly.

This sounds like BS. There have been approx. 1,000,000 new cases in the entire country since the Sturgis motorcycle rally. You're telling me that one quarter of that came from people that attended a rally in South Dakota?

People go to Sturgis from all over the country. If you look at photos from the event, there's very little social distancing and very few masks. Every other planned event close to this size has been canceled or done virtually, so yeah, it actually makes total sense that Sturgis would end up being a massive super-spreader event.

...almost as bad as those 'assholes' that go to the McDonald's drive through for their McChicken.

It probably did cause the virus to spread that much.

It was a protest to hold the event despite the government sanctions.

Why wasn't there an uptick in the graphs? Surely if 25% more of the entire total of new cases occurred we would see a bump in the graph. Not only do we not see a bump, but we see a great decline.

What world are you in that you're thinking cases are declining?

The real world

They still haven't dropped to where they were in April thru June which was already too high. That's called an increase when things go way up and a little down but still higher than where they were when summer began.

Maybe you can post a definition from dictionary.com or whatever your preferred site is, but Noldor claiming that 'cases are declining' only requires that the cases be trending downward, not be at or below a specific number.

Just for Noldor's benefit:

The national case rate per 100k is currently 88.

The South Dakota case rate per 100k?

235.

There's your Sturgis Effect.

If you buy something for $1 in April then $2 in July ands it's $1.75 now, did the price drop?

Yes- - the price went from $2 to $1.75.

Very well. You choose to look at short term where i prefer to look at the overall picture. April to current isn't that far apart. If it took 4 years to go up then dropped quickly, i would understand that view better

How about a graph that does average daily cases per month instead of day by day. Seriously a slight drop for a couple days doesn't mean the overall picture is better.

Noldor and CD remind me of big brother in 1984

It wasn't 'a slight drop for a couple of days', the peak was mid to late July and has been trending downward ever since.

If you don't like the graph that Noldor posted, feel free to provide your own if you think the trend that his shows is wrong.

Nothing wrong with his graph. His and your interpretation leaves something to be desired. More average cases beginning of September than beginning of June (That's summer in the northern hemisphere) soooo, cases went up this summer. Simple.

Cases went up during the summer and have been declining through August and into September...
1 month ago - Saturday 9/12/20 - 10:07:53 AM EST (GMT-5)
And are still higher than they were at the beginning of summer

Nobody is disputing that.

Higher =/= declining
