From The LA Times:
The California Department of Public Health has directed all laboratories to report positive results directly to county health departments until the problem is resolved. Some county health departments are resorting to counting the testing results by hand to get accurate totals.
Counting. We’re having problems counting.
Notched bones were also found in the Border Caves in South Africa that may suggest that the concept of counting was known to humans as far back as 44,000 BCE.
I work in technology and I understand the complexity of this problem, but for chrissakes all we doing is counting.
