Whilst I like the idea of the ‘2 pizza team’ as originated by Amazon, at some point we are going to need more than just me on this.
Currently it shows a 26% positive rate on ~12,000 tests but the trend on the graph makes it seem like cases are way up - they're not. The high 2022 datapoint is from 450,000 tests with a 36% positive rate - a significantly worse situation. The 2023 peak datapoint of 44% positivity is only from 3000 tests. With a lot less testing happening the results are significantly skewed by selection bias.
We also can't make any comment on outcomes from the positivity results data but I'd wager more recent positive results are less likely to result in hospitalization or death (due to vaccines or natural immunity).
Another reason that COVID is less fatal now is that hospitals have more resources available (less hospitalizations) than they did during peak pandemic and thus can actually treat patients. Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8025594/
Thanks for the wastewater link, thats an interesting data source. Not sure why you think asking for a source is "sniping" you're the one who made a claim and I was interested in the basis and wastewater data isn't really in the top results of searches...
I love looking up any major brand's Wikipedia page

Tim Cook laid it out for his investors as to why the company will always be against users repairing gheir devices. When people can repair their devices, they don't buy new ones. When people don't buy new devices, Apple doesn't sell them new devices. It's that's simple.
Making cringe inducing skits about how much they care about the environment while doing everything they can to make iPhones disposable is the kind of corporate duplicity that’d make oil companies blush
