"Confirmed" Coronavirus Cases are Rising Faster Than Ever

New cases of the novel coronavirus are rising faster than ever worldwide, at a rate of more than 100,000 a day over a seven-day average.

In April, new cases never topped 100,000 in one day, but since May 21, there have only been less than 100,000 on five days, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. Newly reported cases reached a high of 130,400 on June 3.

How much of this is due to changes in reporting standards about what is counted as a case of COVID? How much comes from tens of thousands of dollars in financial incentives for each case if a hospital diagnoses COVID?

And how much of it comes from the natural evolution of the virus, which becomes more contagious but also more harmless because of the forces of natural selection? We can see this in the fact that deaths from COVID are not rising, even though doctors have been instructed to report every death that could conceivably be associated with COVID as a 'COVID death'.
