    Some positives are false positives. Some positives are truly covid19. The more people test, you're going to have more positive tests even if they are false positive and not really infected.

    Because so many more are being tested, many more positives are inevitable .

    The scientists call it a "novel" virus, meaning it is new to mankind, and none of us have any resistance to it.  It is rapidly spreading around the world, and more and more people are contracting the virus.  When those people get themselves tested for the coronavirus, they get a result of "positive", confirming that they have it in their bodies.
